Hello! J M Shorney

5 Questions to Know You Better…

Perhaps most important – tea or coffee, or maybe hot chocolate?


Of all the characters you have created, who is your favourite?

It has to be Aidan McRaney!

Do you have a particular place where you write –  can you show us a picture?

I have an office in my spare bedroom where I can focus, relax and write.

Where do you find your inspiration and ideas?

Sometimes I’ll see a snippet in a newspaper that will inspire me. I once penned an entire novel on the strength of a headline in a Sunday newspaper! Occasionally a book title will inspire me to write my own work, or even a painting. The series I’m currently writing is inspired by Poldark and its actor Aidan Turner.  A mural on a wall in Whitechapel, London inspired a scene in my novel ‘Night Of All Evil’ too.

What are you working on currently, and when can we expect to read it?

As so much has happened in my life my son suggested I should write my memoirs, which I am currently working on! I’m also writing a Historical Romance, ‘Gallows Hill’, about a young law student in London, summoned home to find his father dying and his house and lands forfeit to his unscrupulous cousin in a card game. When the young man attempts to reclaim his home he is beaten to within an inch of his life.  Found by a notorious highwayman, he enlists his help in reclaiming his home.


The books are still being written and edited, so more details will be revealed soon!
