I don’t know about other writers, but I always dread being asked what I do for a living. Thankfully, I work as a copywriter too, which tends to be an acceptable answer. But utter the word ‘author’ and you get all sorts of questions, which are often difficult to answer.
Obviously, I write about ghosts a fair old bit. So, it’s unsurprising that I often get asked about the supernatural, and whether I believe in it or not. Normally at that point I start shuffling awkwardly on the spot and trying to change the subject – because the honest answer is… I’m not sure!
Few subjects get ghost-hunters quite as revved up as the Devil. There’s something about Satan himself that makes even sceptical folk a little nervy… and unsurprisingly so. After all, we’re not just talking low level badness here, we’re talking Premier League evil!
It’s that time again – I am officially editing, and editing hard. Although the second Dr Ribero book isn’t out until early next year, it’s amazing just how much work goes into making it as good as possible for publication, and the editing process takes longer than you might imagine.
