Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small town in the north east of England, named Peterlee. It is at the centre of quite a deprived area and as a teenager I longed to move away to a more glamorous part of the world. I guess that is why I tend to set my books in exotic locations - Australia, Thailand and in the one I am currently writing; China.
What made you decide to become a writer?
When I discovered that I have a natural talent for it. After spending three and a half years travelling the world, I decided to create some journals to chronicle my adventures. The writing came easier than I had expected it too and it was not long before I turned my hand to fiction.
