Robert De Niro was recently in a movie with me. It’s called The Killer Elite, loosely based on the book by Sir Ranulph Fiennes. Most of my scenes are now, thankfully, on the cutting room floor. Here’s what remains (I’m the one with the blonde hair).
The cake was a beautiful surprise; a replica of a vintage Smith Corona typewriter I recently bought out of pure nostalgia for the days when writers went click click clack clackety clack. It had rice paper scattered around it with sections from Blackout written upon said rice paper. Thus rendering me able to eat my own words.
Author Tracy Williams has received a bursary from Literature Wales to write her second novel under the working title of Insomnia: Doctors & Drug Dealers. The bursary is for a six month period, during which time Tracy hopes to produce a first draft of 120,000 words. She has been researching the novel for the past three years. The story is loosely based on personal experience of chronic insomnia.
