I am really looking forward to seeing Knives Out next week. It's all purely for research purposes, you see...
My fourth novel, Hell Lane, will be a (hopefully) fun "Rural Noir" detective story written as an homage to two of my favourite authors: Agatha Christie and Conan Doyle (Sherlock Holmes).
Hell lane will have a charismatic London detective, a gloomy vicarage and an ensemble of characters that will include a creepy butler, an airhead actress and a writer fighting writer's block - and many more... All stuck in a Dorset village by the coast in the 1940s with nothing to do!
What can possibly go wrong...
I haven't read a book since September, which is unheard of, but today, I have started Joanne Harris's Sleep, Pale Sister, a dark Victorian Gothic tale - just what I like.
I will be going back to The Right Place, my third novel, at the end of the month, once I am free again. My intention is to publish by the end of 2021 and to crack on with my Agatha Christie/Sherlock Holmes-inspired rural noir detective novel Hell Lane.
I think therefore I write.
