Happy Veganuary!!! 💚 🌱 🐣

So I leave people alone all year about killing and eating animals. But one month a year I let fly. Most of this is on daily (or more) posts to facebook – mainly because it’s convenient. However, I’m going to make a concerted effort to pull out everything I post there and put it here in the wilds of the Internet, where it can roam free.

I hope you’ll drop in, and take this opportunity to reconsider how closely your choices are aligned with your values. (Presuming you’re not pro-animal-cruelty, pro-environmental-destruction, or pro-heart-disease, which I find pretty much no one is. )

Lots of love,

What Alice said. (As no personage less eminent than Janet Maslin said of her writing in the New York Times, “Nice work if you can pull it off.”) Happy new year, everyone, and much love. 💚 🌱 🐣

Happy first day of Veganuary! (I may as well begin as I don't intend to go on, with some humour value. 😂 💚)

Yay! 💚 🍕 🌱

Fuchs is the author of the novels The Manuscript and Pandora's Sisters, both published worldwide by Macmillan in hardback, paperback and all e-book formats (and in translation); the D-Boys series of high-tech, high-concept, spec-ops military adventure novels – D-Boys, Counter-Assault, and Close Quarters Battle (coming in 2016); and is co-author, with Glynn James, of the bestselling Arisen series of special-operations military ZA novels. The second nicest thing anyone has ever said about his work was: "Fuchs seems to operate on the narrative principle of 'when in doubt put in a firefight'." (Kirkus Reviews, more here.)

Fuchs was born in New York; schooled in Virginia (UVa); and later emigrated to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he lived through the dot-com boom. Subsequently he decamped for an extended period of tramping before finally rocking up in London, where he now makes his home. He does a lot of travel blogging, most recently of some very  long  walks around the British Isles. He's been writing and developing for the web since 1994 and shows no particularly hopeful signs of stopping.
