ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Jarl Alexandre Alé de Basseville of Normandy, descendant of the 1st King Harald of Norway, was born in Bordeaux on July 8th, 1970, the land of Aliénor of Aquitaine. He is one of the last direct descendants of the Viking and Norman Kings’ lineage.

Ale de Basseville portraitkl 1Through his great grandfather who created the first trading company in Luxemburg in 1927, to his grandfather who managed the Caltex oil industry, Alexandre Alé de Basseville sees the important role of energy as the cornerstone for an economically strong and sustainable Europe. Born into the oil business, he is passionate about it and has built strong relationships with royal families and corporate oil leaders in the Middle East.

Alexandre Alé de Basseville grew up among artists, philosophers, politicians, men and women of great influence and developed a taste for entrepreneurship. Eager for new experiences and knowledge, he carried out businesses in his own way.

His passion for Arts flourished at the age of 15, when he joined the world of contemporary art and honed his skills in photography, painting, filmography and sculpture under the advice of Andy Warhol. After studying at the La Scuola di Arte in Milan, he came to know Lucchi Renato Chiesa, known as “the last surrealist.” This relationship led to great opportunities, such as being represented by an international agent, recognition from the Metropolitan Museum of New York, and work with legendary fashion and design magazines. Later, he will serve as creative director for several major French and international brands.

While enjoying a successful career in the arts, he has turned to support the banking business narrowly connected to the oil business, holding a legal banking license and working in the financial sectors with interests in foreign currencies, online banking platforms, and private banking.
Alexandre Alé de Basseville has successfully brought the concept of the first entertainment fund backed by the support of AAA banking. His passion for expanding Internet commerce is associated with the first streaming company in America.

NGOs and associations play an important part in his life. At the age of 19, he joined in the fight against AIDS by making art that represented the violence of AIDS. His mobilization continues today around another equally important cause: providing work and education to girls and women in emerging countries. Living with a rare genetic disease, Alexandre Alé de Basseville is disabled and understands the need to fight for the construction of special infrastructures to improve the life and integration of disabled people.

From this inspired past and his passion for a better future, Alexandre Alé de Basseville decided to become politically involved in Europe to serve culture and tradition for which he considers himself as a charismatic and legitimate representative

Now available at Editions Dedicaces: « Good Vibrations », by CB Barrie

good-vibrations_frontISBN : 978-1-77076-618-1
Format : 206 pages, 5.5 x 8.5 inches
Interior Ink : Black & white
Binding : Perfect-bound Paperback

This story parodies the illogical and wholly unreasonable aspects of the way the law works. How its quest for ‘justice’ often leads to injustice, and how its rigid and inflexible approach to ‘due process’ makes a mockery of fairness, and hands down bizarre judgements.  The insistence that everything must be resolved in court under the public gaze, creates ridiculous situations that do nothing to dignify the rightness of the justice system. On the contrary, it shames it.

Just such a story is that of Edmund Lincoln.

It’s the fourth time ram raiders have wrecked Edmund Lincoln’s nationally famous audio and HI-Fi business, and he’s facing ruin. Exorbitant and restricted insurance, and the totally inept police investigations, mean he has little chance of recovering anything lost or receiving adequate recompense.

After the fourth break in his senior manager Mark Stepleford, painfully restores the business but another disaster strikes when a psychotic customer is thought to be shoplifting. He is challenged and draws a knife to fend off the shop staff.  Mark, realising the man is completely out of control, stabs him with a needle test probe. The man is dead on arrival at the hospital.

Mark and the two sales staff are arrested on charges of manslaughter. But notwithstanding the Crown Prosecution’s insistence on due process, the jury refuses to convict.

For a while life and business return to normal but then they are notified that their rather limited insurance is being withdrawn.  It means that the whole trading operation is now severely compromised. To protect the shop in the absence of insurance Mark designs a hyper–powerful sonic system that creates a deep sense of fear in intruders. He adds an extremely powerful low frequency sound field that causes the intruder real physical distress. Just after Christmas, during the shop’s week long shutdown, they are called by the police. The shop has been hit. They are horrified to learn that on inspection the police have found five dead bodies in the shop – all of them having suffered agonising deaths. Edmund Lincoln is arrested for murder.  He is outraged – thus begins his fight against the CPS and the whole apparatus of the legal process.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

cb-barrieI trained first in applied physics (BSc) followed later by post-graduate studies in economic & industrial history (MPhil) business studies (DipBA) and later a PhD in metrology. Following a successful career in strategic research/technology and administration, I began to parallel academic authorship with writing popular science and biographical articles for various technical and innovation magazines.

Apart from a fascination with inventors, inventions and new technologies I also enjoy writing ‘off the beaten track’ fiction, particularly when it leaves the reader slightly breathless. My publication record covers 11 Books (academic, fiction and humour) under various names and pseudonyms along with 68 research papers and umpteen popular science and innovation articles.
