My casting for Shannon

Ivan Kaye autograph

The Green Green Grass cast card hand-signed by Ivan Kaye (Bryan) measuring approximately 6" x 4"

Ellie Bendle would be perfectly portrayed by Poppy Montgomery. Her eye's would be emerald green though - otherwise a dead ringer for my Ellie.

There's a saying in Egypt that ‘if you drink from the Nile you will always return’  - it’s true in my experience. So I thought I’d share with you today why my books are set in Egypt and how I came to be so influenced by this mysterious gem of the East.

One of my favourite views in Cairo. Taken from the rooftop terrace of the Zeinab Khatoon house it overlooks the  Al Azhar mosque (one of Cairo's oldest mosque's dating back to 970AD). In House of Scarabs I transposed this to be Ellie, my main female character's favourite spot. Art taken from reality.

Three strangers bound together by ancient Egyptian prophecy. Will they survive long enough to uncover what the gods have in store?

One week to go until House of Scarabs launches! I'm flip-flopping between excitement and abject horror. Today's priorities were the production and development of social media material and the preparation of advertising.

Let me introduce you to the final member of the House of Scarabs - Ben Ellis.  I had fun with Ben. He made me laugh more times than I can remember. His humour is sharply sarcastic and he uses it constantly to get out of difficult situations.  Ben is an archaeologist on his way to Egypt before he found himself bound to Ellie and Gerhard. I love the antagonism between he and Ellie - it was such fun to write.  Again Ben wrote himself - I don't ever remember having to think about what he would…

I'd love to introduce you to a friend who's been living in my head for more than 5 years - Ellie Bendall.  She's a sassy, sarcastic and sometimes glacial woman.  She's made me laugh and cry, and sometimes I've screamed in frustration at her choices.  Ellie's strong and fragile in even measures but there's not many people I'd rather have on my side than her.  I believe Ellie wrote House of Scarabs - she certainly screamed at me if I took her down the wrong road.  You'll either love or hate…

Today it's my very great pleasure to introduce you to a lovely old gentleman - Gerhard Webber. Don't tell a soul but he's become my secret 'old man' crush.  Gerhard is an utter gentleman - caring, quiet, thoughtful and kind.  He's incredibly smart and eloquent whilst somehow managing to be understated and humble.  The poor fellow often has to play a conciliatory role between the fiesty anger of Ellie and the sardonic quips of Ben. Meet Gerhard yourself
