Qn 1: Can you tell us more about your book What is it about?
It’s inspired by a guy I once saw sitting by a row of cash machines and wondered, ‘What if he could hear the people’s thoughts, or get with PIN?” The character and stories developed into a reclusive blind Falkland war veteran, surviving on the streets and finally making his way back home and into more trouble!
In this fourth book in the series, he is on the cusp of settling down into a life he could only dream about when he is asked to pay back a favour, ignoring all advice, he risks losing everything to help out a friend.
Qn 2: Out of all the books in the world, and all the authors, which are your favourite and why?
Robert Galbraith’s ‘Cormoran strike’ series seems to resonate with me, balancing adventure, intrigue and mystery.
Qn 3: What guidance would you offer to someone new, or trying to enhance their writing?
I found this quote when I started writing and it’s so true :
“You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence.” ― Octavia E. Butler.
