The Needle House Origins

June 30, 2016


When I first started to write The Needle House I had no inclination that it would turn into a series of books. After all, it is difficult to see the end of the first book without imagining more will follow.


In fact, Needle was never even intended to be a crime book at all. I had started out with the intention of writing a paranormal thriller but when I reached the halfway mark, it dawned on me that the story just wasn’t working. The reason for this was simple, though it was something that I either chose to ignore or simply didn’t see.


It had all the makings of a crime rather than paranormal thriller.

A crime had been committed and yet I tried to skirt around this

issue and stick to the paranormal aspect of what I wanted to write.

After much scratching of the head I decided to change the book

around, DS Lasser had only appeared about fifty pages in, so I

dragged him kicking and screaming into the limelight and suddenly

it all made sense.


And the title?


Er, don't know really, I was just looking for something catchy. Not

the best answer in the world but true nonetheless.
