I’ve known Paul Trembling for a couple of years now. He’s a talented writer who seems to be able to turn his hand to almost anything – he won the FSS Contest at least once (I owe him a winners badge) and since I started “Welcome to Wherever” he has been a regular contributor.
And yes, he has published more than one!
Here’s the List – in order of publication :-
A MURDER. A CLUE. AN OBSESSION.
Scenes of Crime Officer Marcie Kelshaw didn’t like her colleague, Ben Drummond. Nobody did, really. Nevertheless, when she stumbles across a clue to his murder, she thinks it should be followed up. Even without any official backing. Even when it strains her friendships, risks her career, and endangers her family.
The trail of clues leads to some dark and terrifying places, to a murderous climax, and the truth about Ben’s murder – which was not at all what it seemed. Along the way, she’ll open more than one can of worms. Written by a serving Scenes of Crime Officer, this story will take you into the world of ‘CSI – UK’, where every day might bring a burnt out car, a burglary, or a murder.
THIS IS CSI UK. LESS GLOSSY, MORE GRITTY.
This book is incredibly gripping, I was given it for Xmas and had read it by Boxing Day, it keeps building and building and the ending is really exciting. Good solid plot throughout, excellent character development, a thoroughly rivetting read!
Looking forward to the next one, Paul.”

“This is a cracking British crime thriller, with a believable female lead in Marcie, the SOCO who can’t seem to resist getting involved, despite being thwarted at every turn. I thoroughly enjoyed this. Good solid investigative details against a clever plot that culminates in a thrilling finale.
Well worth a read, highly recommended.”
In this world, there’s no St George.When Rimsey Stolworth is selected to be the next sacrifice to the dragon, she knows she’s in trouble. She’s the tenth to be chosen, and the other nine all died. Unpleasantly.
But she has three things in her favour – guts, brains and a book about dragons.
It could be the dragon that’s in trouble!
I liked this, it has a whimsical feel to it, yet the humour is very cleverly done so as to appear understated. Rimsey is a gutsy heroine, who uses her brains and wit rather than brawn, to thwart Dragons and Dragon Slayers alike. All three stories are easy, fun reads and could certainly be developed into a longer series of stories.”
“Sprinkled with light quirky humour, interesting characters, mild social comment and bloodthirsty dragons, I heartily recommend Paul Trembling’s “The Ways of Dragons” to anyone. Short but tremendously entertaining, at this price a snap.
Go for it.”
Rimsey is enjoying her new life as apprentice to Aldors Morrin, Master Dragon Slayer. It’s steady work – there are plenty of dragons out there. Plus which she’s learning new skills, travelling widely, and meeting some interesting people. People like Sir Marnon of the Dragon Slayer’s Guild, and the fascinating Dragon Priests. Of course, it’s not all glamour. On the down side, those interesting people are trying to kill her, and the dragons want to eat her.
But there’s one thing all of them – Dragon Slayers, Dragon Priests, and Dragons – will learn the hard way:
You don’t mess with Rimsey!
