L. P. Donnelli

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I started writing from a very young age, first being published for a specialist angling magazine before my teens. I use to love to writing stories for my English classes at school also from a very early age.
What do you read for pleasure?
I love to read all types of stories for pleasure, from Almond to Walliams, with lots in-between. I like so many different genres. I have always had a love for sci fi and also sci phi, that is science fiction stories with a philosophical slant, especially Philip K. Dick. I'm a big fan of fantasy also, my favorite children's book from being a child was The Hobbit, that my father use to read to me before I could even walk. Always been a big fan of Sherlock Holmes stories since I was very young also. I think it really helps with one's writing to mix genres, combining them to get new and interesting results.
