Ronin Nash #1
In the Small town of Finchley, upstate New York, three bodies are discovered in an old mine. Soon after, Sheriff Doug Harrison contacts the FBI for help.
Ronin Nash is an ex-FBI special agent who wanted nothing more than to finish restoring the old family lake house. Now, Nash’s old boss wants him back and on the Finchley case.
Nash takes the job and travels to Finchley, expecting to solve the case quickly, but it turns out that things are not not as clear-cut as he thought. Someone in the small town has a secret, and they’re willing to go to any lengths to protect it.
When and where do you prefer to write?
Because I work full time and write when I can, when and where is more a question of when I have time, be it when I have a break at work or time off from work. But I have a small office at home, so I do most of my work there.
Do you need peace and quiet when you are wrting?
Absolutely, I’m too much of a nosey person; my mind wanders if there is the slightest disturbance, say the tv is on in the next room, I want to know what is happening.
If you had the chance to co-write a book. Whom would it be with?
I wouldn’t. I don’t – can’t – plot, so working with someone else would mean there would have to be some structure. I prefer the chaos of the unknown.
Say someone asks if they can use your name in a book. Would you rather be the ‘good one’ or the ‘bad one’?
I think I’d like to be the victim; the bloodier, the better, or even a cameo role, like a guy asking for the time or something.
Who would you like/have liked to interview?
I think Christopher Lee. The stories he could have told would have been amazing.
Where can I find you when you are reading?
Unfortunately, I’m a terrible reader; that is to say, I read very little. When I’m not working, I’m writing. So, I’m more an Audible person than an actual reader, the benefits of my job.
Where can I find you when you are not writing/reading?
At work or on the Xbox. But I like to travel, so I could be on a plane somewhere.
What goes through your mind when you hold your new book in your hands for the first time?
Satisfaction: It is a good feeling when you hold your book. It’s almost like that is the final phase of that journey.
How do you come up with a title for your book?
I think the story helps. It’s almost like the first taster of what is to come. You want the title to give the reader some idea of what lies within.
How do you pick a cover for your book?
Again, you want to give the reader an idea of what is coming. It’s almost like a film poster, really. You want to intrigue the reader about what is happening in the book.
