Five-star Inspiration

Six years ago, I went on holiday to southern Italy. I thought I was going to get away from it all, but I ended up being inspired to write my first novel.

Find out how a strange occurrence in a five-star hotel and a chance encounter with a mysterious Russian led to the genesis of my new thriller Escape.

The Way Home

Dear reader, I have written a story-by-story explanation of the inspiration and background to all six pieces included in my collection No Way Home.

It was very enjoyable to look back at the stories in that way, as although the book was published in December and I spent the preceding two years working on it, I haven’t taken the opportunity to think in a structured way about how the pieces came about and what I wanted to do in putting them together.

So I hope you find it interesting, and feel free to ask me any questions about those or any other stories.

How Dear Lucifer Began

I have just written a piece on the page for my collection Dear Lucifer and Other Stories on what inspired the pieces and how they came to be published in that form.

I hope you find it interesting! I shall be adding pieces on the origins of No Way Home and Escape in the coming days…
