Kenn Gordon: Altered Perceptions
I grew up in the Highlands of Scotland. I became a musician whilst still at school. Then I made my first musical instrument, at the age of 13. At the age of 18, I joined the Royal Air Force. I served for 9 years and worked at numerous secret establishments. During my military career, I continued to play in bands and to write music. When I left the RAF, I still played music, forming my own bands and recording over 32 Albums, under various names. I also created Gordon Guitars, making high end and bespoke guitars. As I grew older, I looked for a new avenue for my creative juices. It is because of this, that I have decided to become a writer. The first novel entitled 'Altered Perceptions' is the first part of a Trilogy featuring. Andy McPhee and Team Seven, of the SIS Black Door Operations. SIS (Secret Intelligence Service) do exist, as do Black Door Ops. What goes on at CDE (Chemical Defence Establishment) Porton Down, is part factual and part fiction. Although this story is fiction, or you could say factional. The Enriched Uranium and Plutonium did go missing from FBR (Fast Breeder Reactor) Dounreay. The Secret Royal Navy program, the Vulcan Project, did take place between the RN (Royal Navy) and Rolls Royce. There were two major accidents at FBR Dounreay, and they were covered up. There still, to this day, remains two miles of off-limit shoreline. Where pieces of Plutonium are being found, on the beach near Dounreay. Much of what happened in this first book, did happen in real life. Some is of course pure fiction. Real names have been changed. Many of the places exist. Gruinard Island was used by the British Government, to test out bacteriological and viral spores of anthrax. The island remained uninhabitable for almost 50 years. The UK has signed up to the Geneva Convention, that bans the use of chemical and biological warfare. Yet it continues to make these banned items. The UK is not alone in this. The USA, France, Belgium, Germany along with many countries in the west. Yet we first world countries, condemn the third world countries, who try to make them. Worse still, in some cases, we even supply these countries, with the parts required to make these weapons of mass destruction. That is a fact.
