Books as Friends

Books as Friends

I think of the relationship between a book and a reader like a key and a lock. Some books (e.g., the Harry Potter series) have keys that opens a great many locks. Other books have elaborate, mysterious keys that open fewer locks, but readers who meet such books often feel themselves very lucky. Maybe they waited for years for such a key. The books in my life fall into four categories...

Where Do Characters in Books Come From?

Where Do Characters in Books Come From?

As we try to create the imaginary worlds of our books, to be believable we have to rely on reality for inspiration. I use the places I’ve lived in and visited in South America as settings in my South American Mystery novels. These novels have to be populated with people, both the central characters like detectives Roger Bowman and Suzanne Foster, and all of the rest of the people they will meet as they investigate the murder or murders. We quickly encounter a problem of how to make these...

Planning A Fantasy Epic

Planning A Fantasy Epic

As I finally hit the publishing button on the first four books of Dirt and lean back to relax for a couple of minutes I have to admit that I am more than slightly amazed that I have managed to get this far. When I think about it, I have been working on this project for the last year and it has consumed me to the point that I go to bed dreaming of characters, wishing my dragons actually existed and have sleepless nights worrying about whether I have got dates right, travel times right...

The Vineyard

The Vineyard

My family has been producing one of the finest wines from Carmargue region for several generations. Although we are a very small vineyard many have said our grapes are the sweetest and our wine has an indefinable “something”. Of course the distinctive color known as “grey of grey” contributes to the uniqueness of our wine. What very few people have had the opportunity to sample is a special wine grown from select grapes. Behind the old and crumbling home where my ancestors first lived...

The Sea of Forever

The Sea of Forever

The battle had been won before the war was over. Both sides had lost. Both sides had won. No one lived to talk about it. No one cared to talk about it. No one cared. That was the problem. None of it made sense. And yet it had happened. The majority of the population of Earth had been wiped out within a few minutes, the rest perished in the Nuclear Winter that followed. Not from Atomic Bombs, but from all the volcanic ash that had filled the atmosphere when every single volcano on the planet...

HAPPINESS LIES WITHIN

HAPPINESS LIES WITHIN

Once upon a time, there was a miserable man. Yes, he was miserable, totally, utterly miserable. Nothing he had was of any good, as it seemed to him. He was healthy, but not good looking. He had a job, but his earning was not up to his deserving. He had a home, but it was too small. He had a wife, but she could never sympathize with him. He had two kids, and he was sure both would turn out to be useless idiots. In short, life had given him nothing good, and he was truly miserable. So miserable...

Under the Sun by Lottie Moggach – review

23 July 2017 | 6:00 am Books | The Guardian

A body on the beach promises much in this expat thriller set in Spain, but too much detail spoils the plotThe merits of Moggach’s second novel are also the source of its problems. Detailed, and populated with a credible cast, description quickly morphs into exhaustive listing, and characters become tired and cliche-ridden.From the outside Anna looks to be living the life in Spain, refurbishing a finca with her artist boyfriend. Cue the cad dumping her, and Anna being thrown into emotional...

So many authors past and present have been drawn to (and have drawn on) the county that it is arguably one of the most fertile places in Britain for writers to live, visit or set their work in.Both a heaven of beauty and inspiration and a hell of damp and dullness, Devon was...

22 July 2017 | 5:00 am Books | The Guardian

The American author on the latest outrage from Donald Trump, the frustrations of starting a novel, and his double life as a lawyer and novelistThe simple truth, I’m pleased to acknowledge, is that most days writing makes me happy. Usually what’s ahead of me flashes through my mind not long after waking, igniting a triumphal fantasy: I will imagine epically, think precisely and, like an underwater swimmer with elastic lungs, breaststroke through the murk until I unseal the buried...
