'HÄAGEN-DAZS KILLER STRIKES AGAIN!' screamed the headline, as did executive Peter Jenkins. It was a PR disaster. That was three.

'What flavour this time?' his … Continue reading OTHER BRANDS ARE AVAILABLE
Here's a short, entertaining interview I gave to Nicholas Adams over on his blog - 'My Laughably Inane Blog', talking about my novels - the already published 'A Justified State', and 'State Of Denial' and the upcoming 'State Of War' to be released in 2020 - as well as writing, reading and other bits and … Continue reading Author Interview with Iain Kelly on MY LAUGHABLY INANE BLOG
