Interview by Fiona McVie

I’ve been interviewed by Fiona McVie about my life as a writer. And here’s me with my friend and fellow Crime Wave Press owner Hans Kemp.

Fiona: What book are you reading now?

Just finished The Butterfly by James M Cain, about a man sleeping with his daughter. Not perhaps in the league as his other work, but still gripping. Also just read Hollywood by Charles Bukowski which I loved for its happy tone. America can be so great. And I just finished Because the Night by James Elroy which I disliked profoundly, because Elroy moves in a personal never-world of right wing vigilantism, anger towards minorities and loathing towards free thinkers that I don’t share. Yes, he writes well, but so do lots of other people who aren’t bigoted.
