HIDEAWAY was the first novel of mine that elicited a pleasing quantity of hate mail. The volume of hate was never so great that the postal. Dean R.

That’s another reason I don’t enjoy the books If you only get your books at airport gift shops, and you read mostly the likes of Janet Evanovich, John Grisham and Harlan Coban, what I would like to call the blockbuster writers, the Jason Bays and John Carpenters of the literature world.

I am very excited to be having my novel filmed by an American studio owned by such an eminent Japanese entertainment entity as yours. Now he has a psychic link with an evil man who murders humans so he can portray them in a scene that he thinks is befitting. Vassago is one creepy guy and enough mystery is enshrouded around him to leave the reader from becoming bored.


He remembered the bat that had swooped into the service station lights to snatch the hapless moth out of the air, eating it alive.

Vassago did take their adopted child Regina to his “hideaway”, a deserted amusement park. So, Hatch has an accident and a doctor reanimates him after 80 minutes. Not exactly epic anymore, is it? I hope this clears up your confusion, and I look forward to your reply to my letter of 10 November.
