More About the Author

I have one simple method of writing. I set out with the basic idea, the main characters and an exciting opening scene in my mind. Then I start to write and see what happens. The plot is totally flexible. I don't know the ending or the middle. I write my characters into situations and then watch how they react and get out of them. That way, rather than knowing where I'm headed and force my characters to go there, they decide. For me, the end result is more natural and unforced. I don't know who will survive and who will not, whether it will be happy or sad. Also, it's great fun for me, like the reader, to find out what's going to happen. It encourages me to keep thinking and writing because I really want to learn the ending.

I used to be told off at school for daydreaming. Now, as a fiction writer, I make my living from it! Turning daydreams into stories began while I was studying chemistry at university. It allowed me to be anyone, go anywhere and do anything. In my imagination, I am a devious murderer, a great musician, the best footballer, the world's leading detective, a very bright girl, and many other characters.

I write only about topics that make me passionate. That might be because I really like or really loathe them. I am inspired by things I like (science, medicine, nature, music, football, etc), and angered by things I dislike (the corrupting effect of money and politics, racism, bullying, cruelty, etc). I often get ideas by looking through newspapers and science magazines. There's a weird and wonderful - and sometimes horrible - world out there with plenty of inspiration for a writer.

Format: Paperback
In this book i find it amazing as you get closer to the real Brett Lawless and how he copes with the death of his girlfriend, Zoe, in Secrets of the dead. Yet you also find out more about Clare Tilley, the other star in the book yet was quite a quiet character in book 1. How will the pair get on? Read to find out , you wont regret it.

Format: Paperback
After Lawless' first case in Secrets of the Dead he now takes over fully. This time working with Clare Tilley they are asked to investigate a mysterious death. The pathologist doesn't know if it was murder or not, but there is no evident cause of death, but the victim had a lot of problems, none causing the death. Investigating further they find a network of problems.

In this Clare Tilley is very much more a character than in Secrets. The plot is good. The science-y elements are ever present and enjoyable. I really have no complaints, brilliantly written and a very good story
