The C word
Covid. The first Daniel Owen book was published before we started to hear about a strange new virus taking hold in Wuhan, China. The other books were written and published as if the pandemic had not happened. The world has started to open up a bit since the first lockdown, but a lot of authors (me included) are writing as if it is going to be 2019 forever. It can't last. I read a lot of fiction, much of it not set in the here and now. But I can't help writing about now, and now means the pandemic. So expect to see Daniel grappling with this strange new world.
