Tiny Tales Podcast: Chastity Flame 3

Many thanks to Darren Sant at Tiny Tales podcast: as you may know he does short readings of all kinds of fiction and poetry. Now he’s got an exclusive preview of the forthcoming third Chastity Flame novel A Cut-Throat Business which will be out soon from Fahrenheit Press. Chapter one is rather dark, so be warned!…

When Chastity Flame was just a Spark

I know I seem to have a new idea every minute and to change gears just about that often, so it’s kind of funny to see that some obsessions stay with me a very long time. The roots of my Chastity Flame novels are deep. The first novel I wrote in high school was also…

The Origin of Chastity Flame

When I describe Chastity Flame to people I usually use the shorthand description that she’s like an über-sexy female James Bond. Since Bond rebooted with Daniel Craig that’s a good selling point, although when I started thinking about Chas what I had in mind was the kick-ass heroine of Peter O’Donnell’s comics and novels (and…

Catching My Breath

A lie, but finals due tomorrow (technically, many already in — thanks!) and the end of grading in sight, though no end of quarantine in sight, alas. Feeling relief at all the things being cancelled, yet I am not making progress on the remaining things due! Itching to get back to Dundee, so first here’s…

The Roots of Ripley @NoirBristol

Hop on over to Bristol Noir to read my latest musings on the mind behind Tom Ripley. I am working on a thing about Patricia Highsmith, with a little Burnt Orange Heresy in there as well. I was going to give a presentation at Captivating Criminality, but I think it will go to print instead. Possibly…
