An explosion rocks a Qatari natural gas facility… a luxury cruise liner capsizes in the Mediterranean… and someone has stolen a submarine…
Are the events connected?
Dan Taylor doesn’t believe in coincidences – all he has to do is convince his superiors they are next in the terrorists’ line of fire.
As Britain enters its worst winter on record, Dan must elude capture to ensure the country’s energy resources are protected. At all costs.
In an action-packed adventure, from the Middle East through the Mediterranean to London, Dan and his team are on a quest which will test every choice he makes. Assisted by the exotic Antonia Almasi, Dan realises he faces an adversary far greater than he ever imagined.
And not everyone is going to survive.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Both White Gold and Under Fire took a lot of research time. Being techno-thrillers, I really had to make sure that I sounded like I knew what I was talking about – in order to bend the facts to fit the story, I had to start off with something plausible. All up, Under Fire took 18 months from start to finish and six months of that was probably made up of researching facts before I could put pen to paper.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
First and foremost – pay to get a professional edit. In fact, think of it as an investment. When your book is released with heaps of spelling and grammatical errors, you can kiss your reputation goodbye. It doesn’t matter how good you are at marketing if the product doesn’t live up to the hype.
Secondly – get a professional book cover designed. Hunt around and work with people until you find the cover designer who gets what you’re imagining in your head. Send them links to book covers by authors you like, or from the same genre as your work. Don’t expect your cover designer to be psychic – give them as much information as possible and you won’t be disappointed.
Third – be nice. Support other authors. Say thank you publicly to people who help you. Promote their work. Act professionally at all times.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Under Fire was spawned out of reading an article about the UK’s gas crisis over the winter of 2010. I felt that it wouldn’t be the last time the UK government found themselves in that situation, and what would happen if someone, or an organization, took advantage of that?
