Having seven published novels already under his belt, Brown is currently working on the third instalment of the Prince of The City series.

It depends on the individual, but some writers strive to make every word a work of art. I take a different view. I like to finish my first draft (even if I'm not completely satisfied with it), then go about shaping and improving the work through as many rewrites as I can stand.(less)

“In a way I loved Sean from the day I first laid eyes on him. It wasn't instantaneous mind you, it didn't hit me like a thunderbolt and when you get to know me better, you'll know that I'm never likely to go all goggle eyed and weak at the knees. No it was more like a serum that had been injected into my bloodstream. The point of the needle so small, I didn't even feel it break my skin, but it was there all the same”
