Behind the story

Ask most people about the job they do and it's not unusual to find that they can wax lyrical about it. That's certainly the impression writers get when we approach professionals, whether police, army, emergency services or any others, to find out a bit about the nuts and bolts of their particular professions. They're only too keen to talk about it.

Occasionally the tables are turned and writers get asked to chip in with some background about the project they're working on. We are, of course, shy retiring types (mostly), but there aren't many of us too backward about coming forward when given the opportunity.

When Midnight Ink, my US publishers, kindly asked me to guest blog about the Gonzales & Vaslik series ('The Locker' - Jan 2016 and 'The Bid' - Jan 2017), I was only too happy to comply. To be fair, it is about the books without giving away any spoilers, and not so much my writing life. But if you're interested, you can find the full blog here.
