Dear Tara,
Nice to hear from you. My forthcoming novel is a sequel to No Entry. My inspiration remains the same: to draw attention to the slaughter of animals to the point of extinction that is ongoing and to thread the needle between elephant poaching and terrorism.

Gila Green I actually have a one minute video (vlog) on writer's block. Please watch it on my youtube channel.
