I love that your stories centre around Africa in one way or another. Also, mentioning Malawi several times made my reading experience so much more enjoyable. Thank you so much z

I've just finished Dark Places and Beasts of New York. You are an amazing storyteller. I can't put my phone down. Starting Invisible Armies right now. I hope you write novels for decades to come.

Most stuff I get from Wattpad are drivel. So glad I found you here, Mr Evans! Oh and why the numerous Filipino "extras" in Invisible Armies? :)
