Publisher info

Um… I’m not filling in a proper bio for obvious reasons. I’ve changed enough details in the book to hide the identities of all involved, so I’m hardly going to give it all away here instead, am I? But I suppose there’s a few things I could say that won’t give the stalkers any more clues.

So, Indecent Descent is my first book. My only book. My last book. Definitely. Not. Writing. Another one. Right? Well, yeah, that’s what I thought last year when I finished it. I mean, it wasn’t like it was ever even meant to be a book anyway; it was just me writing stuff down to try and make sense of the insensible. But then, somehow, I started filling in the dialogue from my weirdly vivid memories; playing with different words to find the ones which could most accurately describe what was happening and… well, then it ended up being the sprawling, self-indulgent, meandering journey that ultimately became Indecent Descent.

The thing is, since I finished it, I’ve found I actually kind of miss that whole process of turning randomly scattered journal notes into something that vaguely resembles a readable account. I thought I was going to stop writing that journal as well but, strangely, I realised it had become quite addictive and I still do it. It actually helped – still helps – to deal with the craziness of my life. So, yeah, maybe there’ll be a few more episodes one day. I don’t know. We’ll have to see. But one thing’s for certain; there’ll be no shortage of material, given the continuation of my life as ridiculous-fantasy-become-reality. No shortage at all.

Whatever. Never mind the future. I can’t quite believe that other people – you – are now actually reading all this stuff that I wrote. And, in a few cases, paying for it, too. That’s so amazing. Unexpected. I feel oddly humbled by the process. Anxious, too. You know; I want you to at least get *some* enjoyment from your dollar. More than that, I guess; I hope you find at least one part which makes you smile. Jadie hopes so, too. She likes making people smile. She’s pretty good at it in real life – I hope that comes across in the book, too.

Speaking of Jadie, she's highly amused at the fact it's now been published and all you strangers are reading about us. At least… I hope you’re strangers. I definitely hope you’re not Kiera. Or Becky or Jess or Madison, for that matter. That could be awkward. Yeah, probably best not to think about that possibility too much…

Anyway, Jadie says now it sort of feels like people are watching us when we’re together. She knows that makes no sense but I kinda know what she means. It's not a bad thing. If you’ve read the book, you know how much she likes to watch, herself. But since then, she’s discovered she rather likes being watched, too. And, truth be told, I have too. Poor Bethan. She came home from uni at Christmas, popped over to see Jadie - her old friend from school - and ended up seeing rather more than she expected. That first time was an accident. The second time when Caitlyn came over… not so much. Yeah, like I said; no shortage of material for any future episodes…

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
That moment when I find just the right words to express the feelings I was having at the time, or when I manage to describe the girl I love in a way which paints a picture of her in my mind which is identical to the one already held in my memory.

Heh. That sounds properly trite doesn't it? It's kinda true, though. I mean, despite having to quit education when I was sixteen thanks to unexpected fatherhood, I was always good at English and I've always enjoyed playing with words. There are so many subtleties in the English language that fascinate me; just changing a single word or the order they are written in can completely change the feel of a sentence. When I get that right... it does feel good.

Oh, and having random strangers tell you that you gave them an erection for an entire evening or something? That's kinda fun as well.
What is your writing process?
I keep a journal on my computer, where I write down notes about things which have happened during the day. Yeah, I know. That's kinda sad, isn't it? Like some pathetic, self-obsessed teenage diarist from twenty years ago. But the journal helps me process whatever craziness has happened that day, and also helps me remember too. That's important to me. I don't ever want to forget this stuff.

My 'writing process' started as a means of further consolidating those memories. I began to take those notes from the journal and turn them into something which might be vaguely recognisable as a story. I enjoyed it, as it made the memories more vivid - I found that when I started reading the notes, a lot of other stuff came back to me. It was quite scary sometimes; even though I never wrote it down I could remember dialogue and things people said really clearly once my brain got that first kick from the notes. Once I had a basic sort of outline, I just kept going over and re-reading and filling in details whilst trying to refine the words so that they matched my memory of events.
