Well here it is. Confessions of a Reviewer’s first ever attempt at a video interview. I’m so glad it was Jason Parent. This guy put himself on the line with this one. He was prepared to answer anything that was thrown at him, and I mean anything!

Giving the logistics of trying to pin someone down who is three thousand miles away from me, this had the potential to turn into a nightmare. I must thank Jason for his patience while some technical difficulties where ironed out and also for giving up his time for what turned into a very long night. It was, however, a night full of answers that will give you all you need to know about Jason’s new book Seeing Evil, his life and writing in general and of course the fun side of Jason where he put his very existence on the line in the 18+ section.

When you watch this you will see a warning pop up on screen. There is a section that is definitely not for delicate ears but I have to say will give you a lot of laughs if you can take it.

One other person I must give a huge thanks to (and a big Amazon voucher) is my 13 year old son Alex. I recorded the interview in sections. Alex sat last night and spent three hours editing it and putting it together for me. There was a problem with his normal software of choice and he had to download a different programme to enable him to do this. He learnt the programme in about fifteen minutes and set to work. All of the title pages, graphics, music and joining all the sections together was done by him. He is a little genius. Love ya kiddo.

Nothing else to say…………..enjoy!

In his head, Jason Parent lives in many places, but in the real world, he calls New England his home. The region offers an abundance of settings for his writing and many wonderful places in which to write them. He currently resides in South-eastern Massachusetts with his cuddly corgi named Calypso.

In a prior life, Jason spent most of his time in front of a judge . . . as a civil litigator.

When he finally tired of Latin phrases no one knew how to pronounce and explaining to people that real lawsuits are not started, tried and finalized within the 60-minute timeframe they see on TV (it's harassing the witness; no one throws vicious woodland creatures at them), he traded in his cheap suits for flip flops and designer stubble. The flops got repossessed the next day, and he's back in the legal field . . . sorta. But that's another story.

You can see more of Jason at his website.
