Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I enjoy novels and other works from New Zealand authors Elizabeth Knox, Witi Ihimaera, Lloyd Jones, Hone Tuwhare and Patricia Grace. I always have personal development type books on the go as well and when I travel overseas, buying a mystery/crime novel at the airport, before departure, is compulsory.
When did you first start writing?
I always enjoyed writing as a child and I remember writing a comedy radio script at one stage, influenced by listening to a British comedy radio play about Julius Caesar. I loved its clever word play and the British sense of humour. I still enjoy playing with words, telling stories and having fun with them, at the same time.
