Vlog

Words & Pictures Of Note!

 

On this page, I'll be posting my latest vlog - pretty much about anything and everything, with perhaps a little 'author-is' bit in. I'll be using this opportunity to engage with you guys in a way that you can get to know me as a person rather than just through my books. I'm hoping you'll share you ideas and thoughts with me, and who knows, maybe get one of your suggestions in to one of my plots?

Pop back here in the next few days, as the first Vlog, all about the first of my own paranormal experiences will be posted here soon!

So Who Is This?

 

I R Backhouse has been writing since he was in his early teens, and at first, it was always as a hobby. Life took many different turns over the coming years, and he had a career first as a professional drummer, then spent ten years in the Metropolitan Police Service, an experience he often draws on in his fiction, and continued to hone his craft during that time. When he left the service in 2005, he began teaching drums and continued his passion for writing. Finally, in 2020 the time felt right to take things the next level: he wrote Beneath The Dark, during lockdown, his fourth novel and submitted the book to agents and publishers, the first time he had ever done so. To his amazement, within two weeks, publishers Cranthorpe Millner requested his full manuscript after reacting very favourably to the sample chapters. Two weeks on, and he was signing his first publishing contract with them. The 'new James Herbert' had arrived...'
