I've always liked writing, started when I was a kid, then I forgot. I know that sounds weird, but I sort of lost my way; spent time building a career, working hard. Suddenly I realise that the years have flown by... then I remember what I wanted to do, I mean really wanted to do. But even then I procrastinated! Take my first book, Dominant Species, I first got the idea for this story probably 10 years ago... and you know what? It's a good idea too! So I wrote it as a screenplay, (it would make a great film) then, finally (on the recommendation of my wife and kids) as a book. I won't tell you how long it took or, how long it's been waiting to be published... but I realised something today - it doesn't matter. I've done it now and it's available to buy.
It's a New Year and although I don't do New Year resolutions, one thing’s for sure, my next book 'Retribution' will be ready this summer. So if I have any advice, it's this: if there's something you want to do... and I mean really want to do - well to just do it! And do it now. Tomorrow can take a long time coming.
My best regards
