Book Savvy Spotlight on Oge Austin-Chukwu

Image
Bringing you exclusive interviews with authors featured in the Book Savvy Newsletter. Our Guest is Oge Austin-Chukwu * Enjoy the interview. Q1. Can you tell us a little about yourself and your book 'Pearls of Wisdom'? I have been writing since I was a child. I love words and the concept of using them to paint a picture that people can relate to. As a medical doctor in a busy hospital setting I couldn't seem to find the time to write or indeed do other things I had an interest in doing, so eight years ago I retrained as a General Practitioner and my work/life balance is so much better. I wrote Pearls of Wisdom because I believe there is so much we can learn from looking at other people's lives. My heroes are ordinary people who do extraordinary things because they believed in Someone and Something greater than themselves. The Bible is full of these ordinary people. Pearls of Wisdom aims to capture just a few of these women.   Q2. What was your motivation for

Another resoundingly engaging Crime Detective Novel

Image
The Alkan Murder By  Julius Falconer A notably intriguing murder mystery–will you identify the murderer before the detectives do? Another crime novel from the inimitable Julius Falconer, written in the finest British traditions: suave, sophisticated and sharp. The wealthy and reclusive Harry Quirke, misanthropist and student of the piano works of Alkan, is stabbed to death in his country house outside Tadcaster. Only one of the obvious suspects seems to have much of a motive: his alibi is shaky, it is true, but there is no proof of his involvement. DI Moat and his assistant DS Stockwell follow one false lead after another in an exasperating investigation that seems to be getting nowhere: a gypsy caravan, an old murder in Kansas, the hurried will of a dying man, a golf-course green and an unfinished catalogue of Alkan’s works – none of it seems to make sense. Finally, the murderer makes the smallest of slips, and the penny drops - but it’s a close thing! Find out more “Res
