Profile Information

Favorite Book
You've got to be kidding - favourite 200 perhaps
About Me:
I am an author of 7 books to date, which is partly why I am here, but I also have this project where I am identifying and showcasing all artists from the area where I was born - Hull & East Yorkshire. Incredibly, there are hundreds (I fear thousands) of published artists: http://www.a63revisited.com

I belong to blog sites targeted at writers (I really like http://www.speakwithoutinterruption.com/site/) but I write primarily because I am a reader, so this place seems ideal.

Night Reading - new writers, new readers - first day

Bruce Essar and I took the concept of Night Reading from conception to execution in a few hours, and the first day has proven extremely promising – 31 members and 16 posts / first chapters.

This is an experiment and although we know what we want to achieve and how we want to achieve it, we don’t know whether the formula will allow us to get there or not. We are seeking a triumph of faith and optimism over cynicism and… Continue

Survivng the death of the Hull fishing industry - a detective's tale

This is the third book I have read by Leslie Wilkie and I have to say that I could probably carry on slotting his books into my life forever. They are quirky and slyly wilful, and once I have picked one up I cannot rest until I have finished it, not because I am overtly driven on by either the plot or the characters, but the writing is so conversational that it is almost like sitting there talking with him late one night in a cosy hotel bar… Continue

Something for Harry Potter to chew on - 'Shaddowdon' by John Booth

For those desperately in need of a magical thriller which nods at the Harry Potter legend while having a definite mind of its own, ‘Shaddowdon’ by John Booth might well be your answer.

The similarities between ‘Shaddowdon’ and the Harry Potter series include the facts that the hero, Tim Shaddowdon, is a schoolboy with extraordinary magical powers, that he attends a school for magicians, that he regularly has to… Continue

Review of 'Broken Dreams' by Nick Quantrill

Over the last couple of years, Nick Quantrill has made an enviable reputation for himself as a highly accomplished true-to-the-gospels (of St. Elmore Leonard and St. Raymond Chandler) crime fiction writer who reliably delivers precisely crafted plots, authentic hardboiled dialogue and classic PI fisticuffs action in tales suffused with an atmosphere of compounding tension which slices through the shifting dynamics and corkscrew effects of the… Continue

Review of 'The Unitary Authority Of Ersatz' by Richard Sutherland

You know when you are sitting there typing away at your new book and suddenly a million tons of waterfall cascade all over you and sweep you away, and there is nothing you can do to resist as you tumble mid-air among all those words and ideas, but you know that when you hit the pool at the bottom, and should you survive, you will be handed a tick-box questionnaire by the publisher which asks you which categories your book fits into, and you… Continue

Hi Tim,


Thanks for the reminder. I'd joined this group back in September, then got so busy I totally forgot about it. It is a very active site, and I will be much more active here from now on.


A word about Grandfather and the Raven: The way it turned out I think it's more of a novel than it is a story cycle. Perhaps listing it as a literary novel would help move it up in sales? Just a thought.

Happy Holidays!

You may not know me or my work but I am the author of six critically acclaimed, award winning novels and I have been nominated twice for the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction. On Jan 9th 2010 my debut novel SUGAR will celebrate it’s 10th anniversary and I hope you will buy a copy or to help commemorate this milestone. And yes, Kindle purchases count!

Praise for the novels of Bernice L. McFadden:

"Searing and expertly imagined." - Toni Morrison

“Bernice L. McFadden is a master storyteller.” Adriana Trigiana

"Vivid." - The New York Times

"Eloquent..." (McFadden) is a talent worth watching." - The Washington Post

Peace & Light,

I read The White Hotel when I was still quite young, in high school, and it was just such an eyeopener to what a modern novel could be, it haunted me for ages. I remember it is quite a confronting novel but not in the usual way that novels about the Holocaust are thought of as confronting, it was such an intense book. I was probably not really mature enough to fully appreciate it at the time, but now you have me thinking about a few books from the past which I may revisit.

Hi Tim, thanks for the friend request, I see you like poetry, something I should read more of. I enjoy literary fiction, but I work with kids so I end up reading a lot of children's lit. Your work sounds intriguing, I will try and catch up with one of your novels when I get a break in the school/study routine.
The discussion on obscure favourites was an interesting one and it has made me think I shoud seek out more of Yourcenar's work. The Ackroyd novel Chatterton seems nicely ironic in the terms of the discussion, since in part it explores the transcience and nature of art. Happy reading and writing.

Hi Tim

Was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like. Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:
