Imagine…What If John Lennon Had Lived?

‘FAB’ is a fast-paced, rip-roaring ride through the 1980s – a decade in which greed was good and shoulder pads made sense. It was an era of uncertainty – of Cold War and nuclear weapons. ‘FAB’ also pokes fun at our obsession with celebrity, whilst fondly recalling some of the unique fashions and pop culture moments that made the 1980s so unforgettable.’

‘FAB is a creative, well written novel that takes a political speculation and makes an immensely clever puzzle out of it…the suspense is carefully built up until the final, startling climax.’ – Indie Reader



The Outsider Tales
