what is “the silence of six”?

Would you believe I’ve never had a proper cover reveal before? The covers for Fair Coin and Quantum Coin just appeared on the internet one day without much fanfare, so I felt like I had missed out on a fun milestone for authors. I love cover reveals for other books so much! I wanted one! That’s why I’m thrilled that the superb […]

sherlock’s approach to research

Early this year, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts launched its interview series, In Conversation, with Benedict Cumberbatch. (Good choice!) Something he said about how he researches a new role struck a chord with me: [Research is] a security blanket. Not all of it — very little of it ends up on screen, often. And […]
