I go and do something else for a while - read, see a movie, go for a walk. A long walk is a really good way to clear the cobwebs.

My motto: you can fix everything in the next draft.(less)

A 2021 project

Happy New Year! 

I hope you all had a safe and relatively enjoyable one. Fingers crossed the vaccines are rolled out quickly enough for us all to leave the house a little more this year.


I had a reasonably productive 2020, despite everything, and there will be news about my 2021 book soon. It's not out until the autumn, but the Hunted paperback will be out in early March

As always, I'll be writ

Mason Cross, The Killing Season

“The most important quality in my line of work is adaptability. Control what you can, but don't expect to control everything. Make plans, but don't be surprised when you have to tear them up and start from scratch. Don't waste time on wishing things were different, deal with them as they are. pg 235”
