Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Tapawera, a small town just outside of Nelson, in New Zealand. It was a small town where everyone knows everyone, and this has influenced my writing in a number of ways. Most of my writing involves a small town, or community, and if I can, I try to keep the setting rural, although I won't discount the possibility of something more urban in the future!
What is your writing process?
I usually get an idea which slowly develops as I write. I might come up with a plot summary after writing the first few chapters of a novel, to try and track where the story is going. Although it often changes along the way as the characters develop.
