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.
