A welcome message from Darren Hanton.
Welcome to my new website. There are other places that feature my work but this is my official website. I want it to be useful, a place where you can find information and a source of help and inspiration. In the life of a writer sometimes lots of things happen all at once (and sometimes nothing happens at all). I have created this webpage to communicate with you all and share some news about my life as a writer. You can follow my work, read my blog and the latest news about me on this website. If you don't find what you're looking for amongst these pages feel free to contact me. I hope you enjoy this website and thanks for visiting!
"Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand."
- George Orwell
"The secret of getting ahead is getting started."
- Mark Twain
"The greatest part of a writer's time is spent in reading, in order to write; a man will turn over half a library to make one book."
- Samuel Johnson
"Once the story is right, everything else will follow. Rewriting is like falling off a log, the hard work is getting the story."
- Bernard Cornwell
"There is no job in the world quite as enjoyable as that of being a writer."
