Killer is now available!



Killer, the 3rd and final book of my loosely-themed 'man out of prison' noir thriller trilogy is now available. The first two books in the series, Small Crimes & Pariah, were both picked by the Washington Post as best books of the year, and from the early response so far to Killer, this one is shaping up by the critics and readers to be their favorite. Here's 15 reasons why if you like crime fiction, and… Continue

Congratulations to The Book Depository

Congratulations to The Book Depository which has been awarded the 2010 Queen's Award for International Trade, with 60% of its revenue last year coming from overseas. I'm probably biased because this on line retailer has been and still is a great supporter of my crime novels and has featured them prominently on their crime…

April's Reads

April found me in a bit of a literary funk. Little writing or reading

was done while I went into the man-cave to recharge my batteries. I'm

feeling better now, and have made myself a promise that should help to

fend off future episodes.



I'm not reading any more shitty books.



I always prided myself on reading a book all the through to the end,

whether I was asked to review it or not. Bad books can teach, if only to

show what not to do, or how not to do… Continue

TELL ME A STORY

Remember when the day ended with a bedtime story?



I remember my mother reading a picture book I already knew by heart. When he was home from sea duty, my father would spin stories of his childhood in the South. Sometimes he'd recite scenes from “Gone With the Wind,” changing his voice to fit each character. Okay, that may have been a little over the top. Does an eight-year-old really need to go to sleep with Scarlett's “As God is my witness” speech ringing in her… Continue

Presenting the certificates and prizes to Young Crime Writers

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of presenting certificates to the shortlisted entrants of the Southern Area Young Crime Writers' Competition organised by the Crime Writers' Association of Great Britain and supported by the Library Service. It was so lovely to meet so many young people who enjoy writing and reading and it was an incredibly difficult task choosing a winner.

The new cover for MASUDA AFFAIR:

As you can see, the publisher didn't pick my design. I was disappointed, but on the whole, this is ok. It's Japanese art, and it doesn't conflict with the time or setting of the novel. And my name dominates! I didn't even have to ask for it. I could come to love this.

It turns out, the artist read my blog about my troubles with…
