Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up between England and Italy. My mother's Italian family have had a lot of influence in the way my characters are developed. The differences between the nationalities made me more interested in other people's national traits as well.
When did you first start writing?
