Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Shropshire, England. At school there was a fabulous oak panelled library which had stunning views of the countryside. This provided a tranquil atmosphere to read, enjoy and appreciate books. I imagined that one day there would be a book of mine in it! Nearby, there was a ruined castle which inspired me to invent plays and stories.
When did you first start writing?
I first stared writing very simple stories when I was at primary school. It was a great way to escape by creating an imaginary world.
