What is your writing process?
I do try to write every day. I have just completed writing my third full-length novel. I do like to write short-stories as well and my book FIFTEEN BRUSHES WITH LOVE is currently on Smashwords. I write in my study which overlooks some wonderful countryside in THE SURREY HILLS in southern England. I like to think that this view gives me the inspiration I need to write a really good story.
How do you approach cover design?
My first book A PASSING STORM was published in 2006. I water-colour painted and designed the cover. I chose the cover of my second novel PAPER DREAMS from one of the sites on the internet which were varied and often quite pleasing. For my book FIFTEEN BRUSHES WITH LOVE here on Smashwords, I also found the cover on an internet site.
Fifteen Brushes with Love is a collection of fifteen very different short stories to delight the mind and act as a reminder of when you first fell deeply in love. It also sends a warning that circumstances can change!
Love comes in many different guises and affects people in so many ways. I wonder how it will affect you!
