I'm an author. I've written FOUR true stories, one, #WrongPlaceWrongTime is becoming a movie.

The best book since 'Pick-Up Lines for Pensioners'
Miss Betty Jones
You just have to buy this book!
Miss Galena Sublime
have no idea what it's like sitting on a shelf in the poetry section of
a bookshop. Have you ever noticed how literature designated as being
intellectual is always hidden like some top shelf publication in a sweet
shop? I get so lonely down there in all that prehistoric dust. Truth
be known, I get picked up less than Betty Jones at number 47 and shes
As you might have gathered, I'm a little different, well some
might even say special! I'm not so much a poetry book, more a
biography of everyday living. Within my pages you will find the musings
and poetry of an 'ordinary' bloke from down your street. This is the
life and times of Joe average, a testament to life as you know it and a
vote for the real world.
You could say I'm a snapshot of real
life written by a real person. If you buy me I promise to sit on your
coffee table and pretend to be intellectual, just think how much more
sophisticated you will look!
About the Author
Andrew Barber was born in 1969 in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire. He was
educated at Glebe House in Norfolk and the Wisbech Grammar School. He
didn't write his first poem, "Britannia Rise" until 2011, but his first
collection, Me, My World, and I was published the following year. He
works as a system architect and spends a lot of time travelling. He
considers himself to be a normal bloke from down the street. And he is
enthusiastic about writing poetry that is easy to read and easy to
I picked up Wrong Place Wrong time, because of all the great reviews it
had received and I was looking for something different than what I
normally read. I do read non-fiction, but never true crime.
a little nervous. How much do you believe when a person is trying to
declare their innocence? Will it be unbiased? Will it be worth reading
or just pages of self-serving justifications. Mr. Perlmutter is accused
of arson and man slaughter while he is on vacation in Spain.
am happy to say that my fears were unfounded. David Perlmutter gives us
his account with an honesty that is almost painful to read. We are
shrunk down to a tiny size, so that we can ride around on his shoulder
and get to see first hand how so many different events and choices led
him down a path to that night that changed his life.
sinks its claws into you and doesn't let go until the very last word.
The night I started to read it I woke up about 2am and couldn't go back
to sleep until I had seen him to the end of his tale. It was worth
being tired in the morning. Never before had I experienced such a
visceral response to a "character" in a book. I yelled at him to stop
being such an idiot. I wanted to reach out and give him advice. I
wanted to slap the stubbornness and foolish male pride right out of his
head and I wanted to put my arms around him, to comfort him and let him
know it was going to be alright.
David Perlmutter made a lot of
stupid mistakes. He was a bit of an arse, he was a hero, he was
sentimental, he was stubborn, he was sweet, he was desperate, he was
human. He shows us his bad side and his good side, leaving us free to
decide how much he is responsible for what happened to him.
tale is a roller coaster ride and you don't want to get off until the
end. The twists and turns will leave you breathless. Buy this book, but
start it early in the morning because you won't want to be up all night
reading it and you won't want to stop reading until it's done.
Other Side Of Night by Chris Martin has received stunning reviews and is well worth checking out!
"When Luke Farmer and his two best friends find a cell phone in the park,
they are thrust into a world of adventure and mystery. With his newly
rescued Golden Retriever, Boone, Luke is determined to figure out what
is so important on the phone and why someone will do anything to get it
back. Other Side of Night is a heart-pounding story of three friends
forced to rise above their fear and face unknown adversaries in order to
discover the truth."
