Bang Gang(135)By: Jade West
Richard, thank you so much for taking the time to teach me the finer details of being a mechanic, it was seriously appreciated. You’re someone I’ve come to count on, and inspired so much of Darren Trent – I guess that’s where the biggest thanks of all is due. (RW Services in Ewyas Harold, everyone – I cannot recommend them enough. They’ve been taking care of our cars for over four years now and have always done us proud.)
To regulars of the Dog and the Temple – I’ve enjoyed hanging out with you all in the name of village research, thank you for the stories.
So many friends to thank! Lisa, Dom, Jo, Sue, Marie, Lauren, Tom, Kate, Hanni… I’m so honoured to know you all. Thank you all for putting up with my incessant book-speak!
Jon, your support means everything. I love the life we have together and wouldn’t want to do this with anyone else. Your encouragement and love are always felt and always appreciated. I love you. X
My amazing family, who are the best cheerleaders I could ever wish for. Mum, Dad, Nan and Brad – I love you all very much. The only good thing about finishing a novel (which always requires leaving a little bit of my soul behind) is that I get to spend more time with you. X
And of course, to my readers! Thank you for taking the time to read Bang Gang, I hope so much that you enjoyed Darren and Jodie’s story. It’s because of you that I get to spend my days writing, and there are simply no words to describe my gratitude. X
Jade has increasingly little to say about herself as time goes on, other than the fact she is an author, but she’s plenty happy with this. Living in imaginary realities and having a legitimate excuse for it is really all she’s ever wanted.
Jade is as dirty as you’d expect from her novels, and talking smut makes her smile.
She lives in the Herefordshire countryside with a couple of hounds and a guy who’s able to cope with her inherent weirdness.
She has a red living room, decorated with far more zebra print than most people could bear, and fights a constant battle with her addiction to Coca-Cola.
