Apple Audio 'A Deadly Trade'

Very pleased to announce that Apple have released the audio version of 'A Deadly Trade'. It features Ben Onwukwe and his deliciously deadly voice captures my hitman, Hex, perfectly.

A Deadly Trade


Final Target

Apple Audio has released the audio version of 'Final Target' with Ben Onwukwe narrating Hex. To be honest, I couldn't think of a better actor to play him. Ben's voice is dark, deadly and dangerous - just perfect for sparring with MI5 intelligence officer, Inger McCallen. #AppleBooks

Author/Agent Successes

Obtaining agent representation is harder than ever but three authors, who I worked with on their stories, have defied the odds and done just that. In no particular order, Daniel Scanlan is now represented by Ian Drury at Sheil Land Associates, Rob Burnett is represented by Jemima Forrester at David Higham Associates and Charlotte Owen is represented by Nicola Barr at The Bent Agency. Congratulations to all and best of luck with their books and careers.

Unlikely Crime Solving Partners and Moral Ambiguity

"Morally ambiguous characters are the toughest to create and write. I’m not talking about main protagonists with flaws and failings that make them human, (who cares for a perfect player?) but those characters who, from most perspectives, sound more like primary antagonists and thereby run the risk of alienating readers. Very few will happily follow a main man or woman with distinctly iffy morals for hundreds of pages, not least because it makes the climactic scene when good guy versus bad guy (simplistically put, I realise) tricky.

If you want to watch a fabulous documentary about George Eliot's life, tune in to BBC 4 at 9pm on Sunday 10th November. Eliot wasn't only a great writer, she was a woman who defied convention.

This experimental film is made up of a diverse cast of people from different backgrounds and I was honoured to be invited to take part.

Her Sister's Secret

Familiy provides a rich seam for writers to mine and I didn't want to hold back with this story.  Just about everyone has something to hide.  Part whodunnit and part whydunnit, it was intriguing to write.  I hope my enthusiasm shines through the narrative...
