Could you tell… Would you?
When four-year-old Mia Edwards goes missing on a play date, everyone suspects Jessica Green knows what happened, especially Mia’s mother, Holly…
But Jess won’t tell anyone.
Psychiatrist, Dr. Oscar de la Nuit, is perceptive and determined to save Jess from the same regret and secrets he lives with.
Oscar thinks he has Jess figured out, but will she lead to Oscar’s redemption, or will she be his downfall?
Hi, Thanks for joining the tour. Interesting questions, they are fun. Cheers,
When and where do you prefer to write?
I’m a social writer. I used to love writing at a café for hours, but now I often write on the sofa. I’ve always been able to think clearer later in the day, so I try to do other tasks earlier in the day and get a walk in so that I can sit and settle into writing in the afternoon and evenings.
Do you need peace and quiet when you are writing?
I’m kind of the opposite. I like background noise. Music, talking, Netflix. I’ll take pretty much any noise!
If you had the chance to co-write a book. Whom would it be with?
I think writing with Gillian Flynn would be an amazing experience. I love her work, and seeing how that magic develops would be amazing.
Say someone asks if they can use your name in a book. Would you rather be the ‘good one’ or the ‘bad one’?
I wouldn’t mind either way, but I’d love to see what they came up with when it was finished!
Who would you like/have liked to interview?
Thomas Harris, for giving us Hannibal and everything after. The depth between the characters; the blurring of morals and choices; an interesting mind.
Where can I find you when you are reading?
I’ve been reading a lot of eBooks lately, partly because it means I can read anywhere! My favorite place is probably still stretched out across the couch.
Where can I find you when you are not writing/reading?
I love walking and exploring, so probably out walking somewhere or hanging out with friends/family.
What goes through your mind when you hold a new book in your hands for the first time?
Excitement. Trepidation. Appreciation for the amount of work everyone puts into making that story happen, and a kind of hopefulness that it might mean something to someone as they read it.
How do you come up with a title for your book?
I tend to do titles last, and usually use a working title until I find something that feels like it fits the theme of the story.
How do you pick a cover for your book?
‘How to Spot a Psychopath’ had a lot of concept directions the book could have taken, but I really wanted something that was simple, with a slight hint of flashy, superficial charm that also conveyed something about Oscar.
About the Author
MQ Webb has always believed in the transformational nature of words, and a medium to utilize them. How to Spot a Psychopath is the first book in the Oscar de la Nuit Psychological Thriller series.
Born without a Middle name, Q is such an undervalued letter of the alphabet, only appearing with u, so thought they would give it some respect by acknowledging it in their name.
A fascination with human behavior and motivation led them to study psychology. They once worked in a building that was converted from a gaol and is a marketing consultant for NFP’s, universities, and the public sector.
