I used to write in the mornings and translate in the afternoons. None of the characters in Night Runner are me but my job, as the author, is to try to empathise with them and tell their stories as believably as I can. Kit learns from the Skipper's daughter that the island is now known as Cairn Island. I'm re-reading Out of Shadows by Jason Wallace gets better every time and the collected short stories of Guy de Maupassant an old favourite. I found it to be quite vague and found myself having to re-read some paragraphs because I would get distracted. By this time I was hooked, so I carried on.

What do you think people will say about Buried Thunder? They pull out some clubs and charge at them. A wave suddenly appears and threatens to drown them all. But I would give Apocalypse a score of They return to the village and Ula gives the weak Kit some food.

Vegetarian shepherd's pie the way my wife cooks it, followed by coffee ice cream. The remaining islanders appear and attack them.
