Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I lived in rural Cornwall, in the Southwest of England until I was eleven, but in 2006 we sold our house, bought a campervan and made the move to France with no idea what to expect on the other side. My sister and I were home-educated at this time for about 6 months, which mainly meant that we visited loads of museums and National Trust buildings. While we were moving, things could get stressful, life was pretty unpredictable at times, plus we had to go to school in a whole new language. I liked to escape reality. I started off with doodles and cartoons about a time-traveller called Lisa from the year 5012, then I made another about my childhood toys called "Bacchus and Zulu". My dad, (being a little bit of a nerd...) introduced me to the wonderful genres of science-fiction and fantasy. One of my favourite authors was and remains Douglas Adams. I don't think my childhood has had much of an influence on what I write, but it gave me the chance to develop my imagination. The stories I write usually have very little to do with my life as it is lived, bar a few minor details that are usually unimportant to the story line: the easiest person to imagine in a story is usually yourself.
When did you first start writing?
I only started writing seriously when I was 17 (2012), but before then I was (and still am) an avid cartoonist.
