Thriller writer, Tony Schumacher joined us this week. Tony has inspiration by the bucket-load and his journey to publication is one of the most interesting and funny stories you will hear.
Tony has already fitted many lives and jobs in to his time, only adding ‘Writer’ well in to his 40’s, after a chance meeting with a journalist in his taxi cab. It was his time in the police that gave him some of the background for his books.
‘I think people can over-complicate Writing . . .’
Tony is self-taught and a natural born story-teller. He loves to write by the seat of his pants and for him, discovery is the most enjoyable part of his work. His two tips for successful writing are ‘to write everyday’ and ‘to always stop writing before you want to stop – that way, you’ll always be raring to return to the page.’
Tony was a funny, entertaining and inspiring guest and his debut novel ‘The Darkest Hour’ is out now on Harper Collins, with the follow up ‘The British Lion’ released October 27th in the US, and December 3rd for UK readers. Follow him on Twitter and take a look at his website.
