What a very strange feeling it is however, to see this as a physical book! I think back to this time last year, when I was immersed in writing the first draft – getting close to the date when I took that first trip to London and came back feeling inspired, I got stuck straight into writing Part 3 ‘Cat and Mouse’ which is possibly the darkest chapter of the book.  But I was on a roll – so much so, I soon had the entire first draft written just a few weeks afterwards.

I would just like the book to sell now really – I want more people to read it, enjoy it and spread the word. But to have a first novel under my belt feels like a great achievement. I can look at it, hold it in my hand and turn the pages – and it feels rather strange to think that this physical entity here was created by me.
