d.s. Eliot spent ten years of his life in semi-retirement, building preposterously large structures, teaching himself the art of cheese making. How not to make bad whiskey and gin crafted in the old back yard, before retiring to pursue his true passion: writing fiction.
He released his first novel, “Kalgoorlie”, in December of 2017. It became the first book in the James and Miceal Series, that is flying off the shelves. The plan is to translate the book into 5 languages, and to also develop a screen play for a major motion picture.
The second novel, “Roma”, follows James and Miceal to Rome, where d.s.Eliot holidayed with his late mother and now husband. A wonderful bonding with a hardworking teacher, his mother had lived life in the small town where he was born. Roma was released in March 2018.
His third novel, “Duras”, is almost complete and will also be released in 2018. As always d.s.Eliot always goes to base, a small village in the south of France that by chance he visited near half his age. It was a cold winter holiday, but very much joyous. An infamous castle ‘invasion’ not beknown to the owners at the time, is a hilarious story, he will share with you if ever you meet.
James and Miceal don’t let up there and d.s.Eliot follows up with the next of the series now under development, “Sitges”. He has also begun planning for his fifth novel. Some of the drafts of “Nairobi” are being penned on the odd break.
