What Book Am I Writing Today?
When I set out to write my Equalizer novel and its sequel, Killed in Action, it took all of my energies and creative skill, such as they were, to complete them. I had been asked by my editor at St. Martin’s Press to finish the first Equalizer novel in 5 months, and the second Equalizer novel in nine months.
But the floodgates had opened, I am glad to say, and there were some other opportunities that had come my way. I sold a children’s book to a UK publisher, Candy Jar Books, called Lost in Christmas. I got contacted to write my autobiography for an US publisher based in Georgia called ‘Bear Manor Media’. There is a series of Lethbridge-Stewart books that Candy Jar Books has published for the Y/A market based on a character from the “Dr. Who” era, set mainly in the 60’s. I came up with an idea for one of these books, called Ice Maidens, which I am currently writing. I sold a third novel in the Equalizer series titled: Equalizer: Requiem, which I am also writing. I took a step back from this flurry of activity and thought to myself: ‘What the heck am I doing? Have I gone off the deep end?’ But I have deadlines to meet and doing so has been a very rewarding experience for me.
