About the Author

Sam McGrath was the youngest soldier to achieve the rank of major since the Second World War and has been running the selection course for the crack Parachute Regiment for the last three years. In his spare time he organises the Para 10 – a charity 10 mile race which anyone can enter as long as they are prepared to run in combat boots and carrying a rucksack. This year he also completed the Bob Graham Round for Help for Heroes – an endurance challenge climbing 42 peaks in the Lake District with a combined vertical ascent of 27,000ft over 72 miles – and all in 24 hours.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.

Val Rowe

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.
