Hey!

It's funny you should mention that! I've just finished a full length novel (Wye) based on the dystopian journal format of X. I'm trying to find a publisher for it atm so it should hopefully appear at some point!

Hey Chris, thanks for the question!

My least favourite character I've come up with so far is probably the villainous Asquith (from Unwoven and Torn). He's not the main antagonist in either book but he's probably my most despicable creation simply because he takes so much pleasure from other people's suffering. Combined with that, he's methodical and condescending to the point of exasperation (the next thing to come out of your mouth will X or I will kill Y), and he's eerily cheerful through everything. I'm almost ashamed I invented him, almost!(less)

Anchor Leg by Jack Croxall
"Action packed scifi

Really liked this book. Fast paced , good character development. Satisfying ending. Realistic scifi. Didn't have to suspend belief. Read in one sitting but did have off from work!"
X by Jack Croxall
"X is more of the beginning of an idea than a fully fleshed out story. Apparently it was used as the basis for novella Wye when the author wrote it. I read them out of order but it did not really matter."

In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

'Yeah,' Luca countered, 'maybe I want to be had for breakfast.”
Sharon Sant, The Young Moon
