Last of the V8s – influences

I remember feeling quite sick when I saw the original Mad Max (1979) a long time ago. I was in my early teens. Spoiler alert – I wasn’t ready for the scene when Max’ wife and child are killed, even though I am sure it is almost acceptable afternoon viewing today. But the blue, red and yellow Ford Falcon Interceptor, and the black V8 were just magic. Of course, Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) blew me away – I had to take my wife, Jane, to see it, so that she would at least have a frame of reference for what I was babbling about for the next few months.

But what’s this all about? Well, Pulp Driver is coming out soon, and I just wanted to say that it’s been a blast trying to translate a car chase scene from the screen to the page. I do have a male main character – Noah Lee, but the rest of the cast, including Mad Maddy Ryan the traffic cop, are all women. If car chases on the streets of Sydney, Australia are your thing, you might want to check it out.

Meanwhile, I’ve got to go and give the text a tune-up.
