Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I began writing short stories for children in my early forties. At first they were only for my own children but then I tried a novel and it was published in 1990 entitled "The Silver Tea-Set." After that I began to write adult short stories.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The book is a collection of the best of my short stories written and published separately over the last 20 years. They are all set in a small town on the Northern Irish coast and the characters are known to each other.
