Thank goodness for experts!
A big thank you to Graham Bartlett, police advisor. It's thanks to Graham that I've had a positive review from the wife of a retired Detective Sergeant and no comments about a lack of police authenticity in 'The Botanist'. Although the 'Twist in the Tale' novels aren't classic detective books, there's enough about police procedure in them for me to want to get it right. Graham has just read the 'police sections' of my second book, 'The Soloist', and thank goodness he did! I'd highly recommend him to any crime writers out there, and he also runs courses, which look brilliant. If you want to find out more about Graham and how he can help you with your writing, look for him on Facebook or Instagram!
