Describe your desk
I have a small office with all my reference books and writing materials near at hand so I do not have to move to reach anything want.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born in the North East of England to a single mother with six children. Our house was crowded but I always remember it as being full of laughter, and we all pulled together. Some would say it was deprived, but I would say had a very happy childhood.
