Trapped in a glass cylinder, he must find a way to escape, find some light, and then someone to ask what the hell is going on. His name would be a good place to start. Then the number changes to 14.

Sometimes the stories told to tourists are more than just clever marketing. Sometimes a dark truth is woven into their enticing lies
Sometimes a few drops of blood and an old woman with a tattoo gun can change a life forever.

And now a few reader questions answered…

From Felicia Steele: What got you inspired to become a writer?

I used to enjoy writing stories at school but never even considered writing as a career. About five years ago, I had a ‘what if?’ moment after my daughter had been playing with our sat nav and thought it would make a great story. The idea wouldn’t leave me and continued to grow in my head.  Then, after I read one of Stephen King’s fantastic books and followed it with a book that was selling in the millions but I thought was written terribly, I decided to give it a go  myself.

From Zoe O’Farrell: What is your Kryptonite?

Screenshot 2018-10-26 at 08.52.58In terms of writing, researching on the internet is my Kryptonite. I can start off looking for jobs that kept men at home during the WW2 and find myself, two hours later, looking at videos of ghosts caught on camera or funny cats and I’ve not written a word!

From Terry: My question…would you like another cousin hehe

I don’t know if I could handle another cousin like her – she is wonderfully unique! But I’m always open to suggestions. 😉

Five Favourite Things with M.W. Brown

Welcome to Day 2 of Foster an Author 2018! Today I asked M.W. Brown to join me for a round of Five Favourites. Let’s sit back, relax and get to know more about our featured author! 

Giveaway alert: Want to win a copy of M.W. Browns debut novel, Portraits in Flesh? Post a question for her in the comments for a chance to win! On Friday, 26 October, I’ll choose a winner. Good luck!

Favourite place to write

image003

The perfect view for writing.

My husband and I run our own business, so life is pretty hectic and I write whenever and wherever I can squeeze half an hour to myself. I always have a notepad in my bag.

This year on holiday our apartment had a beautiful balcony overlooking the sea and I loved writing there when the day was cooling down. The view was very inspiring.

Favourite muse

I have two muses—David Bowie and my cousin. If I need an idea, I tell my cousin the general theme or problem and all she has to say is one word and it sends me down a path I may not have thought of before. When writing I like to listen to music and, because of David Bowie’s diverse catalogue, I can usually find a song or album that fits in with the mood of my chapter/story/character and use that to help fine tune the mood.

Favourite way to celebrate writing “the end”

I don’t really have a way to celebrate but as soon as I’ve finished a piece, I send it off to my cousin to read and eagerly wait for her feedback.

The mysterious M.W. Brown 🙂

Favourite time of day to write

I usually end up writing late at night because of my busy schedule. There are fewer distractions and I don’t feel like I’m missing out on family time. I’ve written to the early hours of the morning on occasion.

Favourite way to relax

Reading a good book in a deep, hot, bubble bath.

Thanks to M.W. Brown for doing a round of Five Favourites with me. Don’t forget to post a question for her in the comments for a chance to win Portraits in Flesh! And make sure you stop by her website and get to know even more about the enigmatic author.  🙂

Happy reading!
