Take me from where I am,
And guide me closer to you.
Give me the scars that tear out your heart,
So I can be closer to you.
Kiss me again and feed me your pain,
Then haunt me when I am alone.
Nestled in mind, I hold you inside,
And make your sorrow my own.
As death closes in, I burn deep within,
Taste your breath and caress your face.
Before I should die, please take me aside,
For one last eternal embrace.

A Rising Fall - 5 years old

My first novel published five years ago today. The first in a dystopian trilogy entitled CITY (my unfinished symphony)

A Rising Fall (City Book 1) "Live as you love."

Ten years after the blackout, a group of humans struggling to fight off a conscious famine, try to re-learn empathy to save humanity in an old industrial assembly plant.

In 3 days; feigned affection, deception and a black heart will take them to the repression of their own fears in search of New Utopia.

"In flavour it is a bit of a mix of Greg Egan’s Diaspora, Yevgeny Zamiatin’s We and the 2002 film, Equilibrium. As such, it is in good company......The plot is engaging and keeps you reading, with a successful “show-don’t-tell” technique that is often lacking in contemporary literature."

Done - The Inscrutable Mr Robot

Done ! 

My 15th novel 'The Inscrutable Mr. Robot' is finished. Last words have been written. The right ending should always come as a total shock but at the same time should come as little suprise. 

Hopefully I got this one right. 

Sure there's some rewrites to do but the blind walk is done; now it's just elaborating on what's already been written. 

Anyone who knows the misery and lonlieness of writing can attest to overwhelming joy and calm that comes from finishing a book; however fleeting it may be, this moment is the only reason I write.

Let's drink !

'Dark Existential Fiction'

Monday, November 06, 2017


Do your dirty peeping and poking here. Leave a cigarette butt, a footprint, or your guilty expression smeared on the glass.

Dark existential fiction that is just as rich in philosophy as it is strange and uncomfortable.
From the reclusive mind of Irish writer, C.SeanMcGee, fourteen novels that delve into the perverse and ever-lurking shadow of humanity: where all the more interesting stories take place.
When questioned on his own twisted and weirdly optimistic perspective of life, C.SeanMcGee merely replied,
“One must be a complete failure at life to any good at writing about it.”

Through the charred wreckage of one man’s philosophy, an adventure into conscious delusion and dark dystopian fantasy begins as the survivors of The Nest find themselves on three paths where each will endeavor to rein their conscious minds to grasp the philosophy of existence and abate the shackles of conscious Famine as they march onwards towards New Utopia.

On one path, Marcos, having woken naked and amnesic at the scorn of ancient women whose immortality derives from the wearing of young girl’s faces like decorative dresses; is chased through a dense wilderness for the face that he wears whilst drifting in and out of conscious Famine, giving a glimpse into The City that was, one of obligation and Infant Industries.

On the second path, in The Kingdom of the Hound, Ruff the dog is awoken to conscious debate, rationalizing and philosophizing with an ostentatious small Chihuahua called The Bitch Queen over the nature of unconditional love as he fights to save the lives of his human friends from being gamed by savage hounds and monolithic boars. 

While on a third path, The Woman will unravel, through conscious delusion, the true extent of her repressions and her loveless abandon as a young girl; Safrine, through childish rhyme, is challenged by a creepy old man into a game of coloured cubes to save her two companions from the effect of The Famine.

When Alex wakes bound in a wooden coffin to manic cursing and abusing, he finds something he’d never imagined having, a true friend. In the days that follow, a small oddly tempered doll called The Gruff will teach Alex how to say no, how to sharpen his claws and how to kill a man. 

And a triangle of deception will leave Alex wondering who the real victim is.

Amigo The Cat

A boy met a wolf on the way to school,
With a cat by its legs and one bloody tooth.
It's heart was rampant and it had a long empty stare,
So long it had no idea that the boy was even there.
You see there'd once been a struggle, the markings of a fight,
Enough blood had been spilled to take a dozen or so lives.
The boy asked the wolf: "What on Earth has gone on?"
And the wolf it replied; "I was wrong, I was wrong."
Its voice it was cold like the end of July,
For death and remorse were the shape of its eyes.
"Why now?" and "What the devil have i done?"
The wolf wept and wailed where it lay beneath the sun,
"Would you do the same thing if you got to again?"
Asked the boy to the wolf like a friend would a friend,
The wolf replied; "Sure, i probably would."
"But i'd feel worse in the end than i probably should."
"You never expect what went on today."
"And when it finally happens, you're taiken away."
"You lie there all stupid on the dirt in the sun."
"A simple mistake and it all comes undone."
"I know what you mean and i hope you fare well,"
"But mine will be worse if I am after the bell."
So the boy called the cat and they both walked away,
And the wolf died alone at the end of the day.
