BIOGRAPHY Allan John Lewis was born, a son of a coal miner, in August 1939, just before the outbreak of World War 2.

He started work underground for the National Coal Board on his fifteenth birthday. He married in March 1961 and has two children, a daughter and a son, and two grandchildren.

Deep down he always wanted to be a writer but he felt thwarted by his lack of education. He would write a few pages and give up, frustrated by spelling and grammar. (This was before the days of personal computers.) As a young man he didn’t have much time to read or write. He was working two shifts on the coalface, and when his daughter came along he got himself another job as a part-time fireman.

By the time he was in his late forties and his two children had married, he found time to start reading again. He enjoyed the adventure novels of Wilbur Smith and the works of James Patterson and Lee Child. He loves a good crime thriller.

The pleasure he found in reading rekindled his desire to write.

He would create stories in his head, but did not put pen to paper in earnest until he retired.

Then with the help and encouragement of his son he worked on five action novels to a first draft stage.

Get Out of My Dreams is his sixth novel and the first he has brought to publication. A follow up story is already in preparation.

Kill The President's Women (Joe The Magic Man Series Book 2)

by: Allan John Lewis

In January 2013, a bloody gun battle at the Algerian B.P. gas plant in the Sahara desert claims the lives of 40 workers and 39 Islamist militants after a three-day siege. After undergoing specialized training by an al-Qaeda affiliate in Afghanistan, the two eldest sons of one of the slain militants receive their mother’s blessing to avenge their father’s death and carry on his legacy: the elimination of Western women in government who speak publicly and who also blaspheme. Five months later, the brothers land in San Francisco – two willing suicide bombers intending to kill the “President’s bitches”. Deputy Director of the FBI, Frank Brubaker realizes that he is on the back foot and quickly activates a new special task force consisting of two highly trained special agents and two equally special civilians. One of the civilians – “Joe the Magic Man” – is an elusive, roguish character with a hidden identity and highly potent powers of mind reading, telepathy and hypnosis. As the FBI struggles to come to terms with the potential destruction he could wreak with his powers, they find they have no choice but to work with him, especially because he possesses the ability to invade peoples’ dreams and extract withheld information. The manhunt is conducted in earnest, with every passing second increasing the probability of the militants’ success in making a bold statement on American soil.
