Tony Farnden


I'm Tony and I used to write when I was young and then life got in the way. Let's hope it's not too late to make some impression with what I write. I'm not giving up this time round that's for sure.

Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The thought of breakfast unless I've been dreaming the next chapter, the next poem, the next bit of fun that happens in what I am currently writing. Then that is sure to drive me from my bed to ensure I don't forget it. If I can get that on the page intact then I can have that breakfast.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading novels, critiquing other new writers like myself, walking the dogs, baking bread, brewing wine, watching TV.
