The greatest thing to happen to suburbia since the Road Widening Scheme of 1976.
From the heart of suburbia Joseph faces a daunting task: to save the future of mankind. Rarely are self-certified wasters called to the battle between good and evil. It’s the job of Jack Connolly, failed television celebrity turned religious messiah to convince Joseph otherwise. As the past, present and future converge, an important question becomes paramount: Is the oncoming apocalypse even real? Add in a new girlfriend who thinks Joseph is someone else entirely and a housemate with an unhealthy Roger Moore obsession and it all starts to get a bit tricky.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
There is the saying that professional authors write what people buy, indie authors write what they enjoy. I am firmly placed in the latter camp. As such it is often difficult to actually place what genre my novels belong to. On a most basic level it is contemporary but with strong elements of humor mixed with a dose of realism. Hopefully it ties into something that people enjoy. My first novel The Day Jesus Rode Into Croydon has been described as funny, heart warming, heart breaking, uncoventional, unpredictable.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Never give up. The world needs creativity. Also develop a thick skin. There will be people who will love your work, others who love the bits that you didn’t think like as much. And there are also people who will hate it. At times it is difficult to understand why not every single person in the world loves your work. There is no such thing as a bad review. They are either people who don’t get what you are writing, in which case they aren’t the audience you are targeting anyway. Take everything on board. Above all else, write. The world needs creativity
Kirk St Moritz lives on a small island in the English Channel where he divides his time between writing and claiming to run a detective agency with a number of 1980’s television cops. The Day Jesus Rode Into Croydon is his first novel with the next one (Kayfabe Sunset) in the pipeline once he discovers how to overcome being the worlds slowest writer.
I have always written but it was only until I got older that I felt that I had the maturity and eye for detail that is essential for publishing. Otherwise if I had published at 15 years old the world would have been subjected to tales of buxom warrior princesses battling intergalactic warlords. Nowadays when I write and look back on the book there are still scenes that make me laugh so if I still think it’s funny then there must be other readers out there that enjoy the same.
