AUTHOR INTERVIEW


What is something unique/quirky about you?
I think in reality I’m quite boring! Probably about the only real quirk that I’ve got is that I’m left handed. I don’t just write with my left hand though, I am hopelessly left handed, left footed, left everything. I can’t even use scissors or a tin opener unless they’re left handed versions!

Tell us something really interesting that's happened to you!
I once had the opportunity to meet Prince William at a reception. The problem was that there was free wine at the reception. I don’t usually drink wine, and by the time I got to meet the prince the only thing I could think of to ask him was whether he played Call of Duty on the X-Box. He said that he did, but when I asked him for him gamer tag so we could be friends, he just laughed.

What are some of your pet peeves?
I can be really, really pedantic about things. Grammar is one of them – I get annoyed when there’s a missing apostrophe in a shop sign, or queuing up in the ‘9 Items or Less’ checkout in the supermarket (it should be ‘9 items or Fewer’). Now on the subject of supermarkets, with the self-checkouts, why is it when you put a bag in the bagging area, it says ‘unexpected item in bagging area’? It’s a bag? What is the machine expecting??

Where were you born/grew up at?
My parents moved around a lot, so everywhere really. I’ve lived in loads of places, mostly in the south of England, and that’s where I went to school.

If you knew you'd die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day?
A few years ago, I’d have said in a drink and drug fuelled haze! These days though, it would have to be with my family.

Who is your hero and why?
The late, great Stephen Hawkins would definitely be one of them. What a brilliant man, and to what he did in the face of such adversity is remarkable.

What kind of world ruler would you be?
I would like to be a cross between Winston Churchill and Boudicca. Both of them stood up against tyrannical regimes for the best of reasons, despite the hundreds and hundreds of years between them.

What are you passionate about these days?
My two main passions in life are my family (including the dog – I’ve got a black and tan daschund), and football (or soccer as some other countries seem to call it!)

What do you do to unwind and relax?
Well, I enjoy writing, obviously! Editing less so! If I really to empty my head, I go running. I’m a keen distance runner, up to marathon level (but I’m not competitive). Running is great for thinking. No phones, no visitors, no arguments – just one foot in front of the other.

How to find time to write as a parent?
I’m actually quite lucky in that respect because I work away from home during the week in my regular job, so I have plenty of time in the evenings to write without other responsibilities to think about.

When did you first consider yourself a writer?
I’ve only been writing seriously for the last year or so. I wrote one novel which will never be published, more to prove to myself that I could write something of that length. The book itself is confined to a drawer. I know it’s a cliché, but most writers will have cut their teeth in this way. Once I knew I had the endurance to write at novel length, I started on Blind Justice.

Do you have a favorite movie?
That one’s easy – True Romance. A bit of an oldie now, but what a fantastic story and cast!

Which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?
I could see Blind Justice as a movie perhaps, although it would perhaps suit the small screen better. My next book, Meat, is much more likely to look good on the big screen.


Blind Justice
by Nathan Burrows
Genre: Legal Thriller

Gareth Dawson is an innocent man. Not a murderer. His main problem is that the British justice system doesn’t agree with him.
He might be a reformed thief guilty of many things in his past, but not murder. In the space of a few short months, he's gone from being married to the woman of his dreams to facing a life sentence.
Inside Her Majesty’s Prison Whitemoor, a Category A prison in Cambridgeshire, Gareth’s got all the time in the world to go over the events that led to the guilty verdict. The guilty verdict which cost him everything in the world that he loved. 
His dignity. His freedom. His wife.
Gareth is approached by a lawyer, Paul Dewar, who claims to have information that will vindicate Gareth. But is it enough to set him free? As threats against Gareth increase on the inside, Paul Dewar’s challenge, and Gareth’s fight for freedom, begins.





Nathan Burrows is a writer based in Norfolk in the United Kingdom. His debut novel, Blind Justice, was published in March 2018.

Nathan's a keen reader as well as a writer. He occasionally runs marathons, has a Norwich City football club season ticket, and is the proud part-owner of a Daschund puppy called Bertie. 

His current work in progress is tentatively called ‘Meat’, and is a dark post-Brexit comedy. It’s currently scheduled to be released in the autumn.
