A fan of writing since he could first hold a crayon, R Jackson-Lawrence has had a tortuous path before reaching this point in his life. In between working in a supermarket, care home and hospital, and having a family, it took nearly twenty years for his first book to be finished.

The first three books in the Benjamin Knight series are now available, as well as the eight book series PUPS (the Adventures of a 3rd Grade Werewolf) aimed at younger readers.

The first in his next series (X-Calibur) has just been released, titled The Return.

I have had days where the words refuse to flow, and times when I have read part of what I have written and deleted large chunks because it just isn't working, but a total block? I don't think that's happened (yet!).
I plan my stories, I know what pivotal scenes are in part 2 or 3 or 4, so I just have to get there. If I have a day where I can't get the words out, I go for a walk or a ride on my bike, or occasionally spend a few hours on the playstation and that seems to help!(less)
R. Jackson-Lawrence I get to sit in front of a computer every day and make stuff up? To me, that's pretty fantastic!

Okay, so I have completed making an audiobook! I have spent the last 2 weeks or so narrating the first in my X-Calibur series and I have produced just over 6 hours of narration.

It was a lot more difficult than I expected.

I thought the main difficulty would be using the software to make the audio meet the ACX requirements, but as it turns out that was the easy part. The most difficult part was t... Read more of this blog post »

Good book, a little slow to start but soon picks up. I thought the ending a bit rushed and a little too convenient but overall I enjoyed it and I am going to read the next one (or at least listen to it as I did the first one).
