I'm participating in the Australia Day Giveaway Blog Hop being ran by Book'd Out (mandatory reading for serious book-lovers).
I'm giving away a signed copy of my first novel, The Devil's in the Detail. To win, I just want you to answer one simple question: What one thing inspires you the most?
I was asked this recently in an interview and found it extremely difficult to answer. Inspiration can come though so many things - music, films, books, conversations with friends. I eventually decided that hiking was the thing that inspires me the most. I'm amazed at the ideas, stories and characters that pop into my head while climbing a mountain or walking across a secluded field. The novel I'm currently writing (just moved onto second draft - progress!) was conceived and mapped out while walking across Spain on the Camino de Santiago. For me, hiking is the one thing that inspires me the most.
The competition details are below - so get your entries in and make sure you check out Book'd Out for more great give-aways from other bloggers and authors.
For those celebrating Australia Day tomorrow - have a great (and safe) day.
