Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small little seaside town on the NW coast of a small island unknown to humans, called England. A retirement place with no much going on except for the crazy weather. Friends at school used to compare to the Goon Docks (Goonies), only slightly more wet. My little town has more colourful characters than a small city, with ample stories to tell. These stories influenced me to tell my own, and scribble poems about the place I left behind.
When did you first start writing?
Yikes! About the age of 6. I used to emulate TV or films, write fanfic.
