Status Quo Aberdeen
It's become a Christmas tradition that the rock group Status Quo comes to Aberdeen to cheer our winter blues with their live concert at the AECC. Aberdonians love to air guitar to Rick Parfitt and Francis Rossi as they belt out hits such as Down Down, Rockin' All Over The World and In The Army Now. Members of the audience have been known to bring inflatable guitars to strum along too as Status Quo provides the hits.

My new novel:
The Aberdeen skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
Former Royal Air Force Regiment Gunner Jason Harper witnesses this and then his wife, Pippa, telephones him, shouting that she needs him. They then get cut off. He sets straight out, unprepared for the nightmare that unfolds during his journey. Everyone seems to want to kill him.
Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?
The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of local horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.

Rick Parfitt and Francis Rossi of Status Quo have been coming to Aberdeen for many years during their over 40 year's musical career. The only exception was in 2005 when the gig was cancelled because guitarist Rick Parfitt had to undergo medical tests for a suspected throat cancer. Fortunately he has had the all clear and is still Rockin' All Over The World during their 40th anniversary Europe Tour.

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."
