Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
My desk is wherever I happen to be at the time. I take my laptop with me everywhere and write when I get inspired.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the North East of England - Teesside, an industrial town. Being a steel town, the current economic climate has had a very negative impact on the area, and I've been able to use the consequences of that in my novels - particularly in my crime novel that I'm writing at the moment. The area is very depressed - there are zero jobs, people are struggling to make ends meat. There's a heavy atmosphere about the place, people are worried about their future, their children's futures, worried where their next meal's coming from, job security. The ones who are lucky enough to find and or have work don't know how long it's going to last, it's an area where a lot of jobs are being lost, mostly outsourced. My home town at this point has certainly inspired my crime novel. And I guess, being a working class town, it's also driven me to keep writing. When I first left collage and signed on the dole, I looked into acting and writing as a career and was promptly told by my adviser that I'd never make it because of where I'm from, because I'm working class.
