In these trying times, what the world needs most of all is love.

Failing that, how about numbing the pain with a cocktail I invented recently on a trip into the French countryside?

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

What I am reading: War and Peace

What I am Reading #2: War and Peace, by Leo Tolstoy.

"It is intimidating for a reader, let alone a writer, to approach the idea of reviewing a book that stands so preeminently in the history of modern literature as War and Peace.

Certainly when I was a child, it was regarded as the greatest of all novels, a towering achievement by the finest exponent of the form."

To read the rest of my review of War and Peace, go here.

Creating Book Covers

For the covers of my collections No Way Home and Dear Lucifer and Other Stories, I had the great fortune of working with someone who is not only a great friend but also a great designer, David Löwe, from Berlin, Germany.

To find out how David approaches design in general, and the covers for my books in particular, I caught up with him recently, asking him on how he comes up with his ideas, how he uses typography, the challenge of eBooks and the importance of animation in presenting book designs.

To read the interview, complete with illustrations, short movies and revealing insights into the creative process, go here.

You can see more of David’s work and some of what inspires him on Instagram.
