I talk to a lot of people to find out what they like to read, what they like to watch and how they interact with their world. When I’ve talked to readers, they want to be entertained, they want to have a chuckle, they want to cling to the edge of their bedside table as the suspense is ratcheted up.
But they also want something that makes an impact on them.
I don’t want people to spend their time reading my novels, I’d prefer they invested it. That’s not to say that I have all the answers, rather it’s my approach to life to ask the second question. That what I do in my novels.
To me, it’s about connection. It’s more than writing something that is entertaining or enjoyable, although I hope it’s both. It’s also about tickling the edges of an issue to get people going a little bit deeper into life.
So what do you want to read about?
I’ve just completed my first two novels, where I explore the topics of reality TV, church, emotional baggage, consumerism and relationships.
I currently have two books published. They’re both in the non-fiction field and cover a range of topics in which I work, helping people explore the experience of having trouble having kids or how businesses can go past the surface of social media to engage with it fully.
Diverse, huh? I know. But there is one thing in common across all my writing. It’s looking beyond the surface and getting more out of life.
