Author Q&A with UK Crime Book Club

I recently took part in an author chat in UK Crime Book Club (on Facebook,) and got asked some brilliant questions. I thought I’d share some of the questions and my answers. I hope you enjoy them.

Would you ever consider one of your books being made into a film?
I think both The Abattoir of Dreams and The Liar’s Promise would make great films, but for very different reasons. One emotional, one scary!

Mark, I totally agree with that but who would you choose for Michael (in The Abattoir of Dreams,) and The tall man (in The Liar’s Promise?)

I haven’t given it much thought but, someone like Christopher Lee for the Tall Man (if he were still alive!) And the young boy who plays Paco in You on Netflix (Luca Padovan,)   would be a great Mikey if he could do an English accent.

      

Which was the last book you read that scared the life out of you?
The Father of Lies trilogy by Sarah England, but especially the third in the trilogy, Magda.

Does your girlfriend ever worry about you, sleep with one eye open?!
She does when I ask her to mimic being strangled! But never mind my girlfriend, I sleep with one eye open!! LOL

Can you tell us something about yourself that would surprise us?
Yes. I once mistook my daughters escaped hamster, that was sat on the arm of a rocking chair, as an orb. Thinking the house was possessed, me and my girlfriend fled downstairs. A sure sign my imagination was doing overtime!
