    An uproarious underworld whodunit, Ronan O'Donnell's single-hander reworks the hardboiled crime thriller for our times.
    A suspicious death at the workplace and loner security guard Nick Prentice is hauled in for interrogation. The Inspector thinks he's got his man, as Nick's seedy wee 'stories' seem to nail him to the crime. Is he complicit in the death of two-bit shoplifter Gary Glover? Will Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson come to his rescue?
    'Ronan O'Donnell writes in muscular, imagistic language that throws a light on the underclasses in Leith today' - British Theatre Guide
    'Poetic genius…brilliantly directed…performance of a lifetime' - The Scotsman
    'a powerfully atmospheric and bleakly comic piece of theatre' - The Herald Scotland

    "Looking Good, Mary" is something my parrot used to say to me and when I was feeling low it gave me a real lift. This book of poems started as a collection of memoirs that I wrote for my children. It is a mixture of things that happen in everyday life - funny and sometimes sad. I am still amused as I read these as every one of them is a true story from my life.

    One of the most miserable and lonely places in the world is in a prison cell. The reason not being because you are locked away in a space the size of closet, away from society but because you have so much time to think. In the outside world you have resources to help make decisions and can move around to see for yourself when making choices. Being locked away physically also has the upmost mental effect on even a stable mind. 
    One of the hardest decisions is figuring out exactly what path you will take once released from prison. This is vital because essentially the release the release date is the first day of the rest of your new life. The main character must make this decision but has to use his heart to guide him.

    In the land of Taletha, the Wife Market is the prime place for young lords to find a spouse...but not the place for love. Something Inara knows all too well. After six years of rejection, she has no hope of being chosen for anything but a plaything. 
    When the future ruler of Taletha arrives at the Market, Inara is chosen. More shocking still, Dhamar is exactly what he appears to be: kind, gentle, and willing to build a relationship of mutual respect and trust. 
    Yet Dhamar has his own demons to fight. With a tyrannical father pushing for war with the Šerians, a scheming council, and the burden to protect those he loves, Dhamar is stretched thin. He wants to be a good husband to his wife, but how? 
    Thrown together by chance, will breaking down their walls reveal something beautiful, or leave only shattered pieces behind?
