I can generally be found staring at a screen from behind a keyboard, either writing, coding or attempting to read all of the interesting parts of the internet before someone adds a new bit.

I'm addicted to stories in all forms, especially books and film, and enjoy spending as much time as possible in a world other than this one.

You can find out more on my website.

My ideas comes from a range of sources, even other books. A lot seem to stem from the news.

If I find something interesting, I make a note and will play about with how it can be developed. This can happen over a very long period (years).

Sometimes ideas are a spin on something, flipping an existing plot, or finding a new take.

I'm drawn to lesser known subjects, it's interesting to research and (I like to think) adds to a reader's enjoyment, plus it may teach them something too.(less)

I am Not a Book Pirate

Over the past few weeks I have received a few offers, both via Twitter and private messages on the Kindle Users Forum, along the lines of:


I see you’re interested in a free copy of my book, did you find it? If not, I’m happy to send you one.


I assumed they were spam and deleted or ignored them.


Then I was accused of stealing by an author I’d never heard of because of the supposed posts I’d made a

I really enjoyed the first novel in this series — Hidden Empire — so it made sense to pick up the next book.

Looking back at my notes on the first book, I think the structure of jumping between characters was the same, b

This was another I probably wouldn’t have picked up except it was on a deal.

I am also mindful I seem to get stuck in fantasy and sci-fi a fair bit and do try to branch out.

This is a gritty police procedural, something the Brits seems to do fairly wel

This isn’t the sort of book I’d normally pick up in audio format, as it’s so short (at four hours). Even in paperback it would be a slim thing coming in at only 224 pages. It does make it quick to get through though.

The length of this was a consideration in my decision — 48 hours is a lot of listening time — but also knowing what I was getting played a part — this following my enjoyment of the previous book.

It took me a while to get through this, I just wasn’t in the mood at times and it wasn’t so good that I found myself drawn in.

The book is also split into many small annecdotes rather than larger, more in-depth stories. It feels more like a series of

This was one of those where I kept seeing good reviews of it. A totally different contemporary thriller. And it had been a while since I had read something not set it in a completely fantastic realm.

I elected to listen to this, in part, due to the length. The 1,000+ pages turn into around 45 hours of audio to work through. And this is just the first book of the trilogy, so it’s somewhat immense.

As with a story that runs to this length, we end up
