D A Latham

Biography

I'm a hairdresser by trade, and used to own a small chain of salons in South London. It was my life for 30 years before I began to write for pleasure. I now write full time and have a total of eight novels.
I've lived with the wonderful Allan for nearly 20 years, and we have two Persian cats, and two dogs called Louis and Lola.

Smashwords Interview

What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Primarily my network of other salon professionals on Facebook. Hairdressers tend to cultivate our social networks carefully, so my friends on there were an enormous help, and still are.
Describe your desk
I write on my iPad, so my desk is wherever I am. I used write in the salon if I had downtime between appointments. At home, I write in the lounge. All my editing is done in my study on the desktop though. My study veers between ultra tidy, and total chaos.
