Easter came and went with frost and chills. Now, the weather has got warmer, but the grey skies continue, along with rain and gloom.
Meanwhile, I’ve written 50,000 words of my new novel, Silent, a psychological thriller set on the Yorkshire/Lancashire borders, featuring a group of young pianists who have come together for a week of piano workshops. In Silent, central character Gavin falls for one of the other students on the course, Philippa, a Goth from Kent, but their relationship becomes obsessive and destructive, leading to disaster… As a classically trained pianist myself, I feel particularly qualified to write this story.
In the following sample, central character Gavin has started to struggle with his surroundings:

Meanwhile, my other two novels – Secrets by Lawrence Estrey and EggHead – are available from Amazon in paperback and e-book.
