My latest novel: “One Decent Thing”
It was late in the evening and after a good dinner, I decided to take an invigorating walk along the rocky shore. Behind me there was a faint glow from the distant street lights and occasionally a brighter light as a car circled the roundabout at the end of the promenade. I gingerly picked my way over the sharp stony obstacles, for not only were they obstructing me, but the raging gale pushing at me was, in part, determining my route. The storm had been raging all day and as the light had declined, the wind had increased in ferocity, although it brought no rain.
In the pale light I could pick out the white shape of the chaotic waves as they met the rocks in front of me and broke in clouds of spume. Beyond them, out to sea, in the direction of Ireland, was a complete and utter darkness, a threatening, grossly ominous blackness.
It was the flash of a bright light out at sea which caused me to stop. Just one flash, nothing more. I waited and watched, but waited in vain. It did not appear again. My imagination took over and by the time I had reached my hotel I knew the story I would write.
My writing genre is historical fiction and this took precedence. But now, almost twenty years later, I have written the story born on that rocky shore. “One Decent Thing” is my first thriller.
