Quick Juice Questions

24:04   Do you currently invest? If so, what do you look for in an investment, and why?

“I have a few rental properties, and it’s instinct.

Return, obviously, is important. Locality is important. Ease of looking after the property … Those are my factors.”

25:36   What most inspires you? When and where are you most inspired?

“Life inspires me.”

26:08   Which book has inspired you and changed your thinking the most?

            “I think it’s always the last published book.”

26:36   What was the last book you read?

“It’s so far removed from what I write. I love historical romance. I think it maybe just takes me away from the grit of murder, of what I deal with.

I absolutely love Las Vegas. It’s my Disney World. I read historical romance and run off to Vegas.”

27:08   If there’s one last bit of Executive Juice you can share for people who want to get to the top of their property game, what would it be?

“Do it.

Don’t think about it. Do it.”


  • “Give it a go, whatever it is. It doesn’t work, try again. All you’ve done is learn.”
  • “Stop talking about it. Go and do it.”
