Backstory is a book-length companion piece to the Pompey-based D/I Joe Faraday series.  Think "Extra Features" on a movie DVD.  I wrote Backstoryin response to trillions of conversations and e-mail exchanges with readers keen to find out more about the books.  Where did they come from in the first place?  Why do they feel so real,  so authentic?  How do you get to invent characters like Joe Faraday and Paul Winter?  And what does it really take to turn the small print of sharp-end CID work into page-turning drama?  I'd like to think that this is a must-read for anyone touched by the Faraday series.  Plus a practitioner's guide to making any kind of living as a writer.  See what you think...and then let me know.
