Being my own boss. (But don’t tell the wife that.)

Accepting that you can’t please everyone.
4. If you weren’t a writer, what job would you be doing now?
I’d be living a life of leisure. Well, no one can stop me dreaming.

If only! Perhaps I’ll have somewhere in the warm sun with a view of the sea one day.
6. Which writers to you most admire and why?
7. If you could choose a different genre to write in for just one book – what would it be and why?
Something uplifting and life affirming; something that expounds hope and optimism. Something to remind me and others of life’s positives.
8. Why psychological thrillers – what attracts you to the genre?
I guess, given my career, psychological thrillers chose me.
9. What are your future writing plans?
I’m writing a third dark psychological thriller at the moment, and hope to have it finished by September. Once it’s finished, I’ll go from there.
