Truth be told, I'm a little jealous --and nervous about you reading my work now. Gulp.

Great bio - I'm even keener to start reading "The Safe Word" now. Won't be long until lunchtime....

Will do - are they open to submissions?

Thanks for the kind comment, Karen.

I only make furniture for myself (and friends) these days - my tax standing in France means that I can only work with intellectual property, not as an artisan. If I wanted to sell furniture here I'd have to register on a whole new tax bracket - too complicated, and expensive. 

And you are on. I'll give "The Safe Word" a review. Here's the proviso - I'll never write a nasty review, (except for a Bestseller - if it deserves one), but I will write a fair one. 

And another thing, I really, really hope I like your work. I'll start reading at lunchtime (in about an hour). 

Are you a self-publisher like me?

I just followed you on Twitter - I'm on Twitter as KerryJDonovan and my Facebook page is:


I don't have an author website yet (working on it), but my furniture business website (which I now only do in the summer is: http://kjdfurnituredesign.yolasite.com/

Hey, the neurobiology will help if you want to write a police procedural and the English Lit will help all around. Nice one.

Market research is related to the IT Industry - I do the back office stuff; database design, data analysis, public domain research. - Sorry this reply's in parts, but I'm new to this Crimespace format. Hope you're receiving this okay. :)

Just bought A Safe Word and will start reading it on my kindle right away. :)

Oh - my PhD was in Sports & Exercise Physiology, specialising in Respiratory Physiology, (helps my crime scene writing). 

Congrats on the book - looking forward to reading it.
