Sometimes when I’ve read a book, I want to know how it came to be written. Like going backstage at the theatre when the final bow’s been taken, the curtain’s come down and the audience has gone home, I’m left wondering about the characters, or what made the writer decide the fledgling idea was a story worth running with. I have countless ideas of stories I might write, but time is limited, and very few make it onto paper, so those that do are special.
If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’ll be aware I’ve been rallying support for The Bull of Mithros in the Coventry Book Awards. So far, so fabulous, and the book’s made it through the first four rounds.
I couldn’t have done it without you, so I thought as a thank you I’d open the floor up to you, and write an ‘on request’ blog on why I wrote the Bull. It’s over to you. If you have questions on setting, or characters, or how I came up with the story, fire away, and I’ll answer as best I can.
If your main interest is in the food, I’ll cater to that too (no pun intended!). I’ve put a voting button on my Facebook page so you can choose a subject, or if you’d prefer post a comment on this blog.
There’s many a story behind the story in the book. Ask, and I shall reveal all…
Author of the Mysteries of the Greek Detective, books with a touch of mythology set in almost-contemporary Greece, and featuring lots of fabulous Greek food.
