'Through The Yellow Death' is set in post-apocalyptic South-West England in the near future. Through the eyes of ordinary people living through extraordinary events, the reader is taken on a journey that explores the morals of torture, sexual abuse, religion, prejudice and equality.

John has Asperger's Syndrome and lives on the edge of Society. He is a loner, socially inept and friendless. He works from home at a job he has grown to hate. His only satisfaction comes from his obsessive hobby, but even that is restricted by chronic injury. One day he awakes to find he has survived a global pandemic that has all but wiped out the human population.

For most survivors, the Yellow Death is a shock they may never to come to terms with. But John has never fitted into Society's rules and he sheds no tears for the old world. He sees it as a chance to reinvent himself - to become the person he felt he should have been, living by his own wits and beholden to no one. However, events lead him down a different path to the one he has chosen. Against his nature he must find a way to live and work with other people.

Kim has been abused and betrayed by men all her life and knows they can not be trusted. Her experiences after the Yellow Death only reinforce that view. However, events lead her to a point where she has to face her worst fears to save the life of her friends.

At around 280,000 words, this is an epic read with a complex plot. The author uses a possible scenario of the near future to explore thought provoking issues facing modern society and asks questions such as; "Can torture ever be justified?'" and "'Can rape every be excused?'"
