A dark, sexy, black humorous tale of sex, violence, the male psyche, and an unstoppable whirlwind adventure of finding love in the most least likely location.
Set in modern day Edinburgh, an average everyday working man in his mid thirties is given the devastating news that he has terminal Brain Cancer. Refusing any kind of help or Chemo treatment, he struggles with overbearing thoughts on becoming a better person and giving into his natural urges, social fears and sexual desires to do and act however the hell he pleases. No longer wishing to obey the rules and regulations of monotonous every day life and society. Now our hero yearns to know what it’s like to live a life without regret and consequences while his mind is still a healthy functioning one.
The story unfolds with a slow burning tension as our hero eventually turns his back on modern day society and begins using his terminal illness as a license to act out his biggest dreams and fantasies. Good and bad. While also squaring up to a couple of long time buried, but not forgotten, tragic demons from his past.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Movies and books with tragic love stories like Taxi driver, Trainspotting, Fight Club, The Bucket List, Factotum, Betty Blue, Falling down, all helped contribute, in some small part, to the writing of this book.
I would also say that combining some of my own personal experiences in life along with some of my own crazy dreams, goals, desires and fantasies that I never got around to achieving or fulfilling out… just yet. Inspired me greatly too to write this novel series.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
They are all pretty much based on real people who I’ve met throughout my life. Some have been merged into one while others are just an exaggeration of their true selves. But they are all real people to some extent.
About the Author:
Born in London to Scottish and Irish parents, Sean spent most of his childhood and teenage years growing up on the move in the likes of Cyprus, Germany, Wales and England as an army brat. With a keen interest in both reading and writing he was diagnosed with the travel and writing bugs very early on in life.
Now, writing, reading and traveling are his main passions in life, but he also loves outdoor sports too from Rugby and Hiking to Tennis and Boxing.
His main inspiration for writing today comes from living in such a beautiful, Gothic and hauntingly, awe inspiring city such as Edinburgh. This charming wee city has given Sean so much amazing inspiration to write the more time he spends there.
At this moment Sean is writing another two books, one is a sequel to his science fiction novel Alone. The other is about his recent back packing adventure through Eastern Europe.
So far he has two published work of fiction –
The Universe Doesn’t Do Second Chances and Cafe Independence.
And 4 self published novels.
