Martin Geraghty is the latest Crooked Cat Books author to be featured in this 6Ws series. A real life P.I. who lives in Scotland, his likes to write, as he puts it, about human beings.
May 10 is a big day for Martin as his debut novel, A Mind Polluted, officially launches. I pre-ordered my copy a long time ago.
Here are his responses to my 6Ws — who, what, when, where, how, and why. (How does end with a W.)
Who is author Martin Geraghty?
I am a 45-year-old private investigator from Glasgow, Scotland. Lover of books, food, wine, golf and laughter.
What does he write?
I write about human beings, their flaws, how one person reacts to a specific set of circumstances and another reacts completely differently.
When did he start writing?
I began in June 2016.
How does he write?
When writing, A Mind Polluted, my routine was to get my six-year-old boy to bed, switch my laptop on and write for as long as possible. Simple as that. Just write.
Where does he write?
I have a favourite black recliner leather chair with a stool that I position to look out of my lounge bay window and my view is mostly the sky.
Why does he write?
I love story-telling. I love to explore the various aspects of how we behave.

A Mind Polluted, is the story of a boy who at thirteen years old overhears a terrible confession from his mother’s lips which sets a series of events in motion. Can you leave the past in the past and concentrate on his future? Or will he seek his own perceived version of justice?
