What is your e-reading device of choice?
I like reading on my Android phone with the Kindle app. It's nice when I'm waiting somewhere.
What are you working on next?
Right now, I'm revising book 3 in the Red Dog Conspiracy, The Ace of Clubs. I'm also working on a side story about Morton's timeline (he's here for a reason, and it might not be what you think), and a book set 30 years after the end of the series featuring two of the people who survive all this. That one will be under a pen name as it's a very different genre.
1899 years after the Catastrophe, Bridges is run by the Mob.
The Red Dog Conspiracy follows the story of 22 year old small-time private eye Jacqueline Spadros beginning from her first major case: the missing little brother of her best friend, whose murder ten years before still haunts her nightmares. The only clue? A Red Dog stamp across the alley from where the boy was last seen.
Dodging the man - seemingly mad - who has publicly threatened her life, placating her brutal, sadistic father-in-law, dealing with her feelings about her ex-lover Joseph Kerr, while being married to one of the city's biggest drug lords: Jacqui is a busy woman. Her life is about to get much busier. From the very first page, Jacqui is dragged into a web of lies, secrets, and betrayals which both endangers her life and the lives of those she loves.
