Why did you choose to write this particular book? I was having a hard time with a thriller novel that I was working on. I needed a break so I started writing Evergreen. As soon as I started I couldn’t stop. A couple of days later I’d finished the first draft, and was a little disappointed that it was over.
What was the hardest part about writing this book? This book was a pleasure to write from beginning to end. It didn’t take long and I really got into it. I think the hardest part was working out who the killer was. I tend not to plot out the book before I write it, I prefer not to know what happens, otherwise it can become tedious. You don’t want to know the entire plot before you read a book or you’ll lose interest in it, for me the same applies to writing it.
How do you promote this book? I don’t do much to promote the books. I try to get as much exposure as I can and I will try to promote it through social networks and Kindle sites, but there are very few methods that actually work. I have had plenty of success In the past with other books, but I’m not really sure what I did to achieve it.
Will you write others in this same genre? I will definitely do more books on the “community” theme. I loved writing both Evergreen and Grastik’s Plastic Princess in that style. I also enjoy the serial killer theme, so I’ll no doubt attempt another story like that again.
How much of the book is realistic? I spent a lot of time researching the Gypsy communities. And by that I mean I watched a lot of Channel 4 documentaries. But I think I gave them a fair rap. They’re good people and their way of life fascinates me.
Evergreen is the peaceful, idyllic home for a bustling traveler community. It is home to Patrick Ryan, the figurehead of the community; home to Aidan McCleary, Patrick’s mentor and friend; home to scores of youngsters and generations of families. But now Evergreen is also home to a sadistic serial killer, someone who is targeting the youngsters of this once peaceful community.
They know the killer lives among them, know that one of their own is tearing this small community apart. They want to deal with it themselves, to track down the killer and deliver their own justice, but can they find him before he rips their home apart?
Evergreen is a serial killer thriller/whodunnit with a macabre and sinister slant. A book not for the faint hearted.
