We have recently published The Drama Merchant, a wonderfully provocative novel set mainly in Cardiff and Tenby. Tim Rees is the author and we will shortly be publishing another novel by Tim. But firstly, please read the back cover blurb for The Drama Merchant:


James loves Gemma and Gemma is apparently super-glued between her legs, according to Steve anyway. And so the drama begins as James’ professional world is exposed to the full glare of publicity.

James is a specialist soldier, Steve is his opinionated best friend, Ally is a girl without inhibitions; and Gemma? Well, Gemma is young and arguably a little misguided. They are all in their late teens, early twenties and discovering what love means as they make mistakes and grow through experience.

The story is played out against national headline news, social media and TV debates after James and his specialist unit’s identities are leaked to the press.  Is James a hero or a killer? The nation is divided.

This is a fictitious drama where the scenarios and characters are drawn purely from the author’s imagination. All views expressed are the responsibility of the characters who are young individuals with strong personalities.

The novel contains strong language and explicit sex. The sex isn’t gratuitous, but, what the hell, we all like sex and when you’re young it is, perhaps, the greatest adventure.


The Drama Merchant is available in paperback and on Kindle. The audiobook, that has been read by Tim himself, is now available at Audible. The audiobook is FREE with Audible trial.

We’re not sure what the rain and bird noise is at the start of the sample recording. Tim didn’t record that. We are waiting to hear from Audible.

Why not listen to chapter one and let us know what you think? But remember, this is chapter one and it isn’t a military story, it is a love story.
