Bank Holiday Shenanigans and Podcasts

The bank holiday weekend is over and in London the weather is absolutely terrible. Today, it’s pouring down with rain and it’s downright miserable but taking that to one side, my weekend was actually excellent.  On Saturday we had a gorgeous weather so I had a bbq, on Sunday I went to MCM Comic Con and yesterday I went to Wembley Stadium to watch AFC Wimbledon vs Plymouth Argyle League 1 play-off final.  Comic-Con was great fun, there were Deadpools everywhere, I nearly got knocked off by Boba Fett, I fell in love with the Delorean, came face to face with a life-size Alien and despite my protestations that I wasn’t going to buy anything I did.

As yesterday was Bank Holiday Monday, Spectrum Books released Episode 10 of their podcast. Episode 10 of the Spectrum Books Podcast features an interview with fiction writer, Rebecca Strong whose first book ‘Who is Mr.Plutin?’ was published last year. As usual, you can listen to her interview on iTunes and on the web-player.

In my podcast intro I mentioned that I had a giant canvas print of the Silver Surfer on my hallway wall. So as promised here is a photo of my hallway:



Here are my photos from Comic-Con.


Wembley Stadium.


And finally…I was interviewed by J.David Core on the Thrills and Mystery Podcast. We spoke about my writing projects, who I got to advice when writing crime fiction and I got a taste of my own medicine by answering some of the spectrum questions.

You can listen to my interview on iTunes, Youtube and download the MP3.

Happy New Year: Welcome 2016

I’m just popping in to wish you all a happy new year. We have made it to 2016.  I have a lot planned for this year and I’m looking forward to sharing the results with you and I will be keeping you updated throughout the year.

If you read my last post then you would know that I took a two month break from writing. It is definitely something that I would recommend but now I’m back and to celebrate the start of 2016 and all of the amazing things that are to come, my short story, Renata, is available for free on Amazon. So get over there now.

Renata is released!

Hello.  Yes, I have been away for a while but I am here. It’s been a busy couple of months and I’m sorry for neglecting you.  There will be a longer blog post later in the week but in the meantime here is a very short post about Renata.




Renata is a short story that originally appeared in the anthology ‘No Way Home’ but it has now been released as a stand-alone story which is available to buy now from Amazon Kindle, Kobo and iBooks for the head-spinning price of 99p. Renata is a time-travel adventure about an assassin who is sent to the past to kill his target but all is not what it seems.

Renata is the beginning of a novella, Project Kairos, which will be released in 2016. So until then, enjoy Renata and if you take a look below…yes, we have a cover reveal.

See you soon.
