Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
I work in quite a small area by the window in the room that is really our dining-room.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in South Wales. I was fortunate enough to pass the 11-plus when I was a child and go on to a Grammar School in a village called Gowerton. I had not enjoyed my schooling up until this point.

I had always been a reader but these two men introduced me to the wonder that is the English language.
