What can you tell us about your new release, Sadie’s Sin?

What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?
The Stand by Stephen King, Shantaram by David Gregory Roberts, The Last Kingdom by Bernard Cornwll, The Green Mile by Stephen King, The Book of Dust by Philip Pullman.
Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?
Stephen King and his technique of creating characters.
What’s your favorite thing about writing?
The day-to-day process
What is a typical day like for you?
On weekends, I try to write most of the day. Taking breaks for exercise and meals.
