Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
I write from a grey bureau that I hand painted. I have the orchid that my son bought for me on the shelf above and on the wall behind I have a display of photographs of my family to remind me what it's all about.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Yorkshire, England. My childhood was extremely chaotic and I quickly learnt that it is a lot easier to get through life's difficulties if you can find a little humour, even in the darkest of times - the idea for Jenna Jaghe came out of this kind of thinking.
However, on the flip side, I also had a deep need to understand why people do bad things to each other, which led me to studying psychology; this is where my new book, my first psychological thriller (still in progress) started to manifest. I have two writing styles. One writes the funny side of even the most embarrassing of situations (Jenna Jaghe) and the other writes the deepest, darkest, disturbing aspects of human nature and the consequences this can have on others.
