Interview with the Author

Q - So, what makes the Square series so special?

A - At the time I wrote Square, every week there seemed to be a story in the news about some young hooligan having murdered an innocent bystander, or someone who stood up to bullies but got punished for it. Often the deaths were by accident, or a sudden release of anger in a fit of rage. The murderers were invariably sent to prison for unbelievably short terms.

Seeing that made me angry, so I began to write a story. But as I kept writing, and the characters kept speaking to me, I realised the murderers themselves were also victims - if not of a crime, then of society. At its heart, Square is about change and redemption, and explores the question that if we are denied justice, is it right that we seek out our own?

The story became a psychological suspense/thriller with a sense of mystery and a series of twists that keep the reader guessing.

Q - What made you decide to give the first book away free?

A - I wanted to gift a free book to everyone who enjoys the horror genre. I'm a new writer and it's great knowing that someone out there is reading and enjoying my novel. There's no greater feeling than that.

By the way, there's also a special free gift at the end of the free book for mystery fans... :)

Q - Can readers get the whole series in one go?

A - Of course. I've bundled all the episodes up into one complete season at a hugely discounted rate here: http://www.amazon.com/Square-Mystery-Suspense-Complete-Season-ebook/dp/B00NA8Q0PI

I have also written many other books. Readers can check them out at my author profile on Amazon.

The author on the Ordo Lupus and the Blood Moon Prophecy series:

My own family's roots, uncovered over ten years, had led me to one Guillaume; a Chevalier (Knight) in 13th Century Languedoc, France; my earliest ancestor. Simultaneously, I had pursued a theological interest in the Cathars, first through reading a number of books about the Knights Templar and Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Codeand later, an interest in Monsegur and the Rennes-le-Chateau, near where the lost treasure of the Cathars is said to be hidden.

Around the same time I was starting this work, my interest in the paranormal became focused around reincarnation and lycanthropy (werewolves and vampires). I have always loved old Hammer Horror films and particularly the work of Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing. I have also always been interested in luck, and the constant battle between good and evil, light and dark, and yin and yang; who isn't? My own luck seems to run in phases of waves; periods of days or even weeks of good luck, followed by periods of very bad luck. I decided that my main character, as well as being physically imperfect, must have some kind of rare interaction with luck and the forces of good and evil.

From there, I developed the idea that luck might have something to do with the effect of the battle between good and evil: that in fact both Satan and God might both have one hand on the tiller of luck.

I knew the main character would be flawed physically and yet have strange psychic powers but only when I wrote a scene in a graveyard, Highgate Cemetery, did I know that he would also become a Secret Agent and later an amateur sleuth.

Yet another theme is Witchcraft. I have long been interested in the influence of Gurdjieff and Mdm. Blavatsky on modern western ideas. I also make frequent references to the Malleus Maleficarum - the witch-hunter's bible - and wicca, particularly Gardnerian wicca.

The final theme I wanted to get into my novel was the Gothic. The themes of murder, werewolves, vampires, blood, death, eroticism, sex and the paranormal are all things that I like in a novel. My influences are Kate Bush, The Mission, Lord Byron, John Keats (The Eve of St. Agnes is a particularly favourite poem of mine) and, to some extent, Tolkien's Lord of the Rings.
