Research often takes writers to very strange places. This is especially the case if you’re writing about the supernatural, I find. Recently, I’ve been delving deep into Dartmoor folklore and uncovered a very peculiar story indeed.
I love Bristol. It’s a sprawling city (the south-west’s biggest by a long way), but it’s got a definite vibe that’s difficult to resist. The famous graffiti (popularised by Banksy – and no, before you ask, it’s not me or any of my family members) covers many of the buildings, giving it a real edgy atmosphere.
I’m not a natural athlete. Generally speaking, a quick jog up a flight of stairs will leave me out of breath. So, when the opportunity came up to sign myself up for Macmillan Cancer Support’s Might Hike, I thought…well, why not!
I had some exciting news recently. The third Dr Ribero book (The Case of the Hidden Daemon) is going to be released a lot earlier than I thought it would be. Try four months, to be precise.
It was great to hear (especially as it coincides with Halloween, mwah-ha-ha). However, it squeezes the deadline for the fourth book. And my word, the fourth book is taking me some time to write!
