When did you first start writing?
Like any literate child, I started young. I always had a knack for making people laugh and teachers used to pass my stories around and laugh together. A better question would probably be when did I realise I had a talent for writing? I saw it as a hobby until I felt a strong urge to stop talking about other peoples work and do my own instead. That happened in my early 20's...
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
London born and Jamaican bred. I had the experience of growing up in both a big city and a country town. It helped ground me but it also reminded me that there is a bigger platform out there.
