Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small rural area that did not have anything like the internet is now, but it had an incredible library and I had a loving family who was passionate about reading. Stories inspire you, and I was inspired by the likes of Tintin, Asterix, and Enid Blyton.
When did you first start writing?
The first story I wrote was a note to my parents, asking if me and my brother could watch the end of a movie or a t.v programme that we could hear in our room. I wrote a few notes looking for tea or biscuits too. I slipped the note under the door and snuck back to bed. The requests were often but not always heeded, so I guess that was my first encounter with an editor. From then on, it was writing in English class in school.
