I love to express what I feel is important in life and my book "Conan Doyles Wallet" has lots of subtle wisdom in it which I wanted to get across to those who read it.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I like to visit historic places, browse antiques stores, and travel.when I have some free time.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I love to read books on history and the classics, I think it was a Charles Dickens book like Oliver Twist that was one of the first I read by myself. My sister Joan used to read to me when I was very young, and she helped me learn how to read before I went to school. So I had a big head start early on when I got to pre-school.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
I don;t have fixe favourite books but I do like Bernard Cornwell writings, especially the Sharpe series.
Describe your desk
Cluttered with a Laptop and books, but I have now changed to an iPad.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in London and had many influences in my writing, but it's lifes experiences that has given me my inspiration.
