Having rediscovered my childhood passion for reading in 1997 whilst travelling in Italy and Greece, it wasn’t long before I felt the urge to begin writing. I guess I started around the turn of the millennium, but writing something I could feel satisfied with, on the other hand, didn’t happen overnight.
Being an avid reader myself, it is ALL about the writing – the quality of the prose itself – and this is something I try to practice every day. Books shouldn’t just tell a story from start to finish, telling you what happened; a good book should make you feel a certain way too, as well as living with you a long time after you’ve finished reading it.
It is a competitive world out there and there is always a temptation to try to write something purely for profit, to write something with instant appeal; but I have always tried to stay true to myself. I truly believe that if the writing is good enough then it will appeal to enough readers to be successful.
I hope you enjoy my writing. Thank you!
