Book Savvy Spotlight on I. C. Camilleri

Bringing you exclusive interviews with authors featured in the Book Savvy Newsletter.
Our Guest is I. C. Camilleri*
Enjoy the interview.

Q1. Can you tell us a little about yourself and your book 'The Blake Curse'?
I was born on the 7th of February in Malta, an island in the middle of the Mediterranean. I graduated in Medicine and Surgery in 1993 and I moved to the UK shortly afterwards. And this is where I still live and work. Medicine and writing are my passion. The Blake Curse is my first published work. It is a psychological thriller and romance set in the beautiful city of Cambridge.

Q2. When you write what emotion do you seek to evoke in your readers?Passion and love. How could I not write about love? My Mediterranean roots compel me to do so.
 
Q3. Why did you decide to begin writing and how much time do you dedicate to your writing?
Medicine can be pretty stressful at times. Your patients become your whole life and how do you stop yourself from taking your work home with you? Some might jog or swim, others might play tennis....I'm the sedentary type and so I write. I go into my own beautiful world inside my head and craft characters and scenes. And I do this as often as I can.

Author of a new book - 'Full Marks' interviewed by Justin Steckbauer*

Interview with Author Neal James, an insightful discussion of his latest book.

Give us a quick introduction on yourself and your book.
I am Neal James, UK author, and I began writing in 2006. By day I am an accountant, and all of my writing to date has been completed in whatever spare time I have outside of that employment. Since 2008 I have through Pneuma Springs Publishing released three novels and an anthology. In 2013, my fourth novel 'Full Marks' will join the growing portfolio.

What inspired you to write your first book?
I had been writing short stories on a couple if US writing sites, but one of them seemed to have the potential for a much longer piece of work. That was 'A Ticket to Tewkesbury' (ISBN9781905809349), and followed the love story between a soldier returning from France in 1945 and the nurse whom he met at a recuperation hospital in Kent. The novel itself evolved into a spy thriller and the chase for a set of highly secret documents.
