The Sexual Language Of Strangers (novel)

Black Beauty: A History And A Celebration (Chrysalis Books)

An eccentric millionaire invents a bizarre game in which he pays a team of handpicked men to seduce women he selects at random. Things begin to unravel when one of the men develops feelings for a women he seduces. As they both battle against their aversion to intimacy neither is prepared for the shocking conclusion that awaits. 

The journey of black beauty within Western culture, from antiquity to the present. It analyses the aesthetics of make-up, hair, skin-tone and facial features amongst people of colour, and the way in which these motifs have fared within Eurocentric culture. The narrative draws upon a galaxy of black stars of film, fashion, music, television and sports. 

WE HAVE BEEN SHOCKED and appalled by the murder of George Floyd in the US, and heartened by the resistance of the Black Lives Matter movement. In the aftermath, what matters most is not this painful past, but what we are going to do now. I am determined to transform my feelings of anger, pain and sadness into something positive and inclusive, which gathers and unifies citizens of all ethnicities who believe in fairness, equality and love. Hopefully that is you.


As a writer, to do my bit to assist, I am looking to raise funds to write, produce and publish an illustrated history book that narrates the story of society’s prejudices against BAME people in the 21st century, and the subsequent work of Black Lives Matter. Each person who donates the book price or more (£45.00/$55.00) will receive a copy.


I have written before about the history of the black experience, in a book called Black Beauty published in 2000. It went on to become a bestseller, was honoured by the New York Public Library and become the subject of a three-part BBC documentary. My proposed new book is a “sequel” which continues this literary journey into this new century.


The title will become an important educational and historical document that will both inform the growing audience of people seeking to understand how we got here, and also help ensure that the aims and values of the Black Lives Matter movement continue to resonate. 


This is the most important time in the history of the struggle for racial equality since the death of Martin Luther King in 1968. Let us not allow it to pass without doing what we can. Donate now, and let’s go!
