I was delighted to be featured in the latest Writing Magazine where I spoke about the origins of Vile City and in particular Stevie Campbell, the character who just wouldn't stop talking to me.
If you're a writer I would recommend that you subscribe to this great magazine so you can hear about markets and opportunities.
Vile City will be published in 2017 and will appear under my full name Jennifer Lee Thomson.
Before my dad passed away after a long and courageous battle with cancer, he expressed some regret that I’d never used my middle name Lee in my writing as I’m named after his great-grandmother.
Here's the blurb -
DI Duncan Waddell has big problems. He’s borderline diabetic. The paperwork is piling up faster than the underwear at a porn shoot.
Now his best pal DC Stevie Campbell, who’s in a coma after being attacked by a suspect, has started to talk to him. Trouble is, only Waddell can hear him.
The last thing he needs is the country’s biggest case to land on his lap.
Three women have gone missing in the city he’s fast coming to despise, victims of the GLASGOW GRABBER, as their assailant has been dubbed by local hack and all round thorn in Waddell’s backside, Catriona Hastie.
Shelley Craig is his latest victim, snatched as she and her boyfriend took a shortcut through
Glasgow city centre.
And she’ll do anything to make it home.
Who kidnapped Shelley Craig?
|Vile City is also the story of Shelley Craig |
and her battle to make it home after she's kidnapped.
