As you can see Charlie Brown keeps me company when I write. And if you take a closer look, Pinocchio hangs on the side of the pen rack. It’s a keychain I got from Italy. Well, the truth is Charlie was feeling lonely, so I gave him a friend. Don’t think they get along much, looking at Pinocchio’s body language.
I’ve cleaned up the desk a bit, otherwise, you’ll be seeing a sea of appears, pages and pages of manuscripts. I’ve just completed a thriller, Gun Kiss, which is scheduled to be released on 1 December. No, I didn’t throw away the manuscript but kept it in a file. Who knows? Something it might have some value on eBay.
I chose to put my desk in front of a wall because having a view would distract me from the writing as I have a tendency to daydream a lot. Besides, I dislike talking to the birds outside the window too long. They take up too much of my time. And what’s with the pink wall? Well, I was in a Mediterranean mood a while back, but I don’t think the color came out right. Been too lazy to repaint it. Any suggestions for a colour?
And the handmade brown notebook is where I keep all my notes, including sprung up words in my head that I might use later.

About the Book : :
When the Deringer pistol that shot Abraham Lincoln is stolen and ends up in the hands of a Russian military general, covert agent Blake Deco is tasked by the FBI to head to the Balkans to recover the historical weapon. Meanwhile, the United States media is abuzz with news of the mysterious disappearance of Hollywood movie star, Goldie St. Helen.
After Blake’s return from overseas, he receives a tip from a Mexican friend that a drug lord, obsessed with the beautiful actress, is holding her captive in Tijuana. With the help of a reluctant army friend, Blake mounts a daring rescue. What he doesn’t expect is to have feelings for Goldie—or that a killer is hunting them.
