I’m currently working on a
suspense novel– hopefully the suspense in my upcoming book will drive the
narrative and will keep you the reader interested. Writing suspense is new for
me, so I hope I meet your expectations.
In my first book, Beyond the
Pale, I tried to explore psychological tension; how do the characters react
with one another and how do they find a solution? I really enjoyed exploring
the psychological tension when I threw a spanner in the works there, and
although there is a sequel I’m really exited for the moment to explore other
genres so a sequel will have to wait.
One of my inspirations for my
latest book is Agatha Christie; few writers have ever shaped the genre and
influenced crime fiction like she has. The British author managed to pen 67
novels over some 50 years. Her plotting was ingenious and even in modern day
readers remain captivated by her mysteries.
My erotic fantasy short story
started during a stressful time in my life and it has an over-the-top sexual taste.
It took the pressure off starting a somewhat daunting task of opening a
business on the Costa Blanca and it still makes me laugh today how way back
then how my youthful mind was full of hormone induced thoughts! I guess it’s
not something I can apologise for as it was part of growing up, maturing, a
moment in my life. Shocking I know, who would have thought I could harbour such
elaborate fantasises? You’ve just got to be honest with yourself!
I hope you feel confident in the
stories you have to tell and never apologise – just write.
All the best,
