Iain McLaughlin             

I am a professional writer, editor, journalist and proof reader, who has worked for numerous companies across most mediums. I have worked on some of the biggest franchises in the UK, and I also work for small publishers.

I have written for many mediums - TV, radio, novels, comics, short stories and I have written for many genres - science fiction, crime, horror, comedy and romance among them. I'm experienced in working with existing IPs, having worked on a number of franchised characters and shows like Doctor Who, James Bond, Dennis & Gnasher, Blake's 7, Wallace & Gromit and Sherlock Holmes. I have also written completely original works like the novel Movie Star and the ongoing radio mystery series, Kerides the Thinker. I was editor of the Beano for a time, which was both challenging and huge fun. I edited Beano, BeanoMAX, Beano.com, the annual and worked on editing 104 scripts for the TV series, was script consultant on the Fox Kids Beano radio series and was involved with the early stages of the Bananaman film's development. Before that I was deputy editor of the Dandy for 5 years, which was (mostly) great fun. I am currently Editor in Chief of Thebes Publishing, which means I edit some of the books, but mostly drink tea while other people do the hard work. Just don't tell anyone at Thebes that. Clients include: CBBC, Big Finish Productions, Red Kyte Productions, Imagination Theater, DC Thomson, Telos Publishing, Obverse Books, Candy Jar Publishing, Waverly Books and Scholastic.

Looking at her timeline, Erimem is intrigued by evidence that at some point in her life, she visits the Nazi-besieged city of Stalingrad in 1942. Against the advice of her friends, Erimem travels back through time to discover what happened in Russia during those terrible times in the war.

Erimem’s friends all have the same question - why is she suddenly so obsessed with visiting Stalingrad at this most brutal time?

With German forces relentlessly bombarding the city, the people are freezing and starving... and worse, there are stories of a demon or a beast, stalking the ruined streets of Stalingrad, devouring anyone it meets.

When Erimem arrives she finds a city under attack both from the invading German armies and from a dark force in the shadows.


What do you get when you put a Scotsman and a French Girl on air? Two hours of fun! Thank you to Iain McLaughlin for joining me on the show in his Kilt at 3 AM UK time. You have to love a guy that is a night owl, drinks coffee and has an accent. By the way checkout the great Scottish song I played after we found out the truth about Scotsmen and their kilts. How's that for a teaser....
