A Child to save.
A Killer to catch.
Tommy Connell’s playing with the bad guys again, but this time the rules have changed...and he still hasn’t learned to play nice!
Connell’s keeping the wolf from the door, rooting out bad cops for his buddy Gerry Gesting. He’s handed in his badge, turned his back on all that, but...
When a weird little kid disappears into the night and no one gives a damn including the cops, he reckons that maybe someone should take another look.
The good cops are busy hunting down a serial killer...good.
The bad cops are busy hunting down Connell...not so good.
The serial killer, well he’s looking for victim number twelve, which is... definitely not good.
And little Molly Brown is about to throw an almighty spanner in the works.
Connell’s dabbling in things that he shouldn’t and it’s not the first time...

Feb 20th Interview Molly Brown – Janiera Books & Beauty
1. What made you choose to write in the Genre that you write in?
I write in various genres, but fast paced crime thrillers are my favourite read and therefore top of my list to write. I also include a romantic element in all my novels, as a side dish to the main course.
2. What is your favorite thing about the writing experience and why?
I love creating characters, and an environment that allows them to grow and evolve. Quite often the characters lead me in the opposite direction to my original plan.
3. How do you handle bad reviews?
All reviews are subjective. Bad reviews sting, but have to be taken in context. Some people will enjoy my work and others won’t and that’s okay. The more books you sell the wider the range of opinion. Bad reviews can actually be helpful in pointing out something that may have been overlooked, but some reviewers do like to vent and you just have to rise above it.
4. When you write, do you write for a long period of time or do you write in short burst?
I work part time so I write when time allows and the muse hits me. Generally I write long into the night.
5. Where did your inspiration for this book come from?
Molly Brown is the second book in a series. I wanted to progress the characters that were created in the first book, Mrs Jones. As a mother, I was also intrigued by the world some children create for themselves when overwhelmed by life. I liked the parallel between Molly’s obsession with The Wizard of Oz and Connell’s loss of courage and self belief.
6. What is your favorite author and why?
I enjoy the work of many authors, but in the crime genre my favourite has to John Connelly. I like the development of his hero Charlie Parker and the hint of the supernatural that whispers through the series.
7. What words of advice would you give to aspiring authors?
Write what you enjoy reading. Have belief in what you’ve created. Accept advice but remember it’s your story. Have fun…and edit!
8. What is your favorite character in your book and why?
Tommy Connell is a good guy who tries to do the right thing, but has a tendency to get on the wrong side of authority. He is fiercely loyal to his friends and family and so in love with Lizzie there is nothing he wouldn’t do for her. However, he is human and there are elements of his past which gradually surface as the series progresses.
9. If your book was turned into a movie, who would you want to direct it?
Tony Gilroy, the director of The Bourne Legacy. I just love the fast pace and twisty turny plot…and Jeremy Renner would make a pretty fine Connell too.
10. What is your favorite movie?
Breakfast at Tiffany’s…Audrey Hepburn - just wonderful!
11. Is there another hobby you have that you would like to share?
I’m quite creative and when time allows enjoy making dolls houses to my own designs. I make everything from the hand carved roof tiles to the window frames and fire surrounds. I’ve also just started a medieval themed wall hanging. It’s a new venture, all hand stitched, I’m not sure I have the patience or indeed the time to complete it, but we shall see.
12. Where do you see yourself in five years?
Hopefully, writing full time.
13. Coffee or Tea?
Tea…and chocolate biscuits!
