Binary Witness: One Year On

Yesterday, I turned 28 in Cairo. Today, Binary Witness is one year old! Yes, it is one year ago to the day that the first book in The Amy Lane Mysteries was published. The result of a Twitter pitch that led to a book deal, Binary Witness introduced readers to Amy Lane, Jason Carr and the criminals of Cardiff, Wales. Alas, I am currently in Egypt with little access to the internet.

Using the hashtag #1AmyLane, tell your friends why you love The Amy Lane Mysteries. Is it the thrill of a cyber crime chase? Is it the dark side of that wonderful city, Cardff?
