Interviews

I've added an Interviews page to Jamesstoakes.com

It's a section where I ask questions of characters in A Twist of Shadow and they react. It gives some insight into their attitudes and personality.

I had fun creating them, I hope you will have fun reading them. Read more of this blog post »

I propose conscription for those who wish to fight on behalf of Antifa

Since they're obviously so restless and ready to take up arms, they must be ready for a tour of duty where they can serve their country better than their predecessors, who are all obviously baby killers and fascists, right?

Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
