Q: Where do you get your inspiration from?

A: Everywhere really. Things I see or watch. I often get the best ideas while I’m in the shower or in bed, which isn’t always the most convenient place as I then have to write them down before I forget!

Q: What environment do you like to write in?

A: I like a quiet environment around me, but then I stick in my earphone and blast my music. I find the library great. It’s where I get most of my work done. If I stay home, I get too distracted.

Q: What is the hardest part of the writing process?

A: Editing! I believe I’m getting better, but I’m definitely a fast writer, slow editor.

Q: What do you think is most important to get right in a book?

A: Great characters. They hold the whole book together. I always try to work out my characters first, what are their passions, motivations, their pasts and then that helps shape the rest of the book.

Q: Any tips for aspiring writers?

A: Finish the book. Then write another one. Just write and write. Read. Then write some more. Don’t let fear hold you back. If you have any questions, I am always happy to try and answer them.
