Praise for Quinn

“Quinn is a sly and irreverent yarn that continually tests and pokes fun at the endearing cast of characters. You'll roll your eyes, laugh aloud, and come to love the titular character with the world's largest chip on his shoulder. And as the madcap tale unfolds, Ric de Meulles emerges as a sharp-witted novelist.”
Ayesha Barmania, Documentary maker and radio producer
 

"I really enjoyed Quinn. If genes could talk this is how they’d sound. Ric deMeulles has done a fine job in relaying a family history in all its glory, agony and love. This is a story that drips with atmosphere. Read it, you’ll be charmed.
Martin Knight, best-selling author of Common People and Battersea Girl

Quinn the orphan grew up a scrapper and drinker  who never accepted any of the breaks life offered him. He messed up his life spectacularly, then blamed the works on Destiny and hightailed it out of town.  Eleven years later he returned with a promise to make a fresh start but soon found himself at the center of a monumental muck-up: a bombed war memorial and an abducted autistic girl. The cops are out to nail Quinn's arse to the wall, and he figures he's got to go it alone in getting out of hot water. But little does he realize that he's being helped by the least likely candidate imaginable. /<b>/<i>

Ramasseur .
available at

www.amazon.com/-/e/B001KP6GNO
 
"A brilliant novel...This is magic realism at its best."

Veronica Ross, author of Hanna B. and the Carolyn Archer mysteries

Ramasseur (def): Collector
A man finds himself on a train in the middle of the night. He does not know who he is or where he is going. But he has a hunch he has killed someone and is going back to the scene of the crime. When he arrives he meets a mysterious man who tells him stories about his past. But there aren't enough pieces, and the nameless man begins to look for more. As this collector, this Ramasseur, wanders through the misty night, getting closer to discovering who he's killed, he gathers shards of memory, hoping to find enough pieces to make a whole man. 

A magically-realistic novel in the form of a story-sequence, Ramasseur is a series of exquisitely crafted, highly readable tales that conspires to draw readers into the puzzle of memory and identity. While these gripping little tales of beasts, prophets and saints are set in a remote mining town, deMeulles' sense of place draws to mind David Adams Richards's Miramichi  and Joyce's Dublin.  . .
