From the latest novel I’m working on, a psychological thriller:
We’re standing on a narrow path behind the warehouse, in an area with little light, the rustle of wind and flames getting closer, the acrid fumes and heat from the fire permeating the night air. The fire has spread along the back wall, causing a cloud to mushroom upwards. Moving away from the building and the possibility of sudden explosion or collapse, we stumble along the narrow pathway in the semi darkness, tramping in broken glass as we make our way to a deserted stretch of road at the side of the building.
As you can probably see, my intention is to make the scene as vivid and atmospheric as possible.
Meanwhile, my debut novel Secrets by Lawrence Estrey is available from Amazon in paperback and e-book.
