When did you first start writing?
I first started writing when my family and I moved back to England from living in Perth, Western Australia. My youngest child had started full time education and I had time on my hands to pursue this new chosen career. I had been developing the idea for Muse for some time but finally got the opportunity to put pen to paper when we moved to Hertfordshire. I always wanted to write. I love reading books and wanted to see if I could rise to the challenge of becoming an author.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I would say that where I grew up strongly influenced my writing. I was born in Sheffield, which is in the north of England, close to Manchester, and Harrogate where the story of Muse is set. Although the characters are fictitious, there are indeed elements of their personalities that have come from people I have encountered in my life whilst growing up in Yorkshire, some more than others.
