Dave Watson – Interview

DaveToday we talk to Dave Watson.

Q) Tell us something about yourself.

I was born in Heston in 1956. In those days it was a small village near Heathrow Airport. Today, it’s part of a much larger town. I’ve always enjoyed writing and sport and have taken part in two London Marathons. My first novel, titled Full Circle was the first Inspector Wesley novel and was published in September 2011.

Although at present I’m apart-time author, my ambition is become a full-time author.

Q) Tell us about your latest book. Why do you think the readers will like it?

Murder at Melcham Hall tells the story of a recent murder which readers soon become aware is related to things that happened centuries ago. The setting is a stately home set in a sleepy English village.

If anyone enjoys a British detective novel then they will love this.

Q) How did you come up with the title of the book?

I created the name Melcham Hall for the stately home in the book and simply thought the title had a good feel.

Q) What kind of research did you do for your book?

I spent time looking into details of the local area and the type of property where the murder is set just to get a feel for the pace of the story and a visualisation of the setting.

Q) Which of the Characters in your book are your favourites and why?

As always I love Inspector Wesley. He’s a down to earth dogged British policeman and someone who cares greatly for his colleagues. He will take time out to roll a cigarette and weigh up a situation. I guess he’s methodical and analytical like me.

Q) How did you formulate this character? Is it based on someone you know?

I think Inspector Wesley is a mixture of some of the characters I’ve read over the years. As mentioned, I think his character is pretty similar to mine and I guess he’s the kind of methodical detective that I like to watch on TV.

Q) Every Author has a distinct writing style. How would you describe your style and how do you think you came to form it?

It’s difficult to describe my writing style suffice to say I always stick to writing short chapters. It’s something I prefer if I’m reading someone else’s book. I hate nothing more than to have to put a book down half way through a chapter.

Q) How long have you been working on this book and what inspired you to write it?

I spent six months writing the book. I was inspired by the feedback I received from Tor Murders which was published in July 2012.

Q) When did you start writing and when did you realize you want to become an Author?

I used to enjoy writing short stories for my children when they were young and have always had the urge to write. I finally sat down to write my first novel two years ago.

Q) Who are some of the Authors you like and how do you think their work inspired you?

My favourite author has to be Agatha Christie and I confess to having read all of her novels. Other authors I enjoy are Kate Ellis and  Jacqueline Winspear to name but two. All three authors have such distinctive ways of writing, compelling the reader to turn over the next page. The shear enjoyment of reading anything written by these people is enough to inspire anyone to write.

Q) What do you think is the most difficult part about writing and publishing a novel?

For me, the biggest factor has been finding time to write. Being in full-time employment I only get the opportunity to write in the evenings and at weekends. With regards to publishing, well we all know how difficult it is to find a publisher. I have been extremely fortunate in being accepted by Mirador Publishing who have helped me enormously since my first novel.

Q) What is some advice you will like to give to people trying to write and get their stories published?

Always write at the time that’s best for you, obviously difficult when one is working full time, but set aside time and stick to it. As far as the publishing side goes, then my advice is to shop around. Reach out to as many agents and publishers as you can but make sure they work in the same genre as your work.

Q) Tell us something about what you are working on or about some of your future projects.

I have just self-published a short story titled Smudge Adventures.’ The story relates to the adventures of two cats as they explore the world around them. It’s available from Amazon in ebook format and all proceeds go to charity.

I’m currently working on the fourth Inspector Wesley novel which I hope to get published early in 2014.

Q) From amongst all the novels ever published if you had to write any one, which one would it be and why?

I don’t think I can pick just one but it would certainly be written by Agatha Christie.

Q) If you had to convince someone to read your book in 5 lines what would they be?

If you like to read a British detective murder mystery set in the heart of the English countryside then Murder at Melcham Hall will take you into  the sleepy village of Shepton Mallet where past history catches up with the current tenants of Melcham Hall.

Marie Drake – Interview

mariedrakeauthorphotoToday we speak to Marie Drake

Q) Tell us something about yourself.

I am a mom, first and foremost, through and through. My children are my world. I devoted more than ten years providing home daycare, because I love children, and because it allowed me to be at home with my children as they grew up.

Q) Tell us about your latest book. Why do you think the readers will like it?

My book is called Three Rules. I think readers will like it because it touches on a real subject, and it is full of surprises.

Q) How did you come up with the title of the book?

The book is titled after a quote within the book , “I have learned three rules in my life: 1.) The most dangerous people in the world are not always strangers. 2.) The scariest things imaginable are not those that can kill you, but those you can live through. And probably the most prominent: 3.) The most horrible possibility is not what could happen to you, but what you could become – I became a killer.”

Q) What kind of research did you do for your book?

Well, the story is based in a small town, on a lake, so I didn’t have to stretch my imagination very far on that. I drew on my own personal life experiences when describing the feelings and emotions of the main character. I survived some things in my childhood that scarred and changed who I was forever. It affected my outlook on life, on the world, and affected my decisions and the way I lived until I was nearly thirty years old. I often wonder how different I would be if they never happened. I have also been a caregiver for children who suffered abuse, which I can’t go into detail about for privacy reasons.

Q) Which of the Characters in your book are your favourites and why?

My favorite character in the book would be  Joey Bishop, because he is a true friend to the main character, Hope, and always sets his own feelings aside to make sure she’s okay.

Q) How did you formulate this character? Is it based on someone you know?

No, it isn’t. I formulated the character because I felt  Hope needed someone like him, in order to stay sane, to stay connected to life. I think anyone in her situation would need someone like that.

Q) Every Author has a distinct writing style. How would you describe your style and how do you think you came to form it?

I think I try to tell the story from within the main character. I want to describe feelings and situations with words and actions to give the reader the best understanding possible without revealing too many secrets. I want the reader to feel something.

Q) How long have you been working on this book and what inspired you to write it?

I thought about writing this book for years — the setting, the characters, and so forth.  It sat in the corner of my mind, and I put small pieces of it together at a time. I didn’t have the time to actually put any of it on paper, however, until my kids grew a little older. I have seen and experienced many sad and painful things in my own experience and while being  a foster parent which inspired the story.

Q) When did you start writing and when did you realize you want to become an Author?

The first time I remember writing a story was in third grade. When the teacher handed it back to me, she said, “Very well done,” and discussed my story with me. I was hooked.

Q) Who are some of the Authors you like and how do you think their work inspired you?

I do enjoy works by Mary Higgins Clark, and James Patterson and  although I would not  presume to  compare my  writing to these authors, that is the type of suspense I hope to attain in my work.

Q) What do you think is the most difficult part about writing and publishing a novel?

Strangely, the hardest part for me is letting others read what I write. Writing it is thrilling, exciting; I am passionate about it. It wasn’t until recently my husband convinced me I should let other people read it. To me, it is very personal. It is a piece of me, and when others read it, it doesn’t belong to just me anymore. But, it’s also the best thing about writing and publishing a novel also. The sheer gratification of a stranger reading your work and being touched by it, affected by it, is awesome.

Q) What is some advice you will like to give to people trying to write and get their stories published?

Don’t give up. Life gets in the way; it may slow you down but it can’t stop you if you keep moving toward your goals, even if it is an inch at a time. It can be challenging, but follow your dreams.

Q) Tell us something about what you are working on or about some of your future projects.

I am currently working on another suspense novel, called Don’t Cry For Me  that I hope to release late in 2014. It is about a boy who loses his mother to a disease, and also loses his baby brother to a tragic accident, and then because of his actions and reactions to the situation is placed in foster care. But as usual, there is more going on behind the scenes than is revealed in the beginning of the novel, and hopefully it will be an emotional ride to the finish.

Q) From amongst all the novels ever published if you had to write any one, which one would it be and why?

If I had to write any novel ever published, I believe I would choose Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton, just because it has always been my favorite book.

Q) If you had to convince someone to read your book in 5 lines what would they be?

The book touches on a real subject of abuse, but in a delicate manner.

The story contains friendship, loyalty, suspense, fear,  love, mystery, and even a dash of romance.

You will be engaged in one twist, only to be turned in a different direction.

You will feel like you really know the characters in the book, then you’ll wonder if you do.

Most readers have stated the end was totally unpredictable, and the most thrilling part of the book.

Lady Justice Takes A C.R.A.P. City Retiree Action Patrol – Robert Thornhill

Lady justice 1Title : Lady Justice Takes A C.R.A.P. : City Retiree Action Patrol

Author : Robert Thornhill

ISBN-10: 1617393827

ISBN-13 : 978-1617393822

Paperback : 240 pages

The Plot :

The first book of  the Lady Justice Series by Robert Thornhill, Lady Justice Takes A C.R.A.P. City Retiree Action Patrol, is a humorous mystery about Walt Williams, a crime fighting senior citizen.

At the ripe old age of 65, Walt is having a difficult time dealing with retirement. What does he do to cope with it? He decides to become a cop, something he had always dreamed of. But soon he realizes chasing dreams is not all that easy but it sure is a fun ride. After working really hard for it Walt manages to join to police force. Not everyone is happy about it but he manages to get in. Now he has to prove himself right and all the naysayers wrong.

Without too much help from his ageing limbs to chase around the bad guys, Walt has to rely on his wit and wisdom to bring the perps of Kansas city to justice. It’s a bumpy but often hilarious ride to see Walt and his partner, Ox, find very unorthodox ways of bringing criminals to justice. And they have plenty of help from their senior friends. We meet the sixty-five-year-old Willie, the former con man who has given up his shady ways to be Walt’s friend and sidekick, and Mary, the seventy-five-year-old apartment manager with a thirty-six-inch baseball bat, amazing words of wisdom from eighty-five-year-old Professor and Maggie, Walt’s sweetheart.

The book is a fast read with small byte size chapters full of action, adventure and humour. Walt and his senior set try and solve cases ranging from shop lifters, havoc creators, senior muggers to Rapists and counterfeit notes by the mob. The characters are endearing and the plot lines are simple. The book is full of witty jokes and I loved it. A quick read, I would surely recommend for a couple of laughs with mystery.

Everyone Worth Knowing – Lauren Weisberger

everyone-worth-knowingTitle : Everyone Worth Knowing

Author : Lauren Weisberger

ISBN-10: 1416543007

ISBN-13 : 978-1416543008

Paperback : 448 pages

The Plot :

In her second book, Lauren Weisberger introduces us to twenty seven year ole Bette Robinson. She works at an investment banking firm, UBS, since she graduated from Emory University. Five years into the job she realises she is not cut out for the 80 hour work weeks and her tiny cubicle. On an impulse and shaken by the news that her best friend Penelope is engaged to a guy none in their friends circle approve of, she quits her job.

With little interest to start working again she takes her time looking for a new job, all the while fielding the “What are you going to do with your life?” calls from her parents. Her nationally syndicated entertainment journalist uncle then comes to her rescue and introduces her to event planner extraordinaire, Kelly. Suddenly she finds herself working for Kelly at Kelly & Co., one of Manhattans elite events planning firm. She soon realizes that the core skill required for the job is to see and be seen at the hottest places in town.

Her job takes her to the most exclusive of clubs, parties and VIP rooms full of socialites and celebrities. She enters the realm of New York’s chic, party-hopping elite. Thereafter she becomes the regular subject of gossip columns, linking her to famous playboy Phillip Weston. She realizes she is attracted to him and he provides a great boost to her career but at the same time she is drawn to Sammy.

Sammy works as a bouncer at Bungalow 8, who aspires to be a chef and has a lot in common with Bette. They make a connection on a trip to Istanbul and he also manages to impress her parents. But he, too, is tied to a wealthy socialite, and dreams of escaping the high life to open a small restaurant. Having a job that pays her to party was hardly something anyone could complain about but all the while she finds herself becoming this whole new person that she can barely recognize. She starts growing distant from her former life and friends and eventually realizes that she has a choice to make. She must choose between the person she once was and the one she is becoming.

Overall the book was slow and dull. It lacked the wit and likability of ‘Devil Wears Prada’. It is an okay read and the story is nothing new. The characters are forgettable and the book overall is unimpressive. It is just another tale of a girl on the fringe who is sucked into the New York party circuit and eventually resents it. I would call it a book “Not worth reading”.

The Mountain Of Light – Indu Sundaresan

Mountain of Light-CoverTitle : The Mountain Of Light

Author : Indu Sundaresan

ISBN-10: 1451643519

ISBN-13 : 978-1451643510

Paperback : 352 pages

The Plot :

In her new book ‘The Mountain Of Light’, author Indu Sundaresan takes us through a journey following the Kohinoor diamond across continents. It is work of historic fiction all about the 186 carat diamond and how it changed hands. The word Koh-i-Noor, coined by the Persian king Babur, means ‘The Mountain Of Light’ and that is how the book gets its title.

For those who are unaware, the Kohinoor diamond is now a 106 carat diamond, and held the title of the world’s largest diamond for many years.  The first recorded mention of the diamond can be found in the memoirs of Mughal Emperor Babur, who received it from a Hindu ruler he had defeated. After the Mughals, it slipped out of India and was with Nadir Shah for a while.  Later it was held by King of Afghanistan Shah Shuja and subsequently by Maharajah Ranjit Singh of the Punjab Empire.   Finally it landed in England to be presented to Queen Victoria. Currently in possession of Queen Elizabeth of England, the Kohinoor diamond is displayed at the Tower of England in London. It has travelled through time and around the world, changing hands from one ruler to another in Persia, Afghanistan, India and England for centuries.

The book starts in 1871, in the beautiful Shalimar Gardens of the mansion of Punjab’s Maharaja Ranjit Singh. Here, the Afghan king Shah Shuja and his wife Wafa Begum are held captive after having lost their throne and taking refuge in the court of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. They, Wafa Begum specifically, are in possession of the opulent diamond. They had promised the Maharaja that they would hand over the diamond to him if he helped them escape and win back the Afghan throne. After having successfully escaped from Afghanistan, Shah Suja and Wafa Begum refuse to give up the Diamond to Ranjit Singh as they are sure that once they hand over the diamond to Ranjit Singh, he will surely execute them as he would have nothing further to gain from them. They hold on to the diamond as the only ray of hope for their survival.

After years of keeping them captive in hopes of owning the Koh-i-Noor Magaraja Ranjit Singh of the Punjab finally realises that he needs to take more drastic measures if he wants to get hold of the diamond. He cuts off their food and water supply and starves them. Eventually they yield and hand over the diamond to the Maharaja. As soon as he is in possession of the Diamond he sets Shah Shuja and Wafa Begum free.

The story then leaps many years, to when Maharaja Ranjit Singh, still in possession of the Koh-i-Noor, is now old and weary. The British have made their entry into India under the name of the East India Company and have hopes to annex India from the control of Ranjit Singh and have their sovereign, Queen Victoria, rule over the vast empire. After his death, four of his sons kill each other in wars to take control of the mighty empire. His only remaining heir is the six year old prince Dalip Singh. With the help of his mother Jindan Kaur and her staff they manage to put him on the throne as the Emperor of the Punjab Empire.

In the meanwhile the British sign a treaty with Dalip Singh and his court, to help protect his position as regent of the Punjab Empire, in hopes that they will be able to slowly gain control and push him out of power. They start to take account of all the wealth in the Toshakhana of the king and start compiling lists of items of value that will soon belong to the Treasury of the East India Company. During this process, the East India Company and the British manage to take possession of the Koh-i-Noor diamond.

Soon Lord Dalhousie, comes to India as the Governor General and he plans to present the Koh-i-Noor to his sovereign, Queen Victoria, as a gift from India.  Under the utmost secrecy, two high ranking British officers plan to take the Diamond to England on board the SS Indus. On the way to England, the diamond is stolen and later found.

The story ends many years later where we see Dalip Singh is old and settled in Paris and  he shares his diaries with his daughter that he maintained from when he was sixteen and came to England. In his diaries he talks about how much his life changed since he left Lahore and how he longed to possess the Koh-i-Noor diamond.

Overall the book is an amazing read that transports the reader into a totally different world. The book reflects the opulence of Indian Kings, life in their zenanas, the entry of the British into India, life in England and the majestic scenes in Queen Victoria’s palaces. It documents how the Koh-i-Noor travelled from country to country, King to King, empire to empire and finally settling down in the hands of the British monarchs, where it still lies today, captive in the Tower of London.

The book conveys wonderfully how the urge to own this diamond was so overwhelming that even the dreadful curse supposedly carried by it was conveniently overlooked. Indu Sundaresan uses beautiful imagery to show a glimpse of the life led by the kings in Punjab and the beauty of the Koh-i-Noor. The amount of research that must have gone into writing this beautiful book is truly mind boggling. After reading ‘The Mountain Of Light’ I am filled with the desire to see the Koh-i-Noor once again, and look into its facets and try and see the history it has left behind. A definite must read for historic fiction lovers.

ISBN-10: 0446552437

ISBN-13 : 978-0446552448

Paperback : 256 pages

The Plot :

Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang is the third book by comedienne and late night E! TV show Chelsea Lately host Chelsea Handler. It is a collection of funny stories and essays from her life. Similar to her other books, it is just a collection of funny incidents that occurred in her life. The book includes the following stories:

1)    The Feeling – This is a story of how Chelsea got in touch with herself (quite literally).

2)    When Life Hands You Lemons, Squeeze Them Into Your Vodka – An account of how Chelsea manages to get a Cabbage Patch Kid, in order to fit in better with her peers.

3)    Grey Gardens – Even Chelsea Handler feels the blues.

4)    Dudley – This one is how the prank that Chelsea played on her then boyfriend, Ted, came to be.

10) Chunk – Chelsea rescues a dog and names him Chunk.

11) Deep Thoughts By Chelsea Handler – A collection of open ended lies that Chelsea Handler told the people around her.

Over all it is a funny book that you can enjoy only if you keep your brains aside. It is a short read and sometimes you just need a little splash of stupidity in your life. I enjoyed the 4 or so hours it took me to read the book. Although this one was not as good as her first two books I still would recommend it to people looking for a little silliness in their lives. Trademarked with Chelsea Handler’s dry sense of humour and witty comebacks it makes for a truly fun read.
