What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Need to answer a call of nature
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Listening to music, making playlists, playing with my animals and thinking about the next sentence.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, it was a story about dreams becoming reality. I was eight.

A mess of papers, pictures, sound system, computer and printer scanner...with the occasional cat.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I didn't.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Wyndwrayth is born out of my move to live in Anglesey; the strangeness of the landscape, it's heritage and spiritual nature.

Horror and Sci Fi. I have a taste for late night cheesy horror and my fave is definitely Jeepers Creepers 2. In Sci Fi I love things like the Alien series but also have a great fondness for 50's and 60's classics like Quatermass and the Pit.
