Simon Kettlwell - DDF jacket copy

Dead Dog Floating is the new novel, released in September 2015 with Peach Publishing. It is already receiving 4/5 star reviews.

A down-to-earth story of a young boy weighed down with lies to cover family secrets, of a feckless father, and a mother unable to confront the truth and the shame, that in 1972, ordinary people struggling to make a better life, simply can’t have the man of ‘the house sneaking away like a thief in the night”.

‘Great story telling’

‘Derek Jackson doesn’t know how cool he is!’


-I love Derek Jackson and his take on life’
Bread for the Bourgeoisie
