Getting Grilled by Deano
I’m deep into what I hope will be the final round of edits for Deception! which is due to be published later this summer. So I’m delighted to let someone else do the heavy lifting on this week’s post. I recently met up with Detective Andrew ‘Deano’ Deans and was subjected to an in-depth interview.
I knew it was going to be serious when his opening words were: Before we start, I need to caution you – You do not have to say anything, but it may harm your credentials if you do not mention when questioned something which you later rely on in book sales, and anything you do say may be written about you.
He went on to ask all about my writing, the books I have published, the books I am planning to publish and how I go about starting a new project. This is easy, I thought, starting to relax. And that’s when he changed tack, and started asking more difficult questions; about what I thought, what I felt; and how I relaxed. I’ve been doing this to my guest for months now; it was a salutary experience to have the tables turned on me.

Deano is the fictional hero of the Detective Deans crime thrillers, written by James D Mortain. A former police officer with Avon and Somerset Constabulary, James now lives in North Devon and writes full time.
