Book Overview

To former dressmaker Chloe Westfield, the touch of silk is akin to nightmare – sparking ghostly visions she’d rather forget, just like her troubled past. But when a box outside her door reveals a silk swatch in teal blue, she finds herself dragged into the tragic fate of a young woman. A trail that leads Chloe back to her hometown … and close to a brand name: 

SCISSOR SISTER                  

An SS monogram beneath a pair of gleaming scissors, and within the blades open wide, a woman’s face with watching eyes… 

No one knows who she is. 

No one knows the obsessive design she cloaks, all while quietly removing the obstacles that stand in her path…

Interview With The Author

David, thanks for being with us today. Congratulations on your upcoming novel! We’re excited to jump into this interview, so let’s get to it!
Can you give us a few autobiographical words?

Born in France of an Irish-Catalan mother and a French dad with Canadian roots. Now living in Watford with his British partner, he sometimes sees himself as an “international bastard”.

Do you have any formal education, credentials or honors you’d like to share? We love giving authors an opportunity to show off.

  • HND in Interior Design & Interior Architecture-The Design Ecademy (TDE)
  • University of Paris X Nanterre-BA in LEA (French, English & Spanish Translation) – (Paris X Nanterre)
  • College of St Therese D’Avila in Lille (France)- A levels (Baccalaureat B)


Speaking of showing off, do you have bragging rights on anything that you’d like to share?

I speak three languages and a half (I didn’t stay long enough with my Italian partner to learn the other half).

Why do you I write. Is there a philosophy behind the words?

I tend to only write what’s truly meaningful to me. Writing is a cathartic and healing process through which I speak my own truth. Although Cold Dresses is by no means autobiographical, it’s based on themes that played an important part at one point or another in my life. 


Can you share with our readers what your favorite books are and why they’re on your list?

I tend to read more psychological thrillers than mysteries. My favourite author is Gillian Flynn. Sharp Objects is definitely a favourite of mine!

Can you tell us a little about your writing style?

I don’t like florid language. I wouldn’t say my writing is sparse but I usually avoid long, unnecessary descriptions. Saying that, I could do with grounding the reader more into the story at times.

What’s your writing process like?

I’m a slow writer going through bouts of procrastination and struggling to stick to a daily word count. Saying that, I constantly think about ways to improve the story until I reach a place that feels “true”. That’s when the words start to flow, but I have to peel off a lot of layers to reach that place. My weakness is my incapacity to write anything meaningful if I don’t “feel it”. My strength is probably a strong ability to navigate an intricate, complex plot.

Do you have any Professional & Literary Affiliations:

I subscribed to Jericho Writers last October.

What are you working to accomplish?

It’s a difficult question to answer. The fact I’m soon to become a traditionally published writer is a dream come true for me. Healing is an important part of the process. Ultimately you hope your writing can entertain people as much as it can touch them. And make them think too!

Do you have any works in-progress?

Nothing tangible yet, but I’m determined to start work on my second novel this year. Either that or write a short story.

What are some fun facts about Cold Dresses?

  • No mothers were harmed during the writing of Cold Dresses
  • I sometimes imagine Scissor Sister as Donald Trump in a wig. Fleshing out her character was a lot of fun; it certainly helped me cope with the sad state of the world. 
  • Cold Dresses was initially named A Pattern to Die For, with a rather humorous first draft but zero tension throughout. The whole thing was an absolute mess!

Anything else yo’d like to let our readers know about you?

I doubt myself all the time but I’m very determined. I get knocked down, but I get up again.
