Luca Veste is a writer of Italian and Liverpudlian heritage, married with two young daughters, and one of nine children. He studied psychology and criminology at university in Liverpool. He is the author of the Murphy and Rossi series, which includes DEAD GONE, THE DYING PLACE, BLOODSTREAM, and THEN SHE WAS GONE.

“It is as if the world shifted in its sleep, and one of its ideas escaped and became real.”

Years and years ago (or 2011, if you want to be picky), I started off this blog with reviews and interviews. I had no intention of writing myself and was merely interested in talking about books I liked (or in rare instances didn’t like). Fast forward a few months and I was writing short stories galore and starting a novel.


I have zero self-control.


The first book I reviewed was Deadfolk by Charlie Williams – a convers...self-control.


Thenovel.

“The first part of my plan is to write until I die.

The second part is to not die.”
Will Carver

Steve Mosby
“Have you ever had somebody grip you with a passion you never thought existed outside the fucking movies? As though they found you the most precious thing in the world? I felt it then, and couldn't believe that somebody would actually want me that much. I don't believe in Heaven as a place, but I sometimes think that if a person could write down how I felt at just that moment - if they could describe it perfectly - then that sentence would be something like Heaven to me. And as a final resting place, I'd be happy to have my name shrunk down and rested, invisibly, on the collar of the full stop at the end.”
Steve Mosby, The Third Person
