My Blog

As you know, I’m not just a writer, but an avid reader too. Obsessive, in fact. From an early age, I used to badger my older sister to read me the Biff and Kipper books, then trapse around with my mother to find book bargains at the local car-boot sales. They were just 20p back then, in case you were wondering… those were the days!

I basically have two hobbies in life – writing, and voraciously reading! When I’m not tapping away at a keyboard, my nose is stuck firmly into a book, and few things thrill me more than reading something that totally engrosses me.

I’m all for having fun with writing. After all, that’s why we do it, isn’t it; so we can dive into worlds of our own making and have a right laugh in the process? (Except all you authors writing about mass-murders and bleak stuff; that’s maybe not quite as amusing.)

I’m not usually one for New Year’s Resolutions. Mainly because I seem unable to keep them, especially if they involve cutting back on chocolate, alcohol or any other vice. Years of experience has taught me that my will-power is at its most pathetic around mid-January, which doesn’t bode well for any half-hearted promises made the week before!

I’m a terrible one for getting carried away about Christmas. You know that scene in Elf, where Will Ferrell gets over-excited about the prospect of seeing Father Christmas and starts literally bouncing on the spot? That’s not far off my own reaction…hence we’ve now living in a house that’s starting to resemble a magical grotto / junk yard (depending on your view-point).
