The first book I really, really loved was Doctor Doolittle. I was six or seven. Before then, I'd enjoyed books occasionally but never understood why people spent so much time with their noses buried in them.
Since then I've always had a "book on the go". I will read pretty much any genre - provided the characters are strongly voiced. If there's a good plot as well, all the better.
I've been writing since I was a young teen, and have several unfinished non-masterpieces on the go. Hopefully I'll publish another before the millennium is out.
My first and only published novel - The Corridor - is on general sale at the usual places. (Amazon, iTunes, Kobo, B&N, Smashwords)
The Corridor tells the story of a group of Oxford students through their conversations, tweets, emails and text messages. Includes a cast of super-confident, utterly reprehensible, self-obsessed politicians-in-waiting.
