When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I read a lot of classical novels, military biographies and short mystery stories, plus modern crime writers: Ian Rankin: Peter Robinson and Simon Becket. I'm a keen gardener and enjoy snapshot photography. Regularly I broadcast reflections (thought for the day and very short stories of my own creation) on Nottingham's Millside Hospital Radio.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Mainly from Amazon Kindle. If I enjoy an ebook I will usually write a review. My book reviews are invariably written with a positive slant, as I cannot see much point in writing a negative review.
With modern lives running at such a fast pace we have so little time to do justice to the full length novel. This is why the ten-minute tale is so useful for reading on a bus, a plane or a boat. Here are forty short mystery and ghost stories by Harry Riley that will, shock, and surprise you and perhaps even raise a smile or two as you journey through life's tortuous highway.
