Welcome one and welcome all to my little hairy blog for my #Fahrenbruary Question and Answer post with the most excellent Paul Gadsby, author of “Back Door To Hell“, that book up there.

What do you mean ‘up where?’

Up there! That sodding great red and black picture; the one that has the book’s title splashed all over it.

Ohhh, now you see it do you? Tsk, some people just don’t look before commenting. 🙄

Okay, now we have that sorted, please scroll beyond the break for some enlightenment from Paul as to his inspiration for his two young protagonists in BDTH and to discover what his favourite biscuit is.

Oh, you can find my review of this most excellent book right…… HERE.

Enjoy 😁

#Fahrenbruary Guest Post: Couples On The Run who inspired Back Door To Hell, by Paul Gadsby. @PaulJGadsby @FarenheitPress

Hello you lovely, lovely people, and a very warm welcome to my little beardy blog.

How are you all doing? Really? Well I hope that that clears up very soon. Otherwise all okay? Excellent.

Now, in case you didn’t know, #Fahrenbruary is in full swing; the month long celebration of all things Fahrenheit Press and Fahrenheit 13. Yesterday (if you’ve been following along sequentially) I posted my review of Back Door To Hell, a gritty, tense, couples on the run noir thriller by Paul Gadsby.

Here, via the magic of the internet, is a link to that very review…. LINK.

It’s clever that, innit?

A little while ago I asked Paul Gadsby to write me a piece about what inspired him to write BDTH. And do you know what? He agreed and did…. did.

So, dear reader read on as Paul discusses his favourite novels featuring a couple on the run that inspired his new noir thriller…

Back Door To Hell – Paul Gadsby @PaulJGadsby @F13Noir @FahrenheitPress #Fahrenbruary

Panting like Usain Bolt after sprinting 100 metres in record time into a particularly strong headwind, you finally stop running and reach the agreed meeting place. Your partner in this particular crime (is it a crime, to steal from the crooks? That’s one that’s going to keep you up tonight) has not arrived yet. Did she escape from your pursuers? Maybe it wasn’t so wise to split up after all, but you could hardly help it as dithering over whether to go left or right at the chip shop could’ve ended up with you both caught and then…. you shudder at the thought of that!

Oh, you really are in the doo-doo now. What were you thinking? After all it wasn’t your idea to steal from one of the biggest, most insane, maniacal crime lords in London. The next time someone asks you if you want to listen to their ‘get-rich-quick’ scheme just tell them to sod off and carry on drying up the glasses behind the bar. Like, seriously.

You tit.

But, at least you have one of the bags of money. Strangely it doesn’t feel as heavy as you expected. You’d have thought that around one hundred grand in cash would be heavier? Whilst you wait, hope, that she arrives in one piece, you decide to have a peek inside the sports bag.

Your heart drops through your stomach.

There’s no cash inside the bag. What? How? You clearly saw the cash being stuffed inside the two bags by your accomplice whilst you were distracting the gang. Wait, but then you turned around for just a short while before making a bolt for the door.

She’s given you a dud and made off with all the cash. The cheeky….

All you are left with, as you start to laugh and cry at the same time, is a bag full of paper.

Paper with just a worthless blurb written over and over and over again:

 

Boy meets girl. Girl has a plan. A plan that’ll change everything.

Nate and Jen are two working class kids looking for a chance to leave behind their dreary, minimum wage lives forever.

Jen has figured out a way to change everything, she just needs a little help to pull it off. That’s where Nate comes in.

She’s got it all planned. In and out before anyone notices, nobody gets hurt and finally they can start living the lives they always imagined. A simple heist, even for amateurs like them.

The problem is local crime lord Crawford is not an amateur. Not by a long chalk. Jen & Nate have stolen his money and more importantly they’ve damaged his reputation. He intends to get both back. No matter what the cost.
