Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I read absolutely anything I can get my hands on! My favourite genre is probably the thriller, but I love a good bit of horror and some comedy thrown in as well. In order to be a successful fiction writer, I believe you have to read as much as you can of every different genre there is - plus non-fiction books - in order to expand your own style and storytelling abilities.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
At the moment I have the Kindle Paperwhite, which is great for reading wherever you want. I also have the Kindle app on my phone so I can continue reading my current book wherever I am and whatever I'm doing. However, although I love e-readers and the opportunities they have given independent authors such as myself, I still love a good old-fashioned actual, physical book!

Series

The Downfall Trilogy
The world is falling apart. The end is nigh. The Downfall is coming. But not if Scarlett Steele can help it. A sixth form student in a North London college, Scarlett’s days are filled with school, homework, and writing her blog – ‘Truth Not Terror’, in which she reports on the world’s atrocities and tries to spread the message that ‘peace will prevail’. She’s a believer that somehow, somewhere, among all the shootings, the stabbings, and the bombings, there is still some humanity left in mankind. Still some hope. But what if she’s wrong? On the day of The Broadcast, everything changes, and when Scarlett and her friend Seth meet the mysterious Adriana, it’s only a matter of time before their world is turned completely upside down. Will Scarlett and her friends discover the truth? Will they choose to stand up and fight before it’s too late? And more importantly, will they be able to stop The Downfall?
