Unfinished Business by S C Cunningham @SCCunningham @rararesources #GuestPost #Giveaway

Unfinished Business

Unfinished Business

He loved being him… he got away with murder.

She loved being her… until she met him.

The steamy roller coaster ride of psychotic David’s obsession with his childhood sweetheart, a skilled mix of fuelled tension, dark humour and pulsating sex scenes.

With the help of her gutsy friends, fun-loving city girl Tara Warr is the only victim to survive David Howard’s death list. Whilst lounging in prison the hypnotic sexual tour de force enlists an eager recruit, seduces a prison warden and relocates to the sunnier climes of Mexico, a freedom short-lived when his charred remains are found in the fire of a plastic surgeon’s clinic. The police cease their search, finally Tara and her friends can relax, David is dead.

Laughter soon turns to fear when he communicates via Tara’s laptop that he is very much alive, knows their every move and is ready to finish what he started. He is among them, but who? He has a brand new face.

Tara has had enough, time to turn the tables and make him suffer.  A woman unafraid of death is a dangerous thing. Has David finally met his match?

British Author S C Cunningham (The Penance List, Unfinished Business and The Deal) creates psychological and paranormal thrillers with a skilled mix of fueled tension, dark humor, and pulsating sex scenes. Her works offer a fresh level of sincerity and authority, rare in fiction.

This personal journey sparked the fuse behind the intriguing and riveting fictional world she portrays in The Deal, the first in the Fallen Angel Series. Twenty years later she crossed paths with a violent serial attacker, thus sowing the seed for her thrillers The Penance List and Unfinished Business part of The David Trilogy. She is currently working on Book III For My Sins.

An ex-model, British born of Irish roots, she married a rock musician and has worked in the exciting worlds of rock music, film, sports celebrity management and as a Crime Investigator for the Police – Wanted & Absconder Unit, Intelligence Analyst, Major Crime Team, Investigations Hub.

Q & A

Working in Crime, my writing routine and favourite book.

Three questions that people regularly ask are; what’s it like working in crime, what’s my writing routine and what’s my favourite book? Well, here you go.

Crime Work

When not writing thrillers I’m a Police Crime Investigator.  Over the years I’ve worked within the Wanted & Absconder Unit, Major Crime Team, Intel Analyst, and Investigations Hub.

The work is a mix of thought provoking, exhausting, soul lifting and heart breaking emotions. Some images never leave you. The wave of crime that Officers protect us all from 24/7 is frightening, but when a victim is given justice it’s heart-warming, worth every second.

Those brave, hardworking men and women (fathers, mothers, sons, daughters) who walk daily into unknown dangerous situations deserve a medal.

I sometimes wish the public knew more of the struggle behind the scenes that they face. But, I’ve signed the Official Secrets Act so am (quite rightly) unable to talk about cases I’ve worked on, so I’ll shut up now.  

Strangely I’ve found that the two jobs, writing and investigating, help each other. They have a synchronicity, a similar thought process but with a reverse order of events.

  • Writing crime – creates the characters, builds the storyline, ends with a crime scene and police sirens.
  • Investigating crime – starts with sirens, assesses a crime scene, unravels the storyline and detects the characters.

My crime work teaches me to be open to hearing both sides of a situation, not everyone arrested is guilty, it’s my job to find and prove the truth. Having an open exploring mind is a good trait when writing.

Writing Routine.

Writing is probably not good for my health. I eat rubbish quick-fix food, get back-ache from sitting too much and become mushroom-like reclusive.

I tend to back out of the world and everything that’s going on around me for days before, emptying my over-zealous mind, to fill it again with another world – that of my current storyline.

On a writing day, I take the dogs for a beach walk, strolling via the back roads to avoid conversations that take me out of the zone. Am sponge-like and easily drawn into chatting with folk; local villagers and dog walkers are a lovely friendly bunch and I can’t resist saying ‘hello’.

On the beach I start the process of thinking about scenes for the day’s writing. My work tends to have complicated spaghetti storylines which I need to be on top of – tough on an old dumb-blonde bird like me.

I get home, try to do a few minutes on a rowing machine, then set the scene of my writing room; smelly candles/incense, calming music, good lighting, cosy warmth, nibbley easy-to-pick-at computer food and plenty of drinks.

The dogs, exhausted from their walk, sleep at my feet. It’s nice to have another heart beat in the room, writing can be lonely.

I sit at the computer for between 5 to 8 hours, depending how well it’s going, and then log off with a celebratory glass of vino or a cheeky gin and tonic.

Favourite Book.

That’s easy. Lee Child’s Jack Reacher Series. I adore Reacher, such a wonderful character.

If I was a bloke I’d love to live his simple lifestyle. No baggage, traveling with just a toothbrush and credit card, great intelligence, people skills and the strength of an ox – awesome!

I can’t quite forgive Child for selling out to Tom Cruise – Mr Cruise is lovely am sure, but he’s no Jack Reacher.

I also love the works of Agatha Christie, Martina Cole, Michael Connelly, James Patterson, Patricia Cornwell, Colin Dexter, Harlan Coben, John Grisham,  Nora Roberts, Karin Slaughter, David Baldacci.

Thank you for joining us.
