    About the Author: "This is the second book I've published, the first one was through Baen (different penname). Went the self-publishing route this time to avoid the hassle. I suppose the only important information about me is I'm a college student with tons of stories swirling about in my head, and they've gotta go somewhere."

    About the Author: "Beer writer and New London Writers blogger, Clive La Pensée, made a worldwide name for himself, writing about craft-beer brewing. Critics put The Historical Companion to House-Brewing in the ten best beer books ever written. That was back in 1990. He was ahead of his time and brewers have told him that his beer books contributed to the craft-ale revival we now witness. In order to sidestep the demands of the publishing industry, he created one of the first Indie Publishers - Montag Publications. Five beer books on, he decided to crack the fiction-writing genre. He turned down requests from CAMRA for further books and started writing his first thriller - The Last Stop. It plays in Berlin, currently among the most vibrant of European cities, and is a tale of underdogs fighting back. It explores the moral dilemma of exploitation. If the exploited defend themselves, can the end ever justify the means, if the means are illegal? The main protagonist is Maria, an innocent from Poland, embroiled in the Berlin sex industry. She can only survive by fighting back. Short term, her tactic works but once she is on their radar, the chase is on. She recruits Jack, the artless retired tax inspector from sleepy Leamington Spa, thought he was on holiday. TheLast Stop is a compulsive page-turner. Set some time aside to finish it in one or two sittings. Fiction publishing is notoriously fickle, with publishers retreating into safe titles. Clive argues, one should enjoy the adventure of writing and communicate that joy to the reader. One can only do this when unconstrained, so he called Montag Publications back to life. Clive will also reprint his success The Historical Companion to House-Brewing this autumn, fully revised. Second hand versions of his first run are fetching close to three figures on E-bay. It’s time to get the text within reach of normal people. His second novel, Longings, is a coming of age comedy thriller, ready for an October release. The third in the trilogy of self-reliant women, is Goddeses, and also about a woman taking the world by the scruff of the neck It will appear in 2017.

Clive believes there has to be a philosophy behind dabbling in literature, art, film etc. Art for art’s sake is not his thing. His reason for writing is the desire to expose exploitation and repression. ‘Only when we cease to abuse and subjugate others, can we be free ourselves.’ He also publishes a regular blog and poetry at New London Writers"
