Autobiography for Quais du Polar

When I’m not writing I like to be outside, spending days in the glacier-carved, white-granite canyons of Utah, on the delicate sandstone towers of the deserts, sharing beer and stories with friends around a campfire, all the climbing done for the day.

Crime favourites

book : Neuromancer, William Gibson
movie Double Indemnity, Billy Wilder or maybe the original Bladerunner, Ridley Scott.. Tough call.
