After a long, nerve-racking wait, I was thrilled to find a fantastic MIRO review in the October 9th issue of Publishers Weekly. Having numbed myself in preparation to read said review, I find a side-effect in that it has taken me a few weeks to absorb the news and appropriately celebrate this important occasion. So here I am, finally shrug...

This week, to celebrate World Peace & Harmony Day (I made that up), MIRO will be enrolled in a Kindle Countdown Deal.

There’s nothing like unboxing your first batch of proofs. Especially when you consider it’s the climactic moment after a long, difficult period ruled by one overriding impulse: to tear it all up and set it on fire. (Which leads me to wonder whether this ‘burning’ desire has anything to do with fire playing such a huge role in MIRO’s plot,...

I like to say that my debut novel, MIRO, is a nine-year labour of love. What I really mean is that it was a nine-year labour of love, hate, discovery, angst and crippling doubt.
