An only child who grew up in the country, I had little to do but read. I wrote my first story when I was nine, about a monster that lived in the hills behind my home. It scared me so much I hid the pages under my bed at night and still had nightmares about it!
An embryo stage career, nipped in the bud by an injudicious marriage (fortunately for the theatre, I think) and a lifetime of jobs that haven't really meant anything in themselves, but which afford me a rich font of characters. I hope they will leap from the page for you as they do for me!
This year I was short-listed for the Aeon Short Fiction Prize.
