Writing “The Terrible Quin”

This was my first published book. It’s a tense and tight thriller which I wrote after telling the whole story to my two children on a camping holiday in Cornwall and Devon. I serialized the story over ten nights – and the book ended up with ten such chapters. The whole thing was there, I just had to write it down. Although, I have to say, when I first started writing it, I had the “voice” all wrong. I ripped up pages and pages of writing and started again. It was a hard thing to do, but I then got the dark nature of the book just right. “The Terrible Quin” is an exciting read and comes to a most thrilling climax. The book is out of print now, but I plan to re-publish it myself on Amazon Kindle and in paperback, as well as a Kobo version.
