Rumour has it that today is World Cat Day, and since what’s the internet really for if not sharing cat pictures, here’s a photo of one of my very favourite authors, Patricia Highsmith, and her cat, both being distracted by the sound of someone opening a tin of sardines somewhere off screen. There’s also a photo of my own little friend, Fluffypaws, who whilst not looking overtly sinister here, is making it clear in no uncertain terms that the synopsis of my Book 3 needs a little more work.
Haven’t read any Highsmith? Love a gut-twisting dollop of suspense, some stylish prose and an utterly despicable protagonist or two? ME TOO. Try starting with my favourite of all of her novels, Strangers on a Train.
So whilst I’m waiting for my publisher’s editorial notes on Book 2, my Book 3 plotting and scheming has begun. New characters are starting to wave from the horizon and stories are starting to circle overhead, but does anyone have any ideas where and when I’m heading next??!
