Excerpt: The squeezing felt cathartic, the more pressure he applied, the better he felt, the stronger and more powerful he became. It silenced her taunting, those cruel words she knew burnt into his soul. His mind repeated a mantra – shut up, Gillian, shut up. The room grew eerily quiet, a blinding red mist across his eyes began to fade as he watched the vitality leave her eyes, and her frantic thrashing and clawing lessened then ceased. This moment changed his life forever.

This novel was inspired by several true life instances, I found too compelling not to use.

As authors and writers our inspiration comes from everywhere and anywhere, it is our imaginations that mold them into narratives.

I hope your 2017 writing projects are not only enjoyable but successful. If you would like to share them here, that would be wonderful.
