This unique novel captures the Trade Me phenomenon in a humorous and dramatic style. Currently at screenplay assessment with Outrageous Fortune producer James Griffin.

Contains sex scenes

First Edition signed and inscribed copies are available direct to Trade Me users from the author.
The reviewers say Trade Me-The Novel lives up to its dustjacket blurb, so here it is:

Unique, topical blast of fiction, captures the buzz of the internet traders' world.

Pure Zeitgeist entertainment, great characters and hilarious action.

'The hype is true - this is a fun, fast-paced novel...cleverly done and truly hilarious' (David Reed, Advocate).

'Industrial spies, false indentities, a gay galah, anxiety over Trade Me protocol and loads of sex...taps into a modern phenomenon...a fast-paced novel with well-developed plot that builds towards a chaotic climax' (Mark Peters, Dominion Post).

The plot: cristal66 buys a Fred Perry jacket online. It has special significance to industrial spies who want it back. cristal66 and other innocent traders get caught up in messy auctions and offline skullduggery. The TV shows try to keep up with this cyberworld and a hip-hop crew use the attention to launch a global webcam performance with a stolen galah as the star. It all comes to a hilarious conclusion.

Available in bookstores and libraries, and the publishers offer it direct from the author online with personal inscription. Continues to be the subject of blog and message board comment. ( )
