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.

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…

The UK, year 2139
One hundred and fifteen years ago, a mysterious virus wiped out ninety-five per cent of humanity.
Blackthorn, the largest settlement in England, rose from the ashes of the devastated old world. It is a troubled city, where the workers live in crude shacks, and make do with the worst of everything.
It is a city of violent divisions, crime, and an over-populated jail block―until a charismatic traveller has a miraculous vision and promises to bring hope back to the people’s lives.
Although Blackthorn is tied to the Project Renova series is easily read as a stand alone. Enough of the backstory is included as we meet the inhabitants of the city, that the reader has a good flavour of the previous stories.
