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)
