How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
It is difficult as I have to keep the reader guessing while providing clues all the time, and provide a satisfying denouement at the end. A bit like detective story writing, but much, much more fun. Just try one and see!
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Never give up, if, in the early hours of dawn you can lie in bed with all your ghosts surrounding you and frightening the life out of you, and still believe you have enough talent as a writer to make it!
An author who has had many stories published in the women’s weekly magazines and literary journals, John was drawn to writing at an early age. At one time in his teenage years he was reading one book a day—the subject didn’t matter, but it needed to grab his interest in the first couple of pages, or he would abandon it. And this is the rule he has since applied to all his writing, believing that if you haven’t grabbed the reader straight away, you are not writing well enough.. After graduating with an Honors Degree in History he spent many years in academic publishing, at last leaving to pursue his long-held dream of becoming a writer. “Easily among the very best new writers we have seen”, “fresh and original”, “creates life-like characters—maybe too life-like” (whatever that means!), are some of the comments made by literary reviewers and consultants about his work. His favorite band is The Moody Blues.
