Rex & Eddie Mysteries: The Soundtrack

Rex & Eddie Mysteries: The Soundtrack

Writing rituals really help to get me in the flow of writing. One of those rituals is to listen to the same thing every time I write a project. It lets my brain know it’s time to type some words. That’s why I have a soundtrack to write Rex & Eddie to.

When I visit my parent’s house my favourite place to write is in their conservatory, at night, when it rains. Being England there’s plenty of opportunity for a shower or two.  Now I live in Los Angeles there’s rarely a chance of rain so I play  while the sun beams through my windows.

As the sound of rain gets my brainwaves flowing I put on a playlist to set the mood. While writing Rex & Eddie novels I usually play a mash of thriller soundtracks and James Bond scores with some silly, offbeat tracks like The Pink Panther theme mixed in.

I wanted to share some of the tracks I’m currently writing Rex & Eddie to – which would also work as a soundtrack to the books if you like listening to music while reading.

So here’s a Spotify playlist for your listening – and reading – pleasure.

If you know similar music you’d recommend adding to my writing playlist, please let me know. I’d love to give it a listen.

Tragidoodles: A Review

Tragidoodles: A Review

My mate Ben Cameron (no relations) has a book coming out next week (Nov 3rd). I participated in crowd funding it so I got it early and it’s great. My Goodread’s review is below:



TragidoodlesTragidoodles by Ben Cameron
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 stars.

This book is great. The illustration style is cute, simple, and full of character. It’s the Ronseal of books, in that this is definitely a book of TRAGIC doodles. Some of them sank even my cold heart. Most will make you laugh and then feel guilty about it.

My favourite thing about this book is the way Ben Cameron brings life to simple things like leaves, or the bubbles in a carbonated drink. Each of these panels says something about life or what it means to be human.

Also, dogs! I enjoyed the dog doodles most. There’s just something about the way dogs want their owner’s complete love and attention which makes them so desperate. Ben’s portrayals of dogs are perfect.

There’s quite a few dead animals spread throughout the book which I found less clever than the other doodles, but there are one-hundred doodles in here of which I throughly enjoyed ninety.

Leave this book on your coffee table and ruin/make your guest’s day.
