I’m in Alaska researching my fourth Rake Ozenna thriller to be called ICE ISLANDS. The third, MAN ON FIRE, is out July 6th and I dropped by a lovely, small book shop, cafe called Writer’s Block owned by Vered Mares and with bookseller, barista and incredible local D.J. Dave Curtis. Writer’s Block has pulled through the pandemic and is now going from strength to strength. Amazon is great. But, wherever you are and if it’s possible, please get books from your local bookstore and help keep communities and conversations alive.
