Humourist, journalist, mathematician and author

When ruthless anti-gun activists pick up guns, who will they shoot first?

Buy my fast-paced SUSPENSE NOVEL, TARGET 91, to read about a 32yo journalist/heroine, who does something seemingly impossible in todays political climate. She listens to both sides of the gun debate. All the small details in the novel are based on facts from gun lobby rants to legally-blind citizens being able to buy guns in Iowa. Some of the absurdities of gun ownership in the States are truly bizarre and hilarious.

Those pea-brained, doped-out, tree-hugging Leftards are coming to take your guns

In TARGET 91, my satirical novel on American gun culture, I sourced pro-gun talk from gun owners chat rooms and gun club websites. Here is Gig DeKant, CEO of the (fictional) NGSA (National Gun and Shooters Association):

‘Those pea-brained, yellow-bellied, doped-out, tree-hugging, faggot Leftards have sympathizers working in each and every government agency and, mark my words, they are coming to take your guns.’

Can blind people legally own guns in the US? Um, yes!

My satirical novel TARGET 91 looks at absurdities on both sides of the gun debate, but here is one of the many legal absurdities showcased in the book:

“This is how stupid the gun debate has become. Polk County Officials in Iowa have issued gun permits to people who are legally blind. Refusing a permit would, apparently, violate the Disabilities Act. Is this why the 2nd Amendment was written? So blind people can own guns? Do we really need a blind militia to protect this country?”

Is this the most controversial novel ever to be published in the US?

There are many twists and turns in the plot of TARGET 91. But with guns, sex and an outrageous (but fictional) National Gun and Shooters Association (NGSA) CEO ranting SHOOT THE LOONY LEFTIES, what’s not to like especially when the ‘LOONY LEFTIES’ start shooting back?

“To get anything done the radical has to commit evil acts for good causes.”

                            David Brooks, New York Times, 11 DEC 2017

How to Survive in a time of VICE and FOLLY

TARGET 91 is a satirical novel about a very serious subject. AMERICAN GUN CULTURE. Why satire?

SATIRE: trenchant wit, irony, or sarcasm used to expose and discredit VICE or FOLLY. (Merriam-Webster)

SATIRE is the only sane response to a time of VICE and FOLLY.

American Gun Culture in the Crosshairs

TARGET 91 is a SATIRE on American Gun Culture.

I didn’t just stumble across this theme. American Gun Culture has been the air I breathed ever since I was Annie Oakley with a cap gun as a kid. I sat cross legged on the floor watching TV shows from The Rifleman, Texas Rangers, The Lone Ranger, The Cisco Kid …. and more. Many more.

I grew up on a Police Station in rural Australia where my father’s .22 rifle rested against the side of the fridge. He carried the magazine in his pocket. Our own car, an FC Holden – maroon  with a white roof – was the police car. One time, Dad, actually blew the passenger’s window out of the car with that rifle. He was firing a warning shot over the heads of escapees and failed to notice the window was still wound up. 

The ‘What if?’ question of a fiction writer for me was ‘What if anti-gun activists picked up guns?’ The plot of TARGET 91 exploded from that point.
