Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Too many things! My latest interests include medieval longstaff practice, miniature painting, and learning to play the mandolin. I also spend a lot of time travelling. All these things eventually feed into my writing; for instance the idea for 'The Netsuke' came out of a visit to the British Museum's Asiatic antiquities section.

In common with many other writers, I suspect that I also spend far too much time on the internet. Not always productively!
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I remember the book I wrote it in; a school exercise book with a bright red cardboard cover (embossed to make it look like leather, but we weren't fooled). It was a rambling history of a far continent... and it rambled, and it rambled, and I never finished it.
