Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I have written six books. Four are satires. The other two are set in concentration camps in 1930’s Germany. As far as I know no one else has done this.
I live in a hole in the ground in Nottingham, UK. I am currently trying to upsize to a cardboard box under a railway bridge. There is an advantage compared to living in a house. I don’t live next door to a serial killer. Okay, there are a few weirdos but they are not armed.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The Hitler Affair. Er…Hitler. This will be out shortly. The previous one is The Himmler Contract.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
No. Unless you count writing while halfway up a chimney.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
None. Though Film Noir has.
What are you working on now?
Trying to sell books. Will begin a serious fiction book about the Ivory Trade shortly.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I haven’t found one yet.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Make sure you can write. There are too many who can’t clogging up sales channels.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Don’t pour boiling tar on your baby’s head.
What are you reading now?
What’s next for you as a writer?
To keep writing. I can’t help it.
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
Can’t say. There are too many I like. But I would not bring anything by Jeffery Archer. Unless it was to start a fire.
