Dexter
Eight weeks old and really dark!

I’m head down still with the first draft of my new book – two-thirds done, phew.

It’s often lonely working from home all day. There’s no office banter (okay, I have Twitter), there are no cakes to tempt me (but I do have a biscuit tin) and I don’t have anyone to chat to… but I do have someone to listen. Dexter.

Before we brought Dexter home, I asked for people to come up with a good name for him. I wanted something to reflect the genre that I write most in – crime thriller. These were some of the suggestions that made the list:

How I am now – hanging out in Mum’s office

Sherlock
Brodie (as in Jackson)
Jackson (as in Brodie)
Jackson (as in Dave)
Thorne (as in Tom Thorne)
Dexter (as in Morgan)
Harper (as in Collins – publishers)
Rebus
Morse
PJ (as in Peter James)
Theakston

We finally agreed on Dexter, as in Dexter Morgan, TV serial killer  – or Dex when shortened. I thought I’d share parts of the real life of Dexter with you:
