Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I discovered the inner power of creative writing when I was at secondary school (that's what we called it in the late seventies). I was writing my first hopelessly naïve and love-lorn novels from about the age of 17 or so.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the North West of England. I draw on my own experience when writing, though not in an autobiographical sense, just using those settings that are familiar to me - so the towns and the countryside in my novels are the England that I know.
