Featured Interview With Arthur Crandon
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I’ m a Somerset lad. Born and brought up in the farming community in the South West of the UK. During my career I’ve lived in the UK, The Phillipines and Hong Kong before returning to the UK. We plan to get a cat when our two year old son is old enough that he will not try to eat it.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I’ve loved reading from and early age and have written intermittently throughout my life, but I started writing seriously in my fifties while living in Hong Kong.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
Horror and crime thrillers would be my favourite reads although I enjoy humerous writings from Ben Elton and Terry Pratchett. I have been greatly inspired by Stephen King. His book ‘On Writing’ was a great help on my writing journey.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
It’s a Crime’/Thriller novel set in the Philippines. It highlights the violence and corruption endemic in the otherwise wonderful island. It follows the efforts of Senator Enrique Consuelo who will stop and nothing to become the President, But he has a lot of enemies and he hasn’t got time to kill them all!
