Publisher info

In 1600 Shakespeare wrote As You Like It. In that play his character Jaques said “All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” I happen to like that phrase. I also believe that we would all like to play different characters from time to time; stories give us the opportunity to do that. We can be a hero or a villain. We can live wherever we dream and travel through time at will. In this crazy world writing keeps me sane: its also a lot of fun.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born in Chesterfield England, lots of English countryside to roam in, but I believe my inspiration really began in Leicester where my parents were caretakers at a large old building. There was no ghost in residence, but it was a spooky place and I remember deliberately, and repeatedly scaring myself by going into parts of it in the dark, on my own.
When did you first start writing?
Twice actually, my very first attempt was around twelve years old when I wrote for the school newspaper. Casper the ghost had recently been on at the cinema and it inspired me to wrote a serial about a friendly little ghost; unfortunately I got him into so much trouble I couldn’t get him out.
From then on I would get a piece of paper now and again and scribble a few words, but with career and family it was never a serious attempt; that came after a divorce in the mid nineties when I wrote to quieten the silence of the empty rooms. The silence is now filled with grandchildren and I haven’t stopped writing.
