Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the country on a farm, so spent a lot of time by myself so my imagination was always with me.
What are you working on next?
I have just completed and released my first dark-themed series and full anthology collections. This series will be on-going. I have 3 novels on the go at once so I tend to complete them next. First one will be for my Dad (miss you mate) set in London and is 50/60s before coming to early Australia. Very pommy and very bawdy tale of mate-ship and a love story within in a band - Tommy Timor and the Tremors. No horror in this one but lots of laughs so along the lines of my first novel -The Flair.
