THOMAS J. EYRE NOTORIOUS MINDS AUTHOR
I was born in Oxford, England and moved to Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire when my family relocated in 1969. I left school at the age of 15 and worked as a cook, waiter, plate collector and washer-up in my parents truck-stop/transport cafe before joining the Royal Navy in 1973. As an Aircraft Handler/Crash-Rescue Fireman and I am proud to have served on Great Britain’s last true fixed wing aircraft carrier, HMS Ark Royal before she was scrapped in 1978. Since leaving the Royal Navy I have worked as a long distance class 1-HGV driver, drayman, fettler and mechanical engineer. I worked on contract in Libya and in 1995 became a Bachelor of Science after graduating with a 2:1 honours degree from Bournemouth University. A motorcycle accident in 2000 left me with serious injuries, finished my engineering career and almost my life. I now live in Poole in Dorset and after many years writing stories for my own amusement has been prompted by friends and family to publish some of them. Desert OverWatch is book one of my CodeName:Orcus series, is set in the backdrop of the desert in Iraq, in the run up to the first war in the Persian Gulf, after Iraqi
dictator Sadam Hussein sent his army in to occupy Kuwait. Old rivalry surfaces with deadly consequences amid the stress, tension and danger of life behind enemy lines. The British FrontLine, the second of my books in the CodeName:Orcus series, follows Royal Marine Sergeant Patrick Regan who is repatriated from the fighting in Afghanistan to bury his mother and step father, after they are killed in an explosion that destroyed their yacht. On returning back to Great Britain, Regan finds out his half-sister, Susie, is missing and he sets about finding her. The body count begins to rise when he discovers that Susie has been abducted by Russian Mafia gangsters. The Namibian Offensive is book three and is another Paddy Regan thriller. This time the CodeName:Orcus team goes overseas to rescue one of their own who has fallen into the hands of the worst faction of Boko Haram zealots. They are in a race against time to rescue Sarah before she is killed. Islamist Paedophile rape gangs also become the focus of the team when they are tasked with sending out the message that their time abusing British children is at an end.
