I probably will one day, but have not fallen prey to it in over seven years of writing, although I have only been writing full-time since 2011. I usually write every day from 11 in the morning until about 6 in the evening, although ideas pop up at all hours of the day and night.(less)

I took it from there and a thriller with a paranormal twist took shape. I'm now working on the sequel to Holiday for The Hostile. It'll be book 3 in The Hostile series. Random Bullets, my favourite book was triggered by an innocent conversation with my sister about my disinheritance by our father.

As an ex-graphic designer with twenty years experience, I enjoy designing my own covers. It's a thrill to lay out all my books, just as I used to regularly lay out books for other authors for publishers like Hodder Headline and Pinters. (less)

Hemingway, Ernest

“I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.”
Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
