Firstly, I would like to thank all of my most recent followers for joining me on this exciting adventure. Your support is priceless. Welcome.

So I’m going to tell you a bit about where my inspiration came from to write my first psychological thriller. In essence, writing a novel is hard work and requires a huge amount of dedication and sacrifice. Ten chapters in and I have already stumbled across this harsh reality. I do have my family to thank for allowing me the time to spend writing.

The sudden decision to write a 70,000+ word novel must have come from somewhere, right? I don’t think the decision was based on me always wanting to write a book, it was more about me wanting to write a psychological thriller. 

The funny thing is that I would not say I am a book worm at all. Yes I have read books but I would not say that reading, until now, has been at the top of my hobby list. Now watching psychological thriller movies and TV series has.

I have recently finished the TV series ‘Luther’ which I thought was spot on. Another classic for me with Robson Green was ‘Wire in the blood’. These two psychological crime dramas are the pinnacle of what I believe to make perfect viewing.

I have also recently finished ‘The Magpies’ by Mark Edwards. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone that likes a good psychological thriller. 

So back to me. After watching these series and reading psychological thriller novels, I thought to myself, ‘hey I could do this’. So I did.

The twists and turns and unexpected endings are what makes this a unique genre which I hope to bring to life through my work. I want to leave my audience wanting more.

Until next time.

    Inspiration is something that is all around us all we have to do is look. I found this post refreshing on how you look for inspiration and where you find it the most. In my opinion, the easy part is putting words down on paper, the hard part is finding the inspiration to do so.
