Q – Why did you decide to write a crime thriller?

A – I’m a big fan of thriller and conspiracy books and films and I find myself naturally drawn to writers such as Robert Ludlum and John Grisham. I love the journey, the twists and the turns, not knowing and then the reveal.

Q – How long did it take you to write Killing the Dead?

A – I first got the idea back in 2006, but I was too involved in running and then eventually selling a business to be able to totally immerse myself into this project. Once the business was sold, I began writing Killing the Dead as well as a series of short film scripts.

Q – Your story contains some very violent scenes. Where does that come from and does it bother you?

A – The short answer is no, it doesn’t bother me because it’s not gratuitous, it’s absolutely necessary for the storyline. Where does it come from? Everyone has a dark side.

Q – Is there another book in you?

A – I hope so. In fact I’m working on something now. It’s fast, hard hitting and very topical.
