‘Curiosity and a sense of adventure get new projects off the ground’

How do I get started?

By being curious and determined. My debut thriller Yesterday is about the question ‘how do you solve a murder when you can only remember yesterday?’. The concept came to me when I was travelling to a ballroom dance practice in late 2014. The premise was so intriguing, I started writing the next day. It became an exciting adventure, one which prompted me to reach for my laptop each morning. I was determined to find out if the question could be answered in an entertaining way, in the form of a story which kept me hooked myself. Curiosity and a sense of adventure help writers get new projects off the ground. They make us want to start.
