John    Bentley John Bentley's blog:

Q. So John why this book? The Royal Secret. I understand it’s your first novel?

A. It’s about Francis Bacon. An Elizabethan. In another name the most famous of all Englishmen, but in his own name known by few. I wanted to know why – and when I did – to tell other people.


Q. But why a novel. Why not...

I started writing my book, I’m Never Ill, in November 2012. It was just meant to be a short read for brain injury sufferers to help ease the long, dreary hours in hospital. However, as time went on it became bigger and bigger, until I realised that it was going to be a more substantial read. I’m... Read more of this blog post »

Why do some children and teenagers run away from home? That question has been circling round my mind as I read Oliver Twist. What drives young people to risk everything by running away to an uncertain future where they probably will end up living on the streets in a big city?

I'll caution that it's not for everyone. Please read the warning on the blurb. Sure it's vague, but it'll give you a heads up. I'd say it's good to go into this book blind, but only if you have no triggers. If you do, then check the reviews. Also, if you like your heroines v... Read more of this blog post »
