Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
That probably changes at any given moment but I certainly read every book Mo Hayder does and most of Mark Billingham's. The two Cromwell books by Hilary Mantel were excellent and I've very much enjoyed a few of her other titles. David Peace is a pretty incredible writer and I try to read most of Anthony Beevor's stuff too. Also devoured all of George R R Martin's Game of Thrones series. Tolkien and also Philip Pullman are fabulous authors as well. Stop me now or I'll just keep going.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I actually quite enjoy my day job, though that's not always been the case. Mostly it's the wife and kids. You don't get much choice in the matter with three young children in the house. That's a bit of a humdrum answer though. I find the prospect of writing, the excitement and buzz of it, as well as finding people to read and, most important, enjoy what I write keep me going.
