It was a picture book about a prawn who wakes up on a dinner table and follows his adventures as he escapes. I was nine years old when I wrote that.
What is your writing process?
I use my over active imagination and warped sense of humour.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
"Where the wild things are" by Maurice Sendark. I cried till the teacher let me take it home with me. I love the book, hated the movie.
How do you approach cover design?
I try and make my characters front and centre of each cover.
What do you read for pleasure?
i read anything i can get my hands. At the moment I am reading a novel by Richard Le Normand called 'Once upon a bridge".
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I use a Samsung Galaxy tab. I love them they are so cool.
Describe your desk
Covered in bits of paper, notes, pencils, pens, ink, paint brushes and heaps of action figures.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
The ability to do whatever I wanted to do, I could keep my vision and not change it because of a publishing company.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
They have allowed me to have artistic and creative freedom, which is so important as an artist.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Gaming, I am an avid collector of gaming machines and have all the sega systems and nintendo systems as well as atari. At the moment I am playing Assassin's Creed on PS3.
