 “Over the past fifteen years I’ve written in various forms a number of novels, simply for pleasure, but always with a dream of one day getting a book into print and launching a career in writing. However, life and all it throws at you, has always put obstacles in the way to progressing further than simply writing for my own enjoyment.

However, realising I wasn’t getting any younger - despite strangely trying to convince myself to the contrary - I set myself a target of finalising and publishing a novel in 2018, followed by one each year from there on.

In spite of obstacles hindering my progress, including the sudden death of one of my horses; whom I’d owned for over twenty years, I finally achieved one of my goal by publishing my debut novel - Spite!”

 “I’ve been very lucky to enjoy a wide range of equestrian activities all of my adult life, and have taken part in everything, from galloping around Fakenham Racecourse to Carriage Driving Trials. Being out alone with just your horse for company can be a great way to get some thinking time and inspiration.

 As a designer by trade, I have a very creative mind and keen and active imagination. When this vivid imagination is mixed with a dark sense of humour, it doesn’t take much to get things flowing!”

 “One of the equestrian sports I compete in is Carriage Driving Trials. Here you guide a horse through obstacles at speed; hoping you don’t hit any! In a way, it’s a bit like life. You have to know where you’re heading, keep moving as quick as you can and try your best to steer clear of the obstacles life puts in your path.”

 “One thing life has taught me is if you have a goal or ambition, stick at it. No matter how long it takes, or what gets in your way. Keep driving forward, avoid the obstacles life puts in your way, then hopefully, you’ll get there.

 “Now I’ve started down this road, I’m working hard to try to make a long term career in writing. I may never get onto the Sunday Times Best Seller list, but I thoroughly enjoy writing and plan to finally release the various novels I’ve held back on for many years to come, and hope a few other readers might also enjoy my dark and chilling style of writing. Luby , a unique, chilling, dark psychological thriller  is my second novel. I’m now working on my third, based around the controversial world of fox hunting. Watch this space!”

 Written by Gary James Daynes and published by Boxing Hare Publishing, both Luby & Spite! are available from Amazon as a paperback or e-book or further details can be found at Boxing Hare Publishing’s website at
