When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Sleeping. Eating chocolate. Watching old sf shows. Reading. Oh, and attending the Eye Clinic.

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Not really, I started writing stuff when I was about 8 or 9. I had an English teacher called Mr Lewis, he was quite an old fella as he'd been at the school teaching some of my older siblings so he was pretty long in the tooth but he was a really positive influence as he let me write whatever I wanted.
I recall one of the oldest things I wrote being a time travel story where I was the hero but I died at the end after I was burnt at the stake for being a witch.
