I am a writer based in Scotland. Smashwords is a great opportunity for those who have something to say about their world to feature their work. I spent a long time writing '15 Murderers' and thought long and hard before publishing the book this way.
I live and work in Ayrshire.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love the research and the editing. The actual writing is not too much of a problem - if you have done the ground work it just flows.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean everything to me. If just one person wants to read anything I've written that is a great thrill. Writing is really about reaching out and talking to someone outside yourself. If your writing means anything to a fan, then that is a reward in itself. If you meet people who like your writing that is even better.
This is the history of 15 notorious British Murderers. The horrifying list of evil includes Fred West, who hid his victims under the patio; Jack the Ripper, who needs no introduction here; and Dennis Nilsen, one of the most evil men of recent times.
