An experience as the victim of crime motivated Lance to become a writer. He was waiting at a set of traffic lights in Aberdeen with his girlfriend. Four men set upon his car and tried to goad him to get out of his car for a fight. Fortunately no harm came to Lance or his girlfriend, though his car was badly damaged by this unprovoked violent attack.

Direct Action Novel

Direct Action Lance Black

Direct Action went on sale in July 2007 locally in Aberdeen and sold 500 copies within the first two weeks. It then made number two on the WH Smith Scottish list of top books. Direct Action by Lance Black is a fictional book set in the Granite City using locations such as Ferryhill. This gritty book, loosely based on real life events, is suitable only for those aged over 18 years. Direct Action deals with the under belly of society involving graphic accounts of anti-social behaviour such as violence, boy racing, drug abuse, road rage, alcohol abuse, dangerous dogs and the violent crime that goes on in a big city such as Aberdeen.
The secret life of Aberdeen features heavily in Direct Action and characters include oil millionaires, seedy lawyers, paedophiles and vigilantes. Add in a bit of sex and you have an eye opening book written for adults.
The main plot surrounds a violent murder and Lance draws upon his legal experience to write in a legal loophole that could see the murderer go free and unpunished. Zero tolerance could be the answer...

Aberdeen Lynne Golden Retriever

Have you seen my beautiful golden retriever Lynne out and about in Aberdeen? Ask her for a high-five! She's a Bravehound PTSD assistance dog, so we'll often be in shops, restaurants, and the cinema together.

We've written a book where I talk about growing up in Aberdeen and then joining the army to be a medic and nurse, and developing military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

I also talk about losing my son to suicide and the therapy I have had at Royal Cornhill Hospital and grief support groups in Aberdeen.

The author, Damien Lewis, said of Lynne:

"A powerful account of what one dog means to one man on his road to recovery. Both heart-warming and life-affirming. Bravo Chris and Lynne. Bravo Bravehound."
