Great to hear from you and thanks for the compliments on the audio books. They were narrated by Steve Cumyn, a really talented actor. There are no current plans to continue the series at the moment, but then writers are often the last to be told! I was fortunate to have these two titles narrated, as they were the first audio books my publisher (Dundurn) ever did. Where did you discover the series? By the way, I note you are a wattpad user. The fourth book in my other mystery series (comic, very different from the Dan Sharp books) is free there. Title: BON TON ROULET. Cheers! Jeff(less)

(Note to self: Why do I insist on putting it in capital letters, giving it far more importance than it deserves?) Putting anything at all on the page, no matter how uninspired it seems, can be the impetus to get past the block. If you keep going, you will eventually arrive at a more inspired place. Being excited about what you're working on is usually the best way to avoid it altogether, however, so make sure you have several projects on the go at once. That way you can pick and choose whatever makes your mind catch fire. Barring any of that, get out of your milieu and wait for something to happen. Travel is a sure way to find fresh inspiration.(less)

Whether you're a Rufus fan or you simply love good music, then go to see Hadrian. The music is gorgeous and the story compelling. But Wainwright the composer is no Puccini/Lloyd-Webber wannabe. Nor is he the Rufus Wainwrig... Read more of this blog post »
