Paul Charles’ A Day In The Life Of Louis Bloom – the latest installment in the Brendan McCusker series – is both a love letter to Belfast and a gripping thriller.
The old adage says when you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life. This seems to be the motto celebrated author and legendary manager Paul Charles lives by. Though he has a number of successful novels under his belt, Charles started out by managing the band The Blues By Five when he was just 15, printing the local telephone box number on his business cards.
“In those days, there were people who made music and people who helped people make music,” he reflects. “In order to be able to continue to hang out with my friends who had formed The Blues By Five, I became the manager.”
It was during this time Charles’ love of writing developed.
