Walking on Sunshine Blog Party

So Olga asked if I was going to join Hugh’s party this weekend. Not one to pass up such an invitation, I cast about thinking of who to bring. Sally Cronin had already kicked off the shenanigans on Hugh’s pages, Ailsa Abraham, David Prosser hmm…

So who should I invite? I wouldn’t be able to bring everyone …I’d have to get up a coach party. There are way too many supportive people in our community! Chief amongst those who daily ‘spread the love’ is Chris Graham, of course, but there are more than apes out there who daily support other writers and bloggers… names that are familiar to many, like Barb Taub and Viv Drewa ; Katie Sullivan, Jo and Ronovan…old friends like Alienora Taylor and Gary Vasey, more recent ones like Geoff at Tangental, or Ali Isaac and Jane Dougherty, whose path, by a strange coincidence, I may well have crossed many years ago when we were both in our teens. I could be here all night trying to find someone to ‘invite’… and still miss dozens …

And as I was thus pondering over yet another coffee, faute de mieux, the notifications lit up and I had it. I could be sneaky and mention more than one other blogger here… yet still, technically, only bring one to the party.

31ay5x0Ee6L._UX250_ I could introduce you to Geoffrey David West, a freelance journalist/writer, living in Surrey, England. He doesn’t say a lot about himself on his ‘About’ page… you really need to read the blog visit his Amazon author page or his website. Jack Lockwood, however, says a good bit more about him on his blog, the Jack Lockwood Diaries… and it is Jack’s adventures that Geoffrey shares in his books.

Jack, a BIA, a kind of criminal profiler who sometimes helps police on major inquiries, writes of his ‘biographer’, “Geoffrey West has written three novels about some big mysteries I was involved in. One where I got involved in a thirty year old mystery connected with John Lennon’s death, Rock’n’Roll Suicide, and another where I fell in love with a girl who I thought might be a killer, Doppelganger. The most recent one is Sheer Fear, where Jack’s brother gets involved in a cover-up of influential people involved in historic child abuse.” A book of short stories, taken from some of the posts which have been on Jack’s blog, has also been published.

collageTerry Tyler writes of Geoffrey’s latest book, Sheer Fear: “…the opening chapter is one of the best I’ve read for this sort of book – in fact it ought to be used in creative writing classes as an example of how to write the first chapter of a thriller.”

What Jack doesn’t tell you is that Geoffrey also writes on a number of other subjects and with a real streak of humour. Which is just as well as I haven’t told him I’ve invited him over here yet…

Stop Press: Rock’n’Roll Suicide, the first of the novels is free on Kindle for the next few days! Click here to download your copiy from Amazon UK  and Amazon.com!


Why not call over at Hugh’s News and Views and join the party? It’s easy to join in and there is not much involved.  All you have to do is choose a fellow blogger and give them a mention…

  3. Sue, thank you so much for joining in and coming to my blog hop party. I’m thrilled you could make it and thank you for introducing us to so many other bloggers, writer, and authors. Wow, there’s a big list to go through, some I already know, but others I look forward to reading about.

    Now grab yourself a drink with your guests and enjoy the rest of the party. It has just over another 24 hours to run – wow! Me and Sally have not slept since Thursday night!

    What a great piece, Sue! Thanks for mentioning that part of my review – I remember being struck by the fabulous opening to the book at the time 🙂

  12. Geoffrey,those novels certainly sound scary and intriguing. I shall wonder, being the romantic that I am, if I dare. However, since I love paranormal stories, reading the, “The Doppelganger” , might just be my cup of tea. Thank your for a very fun and interesting post. Did you have fun? Karen
