Franz Kafka Prize, European Union Prize for Literature, Goethe Prize, The Hans Christian Anderson Award, …… these are just a few of the awards I'm never likely to win……. But I’m still doing something I love thanks to ebooks and ultimately that’s all that counts.
Born Camberwell London UK 1959 (OMG!!)
Grew up in Mitcham, Tooting and Clapham in London.
Have been writing as a hobby since Primary school. English was about the only thing I ever excelled at and writing for me was always on the cards even if I was generally too lazy to sit down and do it. If the lesson wasn't English I generally gazed out of the nearest window and thought about the universe. I only recently started making a real effort to write in the last five years or so as the mindless grip of the book agent is finally at an end and we all have a second chance.
My other serious Hobby is Photography.
Enjoy writing for the younger Teen Market as I still tend to think like a fourteen year old. Shame I haven’t got the legs to go with the outlook anymore, but it comes to us all. Also have a strong interest in the paranormal, especially out of body experiences. I have been plagued by them since my childhood and am in the process of putting the finishing touches to my new book, A simple Guide to the Out of Body Experience.
If I had the guts I’d like to be a stand up comic.
One of the worst sins in life is to take yourself too seriously.
