Brownout – 666 a current and sexy story about the Philippines and why the world doesn’t tick

Chris Dawson, “The Teacher’s Pet” and me

I knew Chris Dawson, who has been in the headlines lately and has been arrested in connection with a cold case probable murder nearly 37 years ago. This case, along tales of schoolgirl sex, is the subject of Hedley Thomas’ famous podcast, The Teacher’s Pet, that has about 30 million listeners. I taught at Cromer High School between 1979 and 1981 and was personally acquainted with many of the protagonists in this saga.

My novel, “Brownout- 666: or the real meaning of the swastika,” is largely based on real events and, while only making one indirect reference to Cromer High, explores many of the themes about sexuality that play out in the Teacher’s Pet.
