I was living in Cairns at the time I began writing Dead Tropics. It is a city hemmed by tropical jungles on one side and creamy beaches on the other. I had just celebrated my birthday and I was finally ready to tackle this project that had been lurking at the back of my mind for a long time.
I sat down in my favourite chair in my lounge room, laptop on my lap, and looked out of the window at the lush, green hills and knew that I had to set this story in this lovely town. Where else could I fit in jungle, beaches, rivers, crocodiles and zombies!
After work, I usually write for a couple of hours in my bedroom. I work on the theory that if my family can't see me, they will let me write in peace. The theory seems to have some flaws...
