Welcome to my website,
I’m author Graham Clews.


I’ve written a memoir and six books and my latest fiction novel is A Slightly Tainted Hero. It’s a humorous yet philosophical look at an accountant’s late-in-life romp with marriage, money and his 15 minutes of fame. For more on the book and to read excerpts, go to The Books page.

 

I previously released Politically Detained in September to coincide with the federal election. This book is particularly relevant today with the new government.

The state of our federal affairs has piqued my sense of right and wrong and, just as important, my sense of what is patently unfair. Thus Politically Detained was created with an unusual cast of characters who bring an adventurous interest to an often boring topic.

 

This site provides the background for all of my novels in print. Click on the book covers below for more on my works. The Eboracum trilogy appears in chronological order, Books I to III.



A Slightly Tainted Hero


Dave Lockwood is an accountant. He just turned sixty and he’s feeling old--mainly in body rather than mind. Then there’s his office manager, Irene Blanchard. She’s about twenty years younger, about the age Dave’s mind seems to think it is as it valiantly labours to adjust to his ‘maturing’ body. Which is why he unwisely confronts a mugger while escorting Irene to an underground parking lot in downtown Edmonton. Oh, and the mugger is armed.

Politically Detained


Across Canada people gripe about politicians, but never do anything about it. There’s a reason: they can’t. So why try? After all, how do you form a special interest group when you’re in the majority? How do you get the message to the elected if it costs votes? How do you fight apathy when so many people are too busy to care?

The Sound of Silence


Silence is the strongest ally of the pedophile. It is, in fact, his only ally. He (nearly all pedophiles are ‘he’) relies on silence. He’s helped by the fact that his sordid actions instill needless shame in young victims, an emotion that will often keep them silent forever. This is why one pedophile’s victims will often number in the hundreds--and most will never say a word. I, for more years than I care to mention, was one of them...
