I have worked briefly as a tabloid journalist in the UK. I like my dark humor thriller character, Rudi Flynn, and I want to take him further.
Apart from 'Weimar Vibes,' which mirrors elements of 1930s German chaos in the UK tomorrow - and which won a gold star here on Authonomy - I have two more Flynn stories..
'Dark Clouds' follows an al-Qaeda activist who is planning a nuclear incident in central London, while 'Harps and Tears' features a loopy/disappointed in love US nuclear scientist. He's got a West Cork hideaway and he's doing something pretty awful for Islamic activists.
'Weimar Vibes' is complete at 80,000 words and Dark Clouds at 96,000.
Henry Miller's 'Tropic of Cancer; JP Donleavy's ' Ginger Man'; James Joyce's 'Ulysses';a lot of Scott Fitzgerald; most of Primo Levi and recently, 'The Book Thief' by Markus Zusak.
