Janet Maile

Biography

I have been writing since I was a child. When I was a teenager, I wrote a lot of poetry and later on, I wrote articles and short stories which were published in various magazines. The job I liked best was interviewing a man called Ben Clapp, who was assistant to John Logie Baird but had never received any recognition. The Scottish Field carried my two-page article which came to the attention of Radio Rentals, who gave him a video recorder so that he could record his favourite TV programmes.

I am often asked how I write. I start with an idea and then let the characters walk about in my head, doing whatever they want. My task is to write it down. That way, the plot is never artificial. I will never force my characters to do something that simply isn’t in their natures in order to progress the plot. Sometimes I have plans for them, but they decide to go in another direction, like the lady who got on a motorbike and went to a beer festival! That hadn’t been my idea at all.

I am retired and live in the UK near to my sons, daughter-in-law and grandson. When I am not writing, I like to dance or play music on my piano, keyboard, violin or recorder.
