A Luca Mystery #1
Peter hated him…
…and the murder was brutal.
Could he really be the killer?
Peter served his country in Afghanistan. The brain injury was severe. To survive in the hospital, he kept his focus on the one thing that mattered, Mary. What he found back home, broke him.
Mary was with Billy, the bully who terrorized his childhood.
When the police arrested him for Billy’s murder, they had just one problem…
…Peter claimed he couldn’t remember what he did that night.
Detective Luca’s career can’t afford another mistake. This case could be a problem, though, as the obvious suspect doesn’t remember a thing. Is Peter trying to pull a fast one?
Who else could have done it?
There’s more at play than meets the eye. Politics and personal demons plague him. Luca’s career and maybe his life are on the line.
1. Which character would you like to be in this book?
Detective Luca – he comes in mid-way and was such a fun character to write that I built a series around him!
2. Do you always take a book/erader wherever you go?
Definitely. I also read on the phone…
3. Say someone asks if they can use your name in a book. Would you rather be the ‘good one’ or the ‘bad one’?
A likeable bad guy!
4. Do you prefer to read/write standalones or series?
Standalones generally speaking
5. Where can I find you when you are reading?
Almost anywhere but for sure on the beach.
6. Where can I find you when you are not writing/reading?
Playing my sax!
7. Can you walk past a bookstore without going inside?
No, the temptation is too great (but I also get pulled in with wine shops)
8. What are you most proud of?
Being happy and optimistic.
9. What goes through your mind when you hold your new book in your hands for the first time?
This may sound odd but you’re proud in way like with your children.
10. What piece of advice would you give to aspiring writers?
To write regularly. Whether every day, as I do, or once a week etc. just stick to it.
