Kali figures in the story, too. I had a lot of fun with the novel because of a long-standing interest in Eastern religions.

I think you are correct. We take from our experiences and write about them. Thank you for your kind words. I am writing a novel called, "Biography of you and I" it is about me and my sister from birth until the day she died and the day I began to live without her. I have been writing on this novel for nearly 8 months but it's passionate, filled with so much emotion that it is hard at time to convey that in words. It's also a great therapy for me. Without her, I wouldn't be writing.

Look forward to getting to know you better.

Angel of Death, maybe? Who knows? But I like it, too. It's one of my better covers.

NC has a rich tradition in literature. Your feet are treading the creative pathways that become familiar with use. In time, readers will discover your wit and style. May your sales come soon!

Thanks for stopping by, Joan. Have you already finished the first draft of your thriller? Good luck with your writing.

Hi Joan - cool, we can be newbies together ... Declan is a pretty common name in Ireland ... actually, there's a crime writer called Declan who's picking up some really good reviews right now, Declan Hughes, he's well worth reading ... anyway, any and all tips you can give me about CrimeSpace protocol will be very much welcomed ... Cheers, Dec

Looks like you read all the right authors for a thriller background. (BTW the name Jack has actually made a comeback for heros. It lay dormant for a lot of years.)

Hi, Joan! Thank you for leaving a comment.

So, basically, you visited the south of Portugal. And now you're addicted to Port wine, which is produced, bottled and shipped in the north, where I live. :) Have you really tasted good Port? Well, it's a shame I can't send you a bottle, I don't think Customs would like that :) But if you ever come back to Portugal, I'll be happy to show you the city of Porto and the wine cellars in Gaia, on the opposite bank of the Douro river.

Also, if you'd like, join my Space Dog Network and check out a couple of movies of those locations.

Cheers!

P.S. That was actually italian wine I was drinking, Lambrusco ;)

Thanks for the comments about "The Window". Funny thing about you mentioning Ludlum, the publishers catalogue copy for the forthcoming book is something like, "Move over Jason Bourne, here's Conrad Hirst...", although typically, the similarities in this case are quite superficial.

I never actually got into Nice itself - too busy battling the builders at the ****ing villa!

... Tho I did go to Cap d'Antibes, for lunch at the Eden Roc hotel, as a self-indulgent treat on my final day, when the hammering, drilling, crashing and radio-playing got too much to bear. Insanely over-priced, but a nice, indulgent way in which to end an otherwise rugged stay.

Hi, Joan - I was so crazy about The Flanders Panel when it came out. I need to re-read it. Also loved The Shadow of the Wind which I read about a month ago. Nice to meet you and best of luck with your writing!

The arc is everything, and you're right, he does it perfectly.

Not working on anything at the moment - have just put my new book to bed (due out November) so I'm wasting time without the pleasure of knowing I should be doing something else...

Not exactly crime fiction, but Bowles' stories have the greatest 'arc' to them, don't they?
What are you working on? I will check out your bio later--I'm supposed to be working now. Thanks for the invite!

Great to see someone else giving Paul Bowles a mention.

Once upon a time, I lived in Raleigh. Enjoy the early days of writing (oh, hey, that's right--it gets even better!).

Hi Joan. Thanks for the invitation. It's always nice to meet another Jeff Deaver fan. He's a great guy.
