What's your current novel about? Tell us!

I'm working on a kid-friendly murder mystery set in a girl's boarding school in Kerry, Ireland. The current title is Murder In The Limelight but that'll probably change.

Western fantasy. Basically, the Civil War included a secret magic battle that backfired and created monsters which inhabit the West.

The main WIP is a legal thriller about a guy called Dave. He’s a recovered alcoholic, a terrible lawyer, and a good husband and father whose life unravels when he gets into a car accident with a homeless pedestrian called Roy and a dog called Dog.

I wish I had more time to focus on it, but you lot are a constant distraction.

I'm writing the second novel to The Chronciles of Terlan, which will focus on the characters of Nomo and Jo, who will be introduced in the first novel. It will focus on their journey together to gather allies and their unique relationship. And somehow I have to sneak in all the other story threads I have planned ><

You’ve got a strong hook there.

Although that’s more than can be said for the character. :D

Don't encourage him :-)

On a tangent: It sparked a NiaD thought. A theme for the future could centre around diversity. I suspect that would challenge many of us – in a good way.

Historical novel. It covers a large area of one country and would be interesting for youth (I hope so).
