And now I hand over to Mel to answer a few questions about the series:

What was it that inspired you to start the Kayli Bright series of books?
Good question, Mark. I had an idea for a trilogy, something significant happens in the third book that turns Kayli’s world upside down. I don’t want to give any spoilers away in case people haven’t read it.
With this scenario in mind I then created Kayli Bright, actually I stole the name from one of my dear fans.

I found some parts of the series darker than your previous work. Was this a conscious decision to do something different to your other books?
Hmm… I’m really not sure how to respond to that, I definitely didn’t plan it that way, but some other readers have also pointed out how different this series is to the Justice series.

Which three words would you use to describe Kayli?
Tenacious, caring and determined. An all round good guy in the grand scheme of things.

Is Kayli anything like you or anyone you know, or she completely from your imagination?
Actually she isn’t, unlike Lorne in the Justice series, she’s just like me in everything she does. Kayli is a strong character who I created in an afternoon. I’m delighted that my fans seem to love her though.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the first three books of the series and intend to read the fourth soon. Are there going to be any more than the four currently available? (Fingers crossed.)
You’re very kind, thank you so much for your wonderful support as always, Mark.

Originally I only intended the Kayli Bright series being a trilogy but the series has been very successful so far and I have received so many emails about the characters, pleading with me not to end the series that I bowed to the pressure. I’ve since written the fourth book, Murderous Betrayal, out today. I’m also writing the fifth book in the series at the moment which I intend releasing in August, that one is titled Dying Breath.

Thank you for inviting me to take part in this fun Q and A session about one of the favourite characters I’ve created to date.


I wish you all the best with today’s new release Mel.
