Exciting times – The Hanged Man and the Fortune Teller is close to being released. It’s a departure from the Dr Ribero series (though don’t worry – I’m still working on the next one of those, which should be coming out next year). As such, I thought I’d give it a bit of a formal introduction.

Soon, I’ll be heading off to the tip of Cornwall for a holiday. It’s close by, which is handy, as it makes exploring this craggy, isolated county nice and easy.

With a landscape like that, it’s small wonder that Cornwall’s history is steeped in mysterious goings-on and ghostly events. What’s interesting is that plenty of them centre around the sea.

I’ve developed an obsession with podcasts recently. Mostly, I listen to them while I’m out on a run; and my particular tastes tend to veer towards the macabre, the intriguing and the literary.

I was listening to Mark Kermode’s excellent Kermode on Film podcast this morning. The film being discussed was The Shining – a film I’ve always regarded as a bit of a horror classic.

I remember an article I read, years ago, about Damon Albarn (lead singer of Blur / mastermind behind Gorillaz etc.) and his obsession with disused fairgrounds.

I am a chronic flitter. I love working on several different creative projects at once, as it keeps things interesting. Over the last two and a half years, I’ve been working on a children’s book – a ‘choose your own journey’ style novel, to be precise.
