Banjaxed! Chapters

This is it, this is Banjaxed! Finally.

A gentle Irish word for broken. This is the first draft, nearly 75,000 words, but only formatted for the web, not as a book, so please forgive how scantily dressed it might seem.

I’d love to know what you think before I stick my head out the window of this speeding train (Chapter 9). Use this contact form to comment or chat, or email me at, wait for it –



I was told that the first words of a new book are always the hardest. So I left this ‘til the end. But they were wrong.

The events in this book happened more than 30 years ago and are all true. But while I pride myself on a great memory, it’s not a flawless one, so there’s always the possibility that I misremembered certain small facts, names, or conversations.

Most of the names have been changed. Many events have been left out, mainly because I’m still nervous to talk or write about them. That’s as forward as I can be. This is for the bnjxd.
