Are you reading any interesting books at the moment? Bill Bryson (one of my literary heros) and Stephen King’s Under the Dome.
What contributes to making a writer successful? I think a lot of it is luck. You need a good book, a good cover and a good synopsis, but if you don’t have a huge advertising budget then when it comes to getting noticed, it’s all about luck.
Do you have any advice for writers? Never give up. A lot of people say that and it does become annoying to hear, but it’s true. Also, don’t listen to the literary agents. If you like the book and you really believe in it, publish it yourself. My first book was rejected by a dozen agents, a couple of months later (after I had given up and then decided that it was too good to leave) I published it myself and sold 10k copies in the first month.
What do you do to unwind and relax? Whiskey and television. I prefer the good kinds of both, but I’ll accept cheap and nasty.
What dreams have been realized as a result of your writing? I’ve realized just what it feels like to know that whatever I write will be read. Which has not always been the case.
Evergreen is the peaceful, idyllic home for a bustling traveler community. It is home to Patrick Ryan, the figurehead of the community; home to Aidan McCleary, Patrick’s mentor and friend; home to scores of youngsters and generations of families. But now Evergreen is also home to a sadistic serial killer, someone who is targeting the youngsters of this once peaceful community.
They know the killer lives among them, know that one of their own is tearing this small community apart. They want to deal with it themselves, to track down the killer and deliver their own justice, but can they find him before he rips their home apart?
Evergreen is a serial killer thriller/whodunnit with a macabre and sinister slant. A book not for the faint hearted.
