Hi Alex, I can identify with your comments on Scifi and thriller/crime. I liked Asimov's novels that were both. Remember the detectives sidekick a robot? One of the books was called Caves of Steel I think.

loved it. Although I generally don't dig superhero nonsense, this was by far one of the best graphic novel to movie conversions. Keeping a keen eye on Watchmen for now.

nb: good to hook up with you. ;-)

Hi Alex
I like your movie choices. What did you think of V for Vendetta?

Dear Alex,

In reserching the " Family Tree ", the name Jenney, is found in the village of Scrooby in Nottinghamshire County. If you Google: John Jenney, the history given is amazing. In the year 1066 A.D., we fought with William at the Battle of Hastings. There may be a connection back to Mali Africa cir. 250 B.C. according to the book Africa's Glorious Legacy, library ref. ISBNO - 8094 - 9026 - 9, chapter 3 page 81. If you can connect the dots from 1066 A.D. to 250 B.C., I would appreciate hearing about what you find.

If you review MY PAGE, I think I have a fairly interesting story that you might want to write. Let me know if you're interested.

It is an honor to meet you. My son in the photo is nearly twice as tall now, and I am different but the same. My appearance is very close to that.

I am also a professional writer. When that photo was taken I had already written one novel that had to be redone, and had made a few direct sales of short fiction stories and had a few other things published for free, and the odd small time amateur or semi-pro award...Now I have a second novel, and by comparison a large amount of experience writing as freelancer. My earnings are still meagre...My professional writing life is still very much a tender young shoot that needs great protection...I have two web sites but haven't managed to get to the next level of marketing my work even without the help of a great big publisher who will financially support me
at least as well as some 'exhusbandage'.

SF: mercenaries in the future
Crime novel/general fiction: Mayor sends vigilantes after white collar cocaine dealer Tutweiler Buckhead...

Hi Alex. Nice to meet you here. Checking amazon rankings is of course a fool's game. I must be a fool though because I can't stop myself. I'm thinking of trying hypnotherapy.

Lucky for me, I found a copy of Last Light in my favourite secondhand bookshop in Notting Hill on Saturday. Try to ignore the arse-kissing-sounding statement here but, it looks pretty good and has been bumped up to the top of the TBR pile!!!

Take care,

Simon and I have always been quite competitive, certainly as kids we were. But oddly...since we've both become authors in different genres, there's a mutual support. Which is nice. I think in a way, writing has brought us much closer.

Aaarghhh....the dreaded rewrites! I'm nearly done with it....but I have to concede, despite being a pain in the ass, it makes for a much better book.

Hey yeah - your last name did sound familiar. I have a son who loves your brother's books. Guess now I will just have to try yours too.

You're on AW? Same name?
At 12:08am on December 20, 2007, Carla Harker said…
Ditto, though I guess you could say we've met in the sense that we're both members of AW.

Love your website...very nice!

I plan on getting A Thousand Suns right after new will probably be the first book I read of 08.

thank you Rick. I'm relatively new to this writing malarky - still trying to find my feet. So any positive feedback I get helps to reassure me I've not made a big bleedin' mistake jacking in my job and winging it as a writer.
