Busy summer!

I haven't written a blog post in over six weeks, mainly due to the huge volume of work I've been doing. Since my last post, I've completed the draft of the fourth novel in the Ethan Warner series, "BEAST", and handed it in to my editor. I've also been hard at work since on not one but two new projects, while also plotting the fifth novel in the Ethan Warner series. More on the proposed blog series for this soon, as I'm meeting with my publisher next week.

It's a lot of fun juggling so many projects around, making things work and creating new characters and stories. I was also recently asked by the Crime Writer's Association, of which I'm a member, to attend a library event in Feltham, London with two other fast rising stars of crime fiction: Tom Wood, and Stav Sherez, on August 2nd. The event was great, with a hugely enthusiastic audience and library staff, plenty of questions and anwers and a really good atmosphere.

Right now, I'm head down and writing approximately 3,000 words per day on the latest new project while planning the others during evenings and weekends. This is the life of a full-time writer, and it really is worth it!
