Paul Pilkington


I'm from the UK and have had material broadcast on BBC radio and ITV television, as well as being long listed for the 2004 London Book Fair Lit Idol competition. I am the author of the Emma Holden suspense mystery trilogy, The One You Love, The One You Fear, and The One You Trust. My aim is to create fast-paced, twisting and turning fiction that stirs the emotions. My standalone mystery, Someone to Save You, was released in early July 2011.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I first started writing seriously back in 1999. This was a comedy about four friends who have a somewhat traumatic time on holiday. Those friends later starred in Rob-a-Job, my full length comedy novel. Later I began to write suspense mysteries, but I still have a soft spot for those first comedies.
What is your writing process?
I tend to write in one hour blocks, either before or after work. If I'm on a roll, I can do 1000 words in that time. I like to write in public places, such as cafes, or libraries, where there is "white noise" but nothing too distracting!
