Originally I'm a Yorkshire boy but have lived in Lancashire since I was four. I can read and write and thoroughly enjoy both.
Amongst my various qualifications that I have yet to use is an MA in Creative Writing from MMU. I'd thoroughly recommend the course to anyone interested in writing as it's great to be around like minded folk.
My favourite author is Stephen King and I maintain that when he's on form he's as good as anyone has ever been. That said, my favourite book is Catcher in the Rye although it's not everyone's idea of fun.
I'm am armchair sportsfan. For football, it's Liverpool. Golf, Tiger Woods. He'll come good. Tennis, Federer.
Most nights I also love an ale. And a gin - specifically Hendricks, there's none finer. I like Port too, but I'm less fussy about the brand.
Lot's of things get in the way, work, life, but at the end of the day it's all about the writing.

It was the first book I'd read of Jamie's and a thoroughly good read it was. The characters were well developed and a nice little twist at the end

Having read both All the Fun of the Fair and Playground Cool, as soon as I heard there was a new offering from Mr Sinclair I downloaded it straight away without even reading the blurb.
Would that turn out be a rash decision...? Would it heck as like!
This book turned out to be a thoroughly stonking read! It started off pretty gently and then the story, action and indeed characters gradually built up to a pretty great crescendo which, along with the grand finale, left me almost breathless.
Like Mr Sinclair's other books, the careful use of description, along with great characterisation, meant that I could "see" the action very clearly - another one for the screen maybe?
I hear a whisper that Mitch and Rupert may return. I for one hope so...
