Domestic Noir

Domestic what, you ask?  If you loved Big Little Lies, or Gone Girl, you probably have been reading it without knowing it. A crime sub-genre, on the rise thanks to best-selling phenomenon such as Girl on the Train and Gone Girl, and more recently The Couple Next Door, Domestic Noir tackles the seedy underbelly of life, where supposedly safe settings (marriage, schools, workplaces) become alien, unreliable places where danger lurks in shadows.  It is within these murky depths that people shed their skin, unleash their passions and allow themselves to…

Domestic Noir: The extraordinary in the ordinary

Domestic what, you ask?  If you loved Big Little Lies, or Gone Girl, you’ve probably been reading it without knowing it.   What is it?

More Than You Ever Needed To Know On How I Write

The Elusive Writing Process. Contemporary Romance Author Lily Malone: queen of the simile, master of the detail, has kindly tagged me to answer some questions on How I Write. And well, after stroking my ego by saying nice things about me on her blog again, I couldn’t refuse. (That’s not entirely true – who can resist a rare chance to talk about themselves?) In the year or so I’ve been fluffing around with one story, Lily (the beanie-clad beauty you see there) has managed to churn out THREE fabulous new…

Will I ever just read again?

I’m new to this gig. I am a shiny faced front-rower, wide-eyed and willing to take it all in, and I’m enjoying the ride. However, one thing I haven’t gotten used to, is that I can’t seem to just read a novel anymore without my editor cap firmly pushing on my ears.
