Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I love to play football and cricket - sports in general - with my kids. Often, I'll take Rollo, our wonderful long haired Dachtshund for a walk to the woods. For a dog with such short legs, he's surprisingly determined.
I'm currently building a swimming pond - or organic pool - which is terrifically exciting.
