Writer and artist John Lyes brings together several genres in his books both from a background in writing as well as being a screenwriter and comic strip artist. Merging from classic British detective mysteries to the spice of action and adventure in his fictional biographical espionage thriller "Triple Shot Doublecross", to a homage of crime and psychological mystery in his first in a series of "Breaking Arliss", John's muse stems of a Japanese-themed short story (soon to become a full fledged novel) as well as several children's books, due out shortly in 2016, "Travels with my Ghost" due out 2016 and "The Blue Fedora", a hard-boiled detective novel at the end of 2015.
