Advice for writers?
The more you do it, the better you become. Nothing improves your writing more than just sitting down and doing it.
And read, read, read. Explore the genre you plan to write in. Study and analyze what the really good authors are doing, and how they are doing it.
Oh, and to quote thriller author Michael Ridpath: Have fun.
What does Deon read?
He reads everything - from J.M. Coetzee to William Gibson, Michael Connelly, Robert Harris, Ian Rankin, Lee Child, Stephen King, Michael Ridpath, John Sandford, George P. Pelecanos, Douglas Kennedy, Mark Bowden, Anthony Beavor, to name but a few ...
And the great masters: John D. MacDonald, Ed McBain, John le Carré, Frederick Forsyth, Ted Allbeury, Robert B. Parker ...
He can't get enough of Stephen Pinker, love biographies, history, science and travel writing. And he's a news junkie.
Will he write my story?
Deon says making up his own stories is too much fun. So thanks, but no, thanks.
Will he read my work?
Unfortunately, he gets so many similar requests that he simply does not have the time.
In what order should I read his books?
It is more fun to read them in the order they were written, but it's not essential.
