Cerise Noire The latest novel by A.J. Sendall

Cerise Noire was published today. It's been a while since you've heard from me, in fact it's been a long while since anyone has heard from me. The reason is that I've been head down writing another book which I sincerely hope you'll read and enjoy. Cerise Noire is a mystery/suspense novel that will keep you guessing until the last few pages.Read the blurb here.In the past couple of months I've re-branded The Sydney Quartet with new covers and some slight textural changes…

Update – Sydney Underworld Quartet: Book Three

I’m currently working on the third book of the "In The Sydney Underworld" series, and would like to invite you all to visit my website and sign up for an ARC, if interested. The other two books in the series, Heather, and Flank Street were released in August 2014, and May 2015 respectively. Each book is stand-alone. They share locations and a few characters, and can be read in any order. Does that make it a series?

Kindle Countdown – Flank Street at 99 cents!

I didn’t set out to write about Micky, or Carol come to that. The rain was falling steadily, running down the small, below ground-level window, which is the only source of natural light in the boiler-room where I write. For some obscure reason it reminded me of a rain-soaked street in Sydney, Australia; a street I’ve walked down many times, both wet and dry. As I held that image in the back of my eyelids, a man appeared. Yellow streetlights reflected from the wet tarmac; he walked in the shadow of the plane trees, pulling his hood up against the unrelenting rain. He stopped, leaned against a tree, and waited. Right at that moment, I knew what I had to do.

Whistleblower

Whistleblower - would you have what it takes? Whistleblower (whistle-blower or whistle blower)  a person who exposes misconduct, alleged dishonest or illegal activity occurring in an organization.

Micky

Micky DeWitt is the main character and narrator from Flank Street. Micky is entirely fictitious, or as far as a character can be. When it comes to creating characters, we all draw on people who've crossed our paths, or influenced us in one way or another. I don't know who Micky is, or where he came from, but it started like this— Late one night, I was looking down a wet, tree-lined street, and spotted Micky walking in the shadows. After a while,…

Flank Street – The Sydney Quartet

I took a different approach to writing Flank Street than I did to writing other books. I wrote the last page first, called it a prologue, and then worked out how the MC would get there. It was fun and the writing went fast. It's written in first person from the view of Micky DeWitt, a shiftless criminal. Micky arrives in Sydney by boat, broke and on the lookout for opportunity. After taking a job as barman in a Kings Cross pub, he’s eventually…

You have to live it up before you can write it down.

"Write what you know." unknown "You have to live it up before you can write it down." Robin Moore. Those two lines are well known, but sometimes not so well understood. Write what you know is about more than remembering places and event. It is about recalling your emotions and reactions, the reactions and words of others, taking your life experiences and grafting them into your writing. After three decades of 'living it up', it is now time for me to write it down. Not as…
