I'm stoked to be the runner-up in this competition: http://www.greatstorieswithheart.com/the-sophie-king-prize-winners-announced/. My story, High On Life, will be published in the resulting anthology. Watch this space!

This is a great honour for me, because I enjoy Sophie King's books so. I got to know her with The School Run, and haven't looked back. Thank you, Sophie.

Thank you, amazon.com!

This was kind of awesome. I received an email today with my own book suggested for purchase. Yes, amazon.com, you're right. The book is definitely to my liking, LOL.

The Dying Hours - Mark Billingham

5/5 for The Dying Hours by Mark Billingham, the 11th Tom Thorne book in the series that just keeps getting better. I like that the overall plot structure is moving towards a more thinking, more feeling Thorne. Even though his actions are still reckless and childish (that's why we love him!), he seems more emotionally mature in The Dying Hours.

Add a cool idea for a serial killer, mix in the usual supporting cast of friends and colleagues. Devour in one sitting.
