Geraldine Evans Biography 'Evans brings wit and insight to this tale of looking for love in all the wrong places. The series has stand out central characters and clever plots. Geraldine has been writing since her twenties and published since her thirties. She decided to turn indie after nearly twenty years as a traditionally-published author. Her interests include growing plants from cuttings and seeds, painting portraits, mostly of her unwilling 'volunteered', family, and learning keyboards with a very patient tutor.
I thoroughly enjoyed Dying For You, the sixth in the series. A lot of humour is injected in Rafferty's narrative. He's got himself in an impossible situation and one wonders what can go wrong next. I savoured this book and I'm keen to read the rest in the series asap. A cleverly plotted tale. Fantastic books. They have terrific characters and interesting plots. The characters spring off the page. The dialogue is sparkling, great interplay between the two detectives, and the mystery is intriguing to the end.
Geraldine Evans knows how to make a character leap off the pages at you. It's another page-turner from Geraldine Evans and is crime writing at its best.

But I only really tried and failed to write seriously in my twenties. I got into my stride when I hit thirty and finally got published six years' later. Most writers have to serve a long apprenticeship.
Yes, it's hard, with plenty of tears along the way. But if you have the 'write stuff', you'll stick it out. What else are you going to do? I knew I wanted to be a writer and i was prepared to do whatever was necessary to accomplish that ambition. Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up on several south London UK council estates. Not the greatest start for a would-be writer! You don't see too many haling from such locations. But did I let that deter me? Did I, heck. I regarded it as a challenge. Just as well I like a challenge because all during my dilettante twenties I just played around with writing, never finishing anything.
It seemed I wasn't UP to the challenge Then I hit the age of thirty. There's nothing like another year creeping by to gain your attention and push your determination into overdrive. I wrote and completed a book a year for each of six years after that. All romances.

Anyway, after my next book in the romance genre received the thumbs-down, I got good and mad. I felt like murdering someone. So I did. No, this is not a real-life confession. I don't fancy doing jail-time. Besides, murdering people in fiction is much more satisfying; you can kill off all those people who rejected you but without the unpleasantness of having the police break down your door.
And you get paid. What's not to like?

My council estate upbringing has been a major influence, not only on my eventual choice of genre, but also on my style. Although most crime novels seem to be written by the educated middle-classes and they set their novels in that milieu, I knew it wouldn't suit my natural style. We have a lot in common. Both lapsed Catholics from large London-Irish families with a council estate upbringing.
I gave Rafferty a family who felt— if he must be a copper— he might at least have the decency to be a bent one. No reflection on my own family who are snow-white law-abiders to a man and woman. But that premise for the series has given me some fun sub-plots that have poor Rafferty getting into more trouble than a Victoria lady of the night sans the morning-after pill. Add to Basket.
