"Can I ask you one thing...why does it have to be you?"
My throat is dry but I manage to say the words clearly enough: "If I don't do it, who else will?"

An entire country has been lied to.

Silver Blackthorn was supposed to be one of the privileged few, chosen to serve and help rebuild a shattered nation.

Instead, she is a rebel.

Tales of her defiance have spread across the land. King Victor and the Minister Prime want her dead, the resistance groups are desperate for her help.

But Silver's friends and family are in dire jeopardy; hiding is no longer an option.

As her travels take her into the far reaches of an unknown land, she is forced to make new friends and hunt for new allegiances.

Final battle lines are being drawn. The time has come.

Then there's the hardest choice of all: Opie or Imrin.

What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?
Without wanting to spoil too much, there's a part in Resurgence where Silver walks herself into what she knows is a trap. All the odds are against her and it's a proper hole as a writer to figure out how she's going to get out of it.
Is anything in your book based on real-life experiences or purely all imagination?
Some of the places in the series are real but the rest is imagination.
What inspired you to write this book?
Boredom! I was on holiday but I'm bad at doing nothing. I need to be busy, so ended up sketching down a lot of notes for what turned out to be Reckoning, the first book in the Silver series.
Is there a particular author or book that influenced you in any way either as a child or an adult?
I used to read the Target-published Doctor Who paperbacks when I was growing up. I'd pick them up second-hand in charity shops and from libraries. I also liked comics, specifically Marvel and Spider-Man.
Do you have any advice to give to aspiring writers?
You have to write! Whether that's fiction or non-fiction, putting together plot notes, short stories, long stories, or whatever. Anything is improved with practice, so if you want to write, then write.
