When I was first asked to talk about my book, I found it quite a challenge. How do you summarise a novel? So here is a short recording of me trying to do exactly that. The guitar is that of, Andrea Gonzalez Caballero, playing Serenata Española by Joaquim Malats. Check her out and whilst you are at it, maybe download a Kindle version of Permissive Ink, now only 1.99.

I was lucky enough to be invited onto The Book Show by Hannah Murray to talk about my debut novel: Permissive Ink. I talk about why I wrote the book and why my wife, two children and I became black belts in karate in Spain. I also discuss the writing process, and what you need to know if you are going to write a book. I am sure you are. Find out what can go wrong and how to overcome it. After 17 Years in Spain, I would not change a thing, although believe me, I made plenty of mistakes.
