Rebirth is a horror/thriller novel that I wrote between August 2005 and August 2006. I was inspired to write it while lying by the pool on holiday, reading a novel by a well-known thriller writer and not really enjoying it. I thought to myself: “I could do this type of thing - it can't be that hard.”

Those who know me know that I’m a big fan of the movies so it won’t be a surprise that the idea for Rebirth came from an idea for a movie I had. A few years ago I took a course in Film Studies at night school and one of the assignments was to draft storyboards for an original film. The storyboards I drew were the opening to the film (chapters 2 and 3 in the novel) and from that point I kept putting ideas down until I had a plan from beginning to end.

After finishing the aforementioned novel, I started on my first opus and kept plugging away at it every now and again until it was in a state that felt like I could let people read it. A few friends read it and seemed to like it so I sent it off to some publishers and agents but I quickly tired of waiting for the standard "thanks but no thanks" letter so I’ve decided to serialise it in this blog. That way I can get on with writing the follow-up (maybe a little spoiler there?). If anyone chooses to read it, great. If not, at least it’s online so I can point anyone towards it who is unfortunate enough to ask me what I do in my spare time.

I hope you enjoy reading Rebirth and comments (both positive and constructively negative) are always welcome
