On the last night we were invited aboard a super-yacht, which was amazing. But not as amazing as the mega super-yacht berthed further out to sea. I borrowed binoculars and saw one solitary figure on this palace of an ocean-liner: a beautiful black haired girl lounging on deck. This was the seed that would eventually grow into The Double. My family is from Glasgow, so writing about Beth, a poor nurse, was easy. I also have a Ukrainian friend who told me about the war of Transnistria (which is now, sadly, part of Moldova). so, that is how The Double came together. Brake Failure is set in the months leading up to Y2K in Kansas. I was living there at the time and everything that happened actually happened and everyone in the book existed: the Survivalists, the Evangelists that burnt Harry Potter, the bull-riders and even Mr Schoettler who used to get me up with the cock ... ??? You have to read the book. :)(less)

My Books are gonna get me Divorced

I love books. I collect them. What's wrong with that, huh? Nothing. But Hubby doesn’t agree. He’s “sick” of having to tiptoe through tottering towers of paperbacks to get from one side of the room to the other. Let me explain. I'm like cat woman. I don't mean the Cat Woman, I mean the elderly neighbour who takes in abandoned cats when nobody wants them. I'm like that with books. People who don't w Read more of this blog post »
