Jack Byrne discusses The Liverpool Mystery series

Image
Welcome to mystery author Jack Byrne!

I am married with two kids and although I was born and raised in an Irish catholic family in Liverpool UK, I now live in Hungary. I had no career as such, most working people don’t, we move from job to job, if we are lucky we have a skill, but still move from job to job. I have done everything from factory work, to setting up and running my own businesses, some more successful than others.  I currently run a small English language school in a lovely town set around a lake. I gained a Bachelor's degree in English at the age of forty, when I left school at sixteen I had no qualifications.

I am two and half books into the four novels that make up The Liverpool Mystery Series, each can be read independently, but reading all of them will help you get more out of each one. The first book I wrote was Under The Bridge set in Garston, Liverpool. I am currently querying that with agents and publishers so am holding off on self publishing it.

I had the pleasure of not only reviewing this book, but meeting the author who is a really great guy! I have to say I can easily see this book as a movie…

Tyron Shaw's return to Las Vegas after his stint in the military brings the consequences of the choices he and his circle of friends to the surface.

(as well as attending future events!)

Welcome to today's featured author Lancelot Schaubert!

Tell us about your life outside of writing.
I'm an artist chaplain in NYC who makes it easier for people to make what they feel called to make. We use grants, community development, and intense human resources inserted into hyper concentrated weekends to bolster portfolios and create time for projects that wouldn't get greenlit via traditional funding or production. We're also there for counseling and therapy.  NYC is insane during covid, but so are a ton of places. Doing everything we can through the literary journal to support neighbors and artists. My bride's a knitter and is teaching me to knat, but she also makes things. Have a big, rowdy family mostly based in Illinois (a la BELL HAMMERS). I watch film when I can, but mostly read — particularly through the classics. Love tea. Will travel. Send soup and juggling circus bears.
Do you have a work in progress? Several. I'm working on a horror novel that's …
