Today I have an interview with K.J. McGillick, courtesy of Rachel’s Random Resources, as part of the mini blog blitz for ONE.
Where did/do you get your ideas from?
The ideas from my books come from my varied and usual background in the law, medicine and international travel.
How do you pick your characters names?
Some just come to me and others I try to pick based upon the ethnicity after doing some research.

Published in 2017 The Lighterman is the third book in the series. Not having read the first two books I was a little concerned, but happily there was enough back information woven into the story so that I didn’t feel confused at all or unable to follow the plot.

If our memories make us who we are, who is a man without any? Nameless has only a gun, missions from a shadowy agency, and one dead aim: dispense justice when the law fails. As he moves from town to town, driven by splintered visions of the past and future, he’s headed toward the ultimate confrontation…
Nameless comprises six novella length stories (they can be bought separately) with hints of the supernatural and horror, about a man with no past.
As the end of 2019 is almost upon us, it’s favourite books of the year time!
It’s always a difficult choice to narrow the list down to twenty, but I do enjoy looking back at the books I’ve read during the year.
So, in no particular order…
