Book loving, writer, who likes to read several books at a time because she's a bit crazy like that.

Go-to authors are Stephen King, James Herbert, Terry Pratchett, Raymond Feist and Clive Barker, with Asimov, Arthur C Clarke, Robert A Heinlein and lots of others in between.

It's not so much about loving particular genres, as much as finding stories and characters to engage and resonate with - but I will always head for Horror, Thrillers, and Science Fiction, before any others (my guilty pleasure is Self-Help.)

I write dark stuff, sci-fi stuff, surreal stuff, psychological stuff and a mixture of all four.

I also write as M K Boers

I have a newsletter, which you can sign up for here.

This was a slightly different style to other books of Agatha Christie. It was written in narration form, by Hercule Poirot's sidekick Hastings - written in first person from his POV - and had more of a feel of a Sherlock Holme's book as those were wr ...more
