Publisher info

I like the strange things in life, and love it when a story drags you through to the end and you eat with one hand and hold the book with the other. Writing is a passion that takes over sometimes!

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I remember hearing was A Dragon for Danny Dennis, my mum read it to me before bed. I don't remember the first story I read myself though.
The story that I think had the most influence on me was Smokey the Cow Pony. I wanted to work with horses when I left school and I did. Doing breakers like in the story. I hadn't had horses when I was growing up so it was kind of a big thing for me to choose that kind of job over going to college.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
My five favourite books would be in first place Domain by James Herbert, this is the one book that totally freaked me out and scared the pants off me. Smokey the Cow Pony because I love the way it's written.
In third place would be Dr Faustus again because of the way it's written and for the comedy element.
Fourth would be Alibaba and the Forty Thieves because the copy I have is so old and the pictures are magnificent works of art that I would love to replicate in one of my own books.
Lastly I would choose any book by Andy McNab because he has been there and done that and his stories come from, in part, his own truth.
