Like any other writer, I owe it to my readers to be a reader myself. In recent months, I’ve read some diverse titles, from the excellent fact-based, ‘Hash’, by Wensley Clarkson to the highly-publicised, though not so good, ‘Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus’, by John Gray. I decided that, today I would catch up with reviews for my Goodreads page.
Apart from the two aforementioned books, I’ve also read ‘Mortal Causes’, by Ian Rankin, ‘Trace Your Roots’, by Maureen Vincent-Northam, and ‘Gangs of Britain’, by Wesley Clarkson.
‘Hash’ provided me with a wonderful insight into the drugs trade, which was very useful for my crime novel, ‘Beyond The Law’. In the same way, ‘Trace Your Roots’ was an ideal book to get my head around the topic of genealogy, for my new romance, ‘Amsterdam Calling’, which is coming along very nicely, thank you.

Apart from working on my own book, I’m presently reading, ‘Until I Find You’, by John Irving. I’m well over halfway with the story. On the subject of reading, this evening I’ll be continuing with my new discipline; reading the blogs that I follow. Until next time, readers keep reading, and writers, keep reading and writing.
