AN author has had his first book published by a firm in America.
Martin Bodenham, of Main Street, Ayston, has a background career in private equity and corporate finance but realised his potential as an author when he penned “The Geneva Connection”.
Martin said: “I have wanted to write a novel for some years, but have only recently found the time.
“They say you should write about what you know, so I chose to set my thriller against the backdrop of the international private equity markets.
“As much of the story takes place in the US, I thought it might appeal to a US publisher.
“Musa Publishing was the first US publisher I approached with my manuscript, and they issued a contract for it within 48 hours.”
Martin already has plans for a second and third novel.
