I was born in Cheshire in 1972. At primary school, I discovered two things that would eventually lead to me becoming the person I am today. The first wasn't actually at school, it was at home, when my big sister dressed me up in her nurses uniform. She was three years older than me and I have no idea what her intention was, but it planted in a seed in my soul that has grown and blossomed ever since.
The second thing did happen in school. I had a teddy bear called Albert that my cousin had given me. I loved that bear and, when we were given the task of writing a story in class, I made the story about him. Albert was a superhero and my story filled three exercise books. I discovered that I loved writing. Before I left primary school I remember writing a second story, a Sherlock Holmes sort of thing where twins deceived the Police to commit a murder.
During my early teens I dressed as often as I could, usually borrowing my sister's clothes. At the age of fifteen, my parents caught me. They were mad and I was asked if they needed to take me to a shrink or was it just a stupid phase. Given that choice, I lied and said it was a phase. I carried on dressing afterwards, I was just a little more careful.
My writing continued, I had some bad times in my twenties when I nearly died from a rare illness which affects me to this day, and I began writing dark poetry, much of which was presented on a website called Dark Thoughts. One piece was published in a book called Poetry by Moonlight. My first taste of publication.
Despite my health I tried to lead a normal life but as I have become worse I became limited with what I could do and when I fell off a ladder and broke my back it was the final straw, so now I spend most of my time writing, although I am trying to do some voice-over work. We'll see where that goes.
For now, I am continuing to work on the Angels books with a few romances thrown in for good measure.
When did you first start writing?
The first story I remember writing was in Mrs York's class at primary school. I must have been about seven or eight years old at the time and my cousin had given me a fluffy white teddy bear called Albert.
We had been set a task by our teacher to write a story about something we loved, everyone else wrote about five pages about their mum or their pet. I decided to write about Albert and turned him into a superhero (I had never heard of Super Ted at that point) and started my story, several notebooks later and I had finished. My teacher thought it was good, not many others read it.
My first taste of publishing came in my early thirties when I had a poem published in an anthology. I finally started writing Trans Fiction in 2012 and published my first book in 2016.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I'm currently writing a romance novel about a rugby loving guy. As with most of my books the idea is born from something one of my friends says, in this case my editor Chrissy Bowman, and is developed from there. Chrissy is a big rugby fan hence the rugby connection in the book. I don't want to give away too much but our hero has a long journey ahead of him and three possible partners at the end.
