Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
There are few books which have left a lasting impact. One that has is Malcolm X by Alex Haley, although it wasn’t the first story I read. The story of his struggle is told in such a personal way I felt I could understand who he was and where he was coming from. What I found great was the evolution of his way of thinking over the course of his life. The great tragedy, of course, is that he was murdered at the point when arguably he was ready to capitalise on the transformation in his philosophy.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Back when I when I was in school, maybe thirteen years old, I wrote my own interpretation of the Greek myth about the Minotaur. That’s when I first felt passionate about writing and was completely absorbed by it.
