I live in Southwestern British Columbia with my family. I work at my Grandfather's old rolltop desk most days for at least an hour or two instead of actually sleeping since my mind rarely leaves me alone. Unfortunately my mind also does not have an edit button so I then am doomed to spend more time filtering and editing what comes out in the middle of the night in order to make it make any kind of sense. Naturally I would like to thank my family for putting up with me. I would like to take this opportunity to send them my appreciation for not drugging me every night in order to silence the clicking of the keyboard at 2am.

I pick a genre that is the polar opposite of whatever I am writing, and then read some great stories. By seeing how other people conquer their bumps, I find it easier to conquer my own.

In an emergency, I fall back on the classic Raymond Chandler law: "When in doubt, have a man come through a door with a gun in his hand." Now you just need to figure out why he is there, what he wants, and how to avoid him using that gun. Kills the "block" every time.(less)

This book was great. I can't say enough. Captured all the best things about Poirot, read similar to a Christie novel but with a lot of Sophie Hannah's own charms. Plot was excellent. So many clues put right out where you need them - and then ignored ...more
