Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout with some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.”
― George Orwell
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.
