A Belated Posting

Hi to everyone. Sorry for the delay, but it’s the first chance I’ve had to sit down in front of a computer for a while. I’ve been busy – a good thing, I guess.

Book sales have been strong enough and, although reviews have been a bit thin on the ground, Wired has been well received by the powers that be. No one’s slagged it, so no complaints here.

In the past month or so I’ve been getting my mug on the telly down here in Melbourne. Channel 31’s breakfast show are using me as their crime reporter every fortnight. Every second Thursday around 8:15am, I talk cops and robbers with the team. So far I’m loving it. TV’s lots of fun, and it’s giving me some valuable experience in front of the camera.

I’ve also been working on a hush-hush TV pilot with Fremantle Media (Sydney Swans Media are yet to make contact unfortunately. Go Swannies!). Filming’s already under way, and a commercial station will make a decision on the show’s viability in the next couple of months. Here’s hoping the green light’s switched on.

A couple of other production companies have also taken an interest in some other ideas that were swimming around in my head. Where this leads, I’m not sure. But at least I’m in there having a go.

Things are still heading in the right direction with the film adaptation of the first book, Undercover. A first draft of the screenplay is currently being worked on by the brilliant Torus Tammer. From what I’ve seen, the script should be a cracker.

The fourth book, a fiction effort, is coming along slowly but surely. I’ve been plotting it out, and I really like they way it’s shaping up. In a nutshell: sex, drugs, violence, corruption, the Mafia, and the mystery of a missing undercover cop. More news as it comes to hand. Working title is Shine On.

Personally, I’m still single and need all the help I can get. Tragic as always.

Until next time (not promising anything, but I’ll try and get round these parts more often), over and out.
