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.

Flank Street – The Sydney Quartet: Book Two

Flank Street was released today!   From the first word to the first sale has taken a bit over six months.

However, those long cold months of being house-bound with a log fire and pots of tea, were good for the writing process. I took…

Noir

Noir and neo-noir fiction and movies. Noir was an easy choice for today's letter 'N' for the April A to Z Challenge. Noir is one of my favourite genres in both books and movies. The core of popular noir stems from authors such as Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain - "The Postman Always Rings Twice", Patricia Highsmith - "The Talented Mr. Ripley" (1955), and David Goodis - "Down There" (1956), which is a moody, intense novel of a musician who's fallen on hard times,…

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,…
