Describe your desk
I have a beautiful antique mahogany desk, inlaid with green leather, that belonged to my father. I rarely write there, though. My desk tends to be wherever I plonk the laptop (usually any place out of the grasp of small children!).
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a rural location on the beautiful south Devon coast, in England. My upbringing is a huge influencer on my writing, and one of the books in the DOTTY series has a maritime theme!
