1) HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WRITING? HAVE YOU TAKEN ANY CREATIVE WRITING COURSES?
I’ve always loved writing in diary’s and found it a great release. However, for me writing really hit me one summer a few years ago. I was sitting looking out of my window thinking about writing other things…I just knew I wanted to start writing in a different way. So I think my writing really came alive when I took a writing course online and had a great tutor who helped me focus on bringing out the stories theat were in my mind.
2) HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR DAILY WRITING ROUTINE?
I’m a total night owl, I do my best writing in the dead of night with the moon glinting through my bedroom window, two cats purring either side of me and a nice candle burning beside my crystal ball. My laptop comes out and music on low and I’m set to write away.
3) WHICH PART OF THE WRITING PROCESS DO YOU FIND THE MOST ENJOYABLE?
I think all parts are important but for me it’s the first draft. I love nothing more than just following my story freely without changing a thing or judging my work too closely. I think it’s in that stage I feel closest to the worlds I’m writing about and the characters I’m following down their unknown paths.
4)FINDING DESTINY IS YOUR FIRST NOVEL – CAN YOU TELL THE READERS OF THIS BLOG ABOUT IT?
Finding Destiny is about take a lad called Alex who one night goes to find his sister’s pony, little did he know that night would change his life in ways he could never imagine. When he finds himself drinking a blue drink that changes his whole life forever. Now he has to get to know the world around him and take on responsibilities that has been thrust upon his shoulders to save the people he loves.
5) IS fINDING DESTINY A STANDALONE NOVEL OR ARE YOU WRITING A SERIES?
Finding Destiny is read as a standalone novel. However, I’m working on a novel that is very loosely related.
