Without fail it has to be Stephen King. A man who can write something so dark but yet smart is a man you should never disrespect.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Everything! My writing, my job, my comedy, my love ones, and of course my dreams. Staying in bed all day is one of the worse things you can do. Yeah, sometimes it's nice to relax but people needs to get up and get out!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Either seeing my love ones or writing my scripts or doing my stand up comedy. I'm a massive movie geek aswell, anything from comedy to horror/sci-fi and even thrillers. I even have a cinema pass....
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I love looking around on different book websites and that's how I come across most of them. Ebooks are very clever and is definitely a way forward to the future.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
It was a story that was told to me by my Great Grandmother, Ethel. It was a ghost story and it was actually based on a true story aswell. I still remember every word that came out of her mouth, it was scary but very good. It was called "The Nightmare Dove."
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
My first ever story was Frankenstein and it has been and always will be my favourite horror story of all time! The impact it had on me was so strong and made me determined to write my own horror/gothic story.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
1) Frankenstein 2) Of Mice and Med 3) The Shining 4) Harry Potter 5) The Dome
Why? Because they never failed to open my imagination....
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the heart of East London, so it's famous for a lot of things. I am very passionate about where I'm from so I use East London in my stories as much as I can. I live here, I studied here.... Never forget your roots, because at the end of the day, you will always come back home.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Is basically "what if's" for a lot of things. What if there was a group of unknown warriors who were creatures living in East London? What if we got all of the history facts wrong? I wanted to give people surprise, gore, horror, and even some funny bits in the first book of the series.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
My Great Grandmother, Ethel Andrews. Amazing woman and if it wasn't for her, then I honestly don't know what I would be doing now.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Sharing my ideas and imagination to everyone. I love to shock and surprise people with horror and laughter as much as I can.
