Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I love history - particularly the English Regency period and the American west - so anything in those genres grabs my interest. I also like a crime novel that keeps me guessing 'who dunnit' until the end.
Describe your desk
Organised chaos. Like my handbag in which can be found the kitchen sink...even the odd forgotten banana, squashed and leaky. Urrrghhh!. My desk is a huge monstrosity with numerous shelves. There's everything I need at my fingertips from elastic bands to erasers, sellotape to scissors, pens, pencils, post its, screen wipes, stapler, shredder, notebooks, nibbles and elephants etc. Did I say elephants. That's because I'm potty on elephants and there's always one or two within arm's reach either on my ears, on my wrist or holding a stack of pencils.

  • Neptune's Trident! - Astro's Adventures on Oct. 12, 2014

    This is a fun and imaginative story in a series about a group of unusual dogs. When Neptune, King of the Seas, loses his all-powerful trident, who’s he going to call? He needs someone who can sink their teeth into the case. For the canine detectives from The Organisation, a secret group in the Doggy Day Care Centre, this is just up their street. They will go to any lengths and depths – even to the bottom of the ocean – to get the trident back. This is a colourful underwater fantasy adventure that kids will enjoy. The author writes in a style that makes the characters and action very visual for young readers. Try it.
