Welcome to My World!

I realise that I am one of the last authors to enter the 20th Century (let alone the 21st) and establish a website. I know, I know… Everyone has been urging me on to do so for years now. But, you know how things go, writing, living and all that!

Anyway, here it is.

It doesn’t mean I haven’t been active previously and I’ve in fact been blogging regularly as a guest in a variety of other venues who were kind enough to host me.

I will keep on posting all my guested blogs here, and in addition will in all likelihood begin more reviewing here on books, music and films, and whatever actually catches my fancy. How regular, I still don’t know.

I get so many books in the post and am unable to cover them all at lovereading.co.uk, where I do regular round-ups of new crime, SF and erotica titles, and am sad to see how little coverage these genres get in the press and magazines these days. I reviewed crime for TIME OUT and then THE GUARDIAN for almost 20 years, so I hope my sometimes pinches of salt here will be welcomed and seen as gently authoritative (as well as opinionated…). Time will tell.

And, so that this section of the website is not seen as initially a tad anaemic, here are a variety of blogs I’ve penned over the past year or so, mostly at mulhollandbooks.com who give me a carte blanche of sorts to pontificate on matters criminal and literary, as well as the sometimes repetitive 21 pieces I squeezed out of my tortured psyche to promote the publication of my latest novel, EKATERINA AND THE NIGHT.

Comments are always most welcome and, if I’m in the right mood, I might even initiate a dialogue, or then again I might not.

I can of course also be seen on Facebook, with regular updates on what I’m doing, thinking, feeling or digesting culturally.

And as so many Hollywood stars said ‘let’s get this show on the road…’
