Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first book I remember was Alfred Hitchcock and the Three Investigators. It had humour, mystery and it touched a deep well of curiosity that I did not know I had. Then I found that the book was part of a series and I was in Seventh Heaven. Reading a series for me was like reading a never ending book. This love for a great series was born out in later years as I devoured books by authors like Wilbur Smith, James Clavell, Eric Van Lustbader, Alistair MacLean and Desmond Bagley.
What do you read for pleasure?
Just about anything. I simply love reading. From a newspaper article to a biography or technical piece. I try to balance fiction with fact. I will go through periods of wanting to learn to wanting to relax. I love audio books as now I can read while I drive.
