Something a bit more light-hearted for my blog today. As part of the blog tour for my most recent release, Dark Fragments, I was asked to write ten things that readers don't know about me. Ok, so if you happen to have been paying close attention to my writing career th...

My first book was released nearly three years ago now and since then I've sold well over 200,000 copies (thank you everyone who's bought them!). In just a few weeks my fifth book - The Red Cobra - will be out there for all the world to read (I can't wait!), with more i...
