Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Thought I’d go international with my opening but realised its the only French I know and now I feel more Del Boy that David Ginola
So far I’ve written on book and I also blog in my spare time at randomcloudblog.wordpress.com and project 2 is underway taking on the lollypop squad.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Little Black Cloud – which basically sums up my battle with the gremlins and charts my recovery from self harming in the church toilets to breakdown, with the really focus being on the path to wellness and eventual recovery, despite how painfully slow and tedious it maybe.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Due to the school runs I find I usually myself writing during nap times but I find random things often come to me at night, usually after half an hour tossing and turning trying to get to sleep and then boom – off my brain goes on a tangent all of its own accord, to the point my bedside dresser resembles a pin board/waste paper basket.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I love John Connolly, Stephen King, Joe Hill, Marian Keyes, Justin Cronin to name a few.
I really love The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson, a tale about reincarnation and the redemptive power of love. I read it at the time my dad was going through chemo and I really found comfort in the thought that no matter what happens, love is a bridge and we can always find our way back. I also love the Passage trilogy, When a Monster Calls and Every Dead Thing.
What are you working on now?
I’m currently working on a another project all to do with body positivity and taking on the ridiculous beauty standards set by the media mainstream.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
You can’t put an old head on young shoulders.
What are you reading now?
The Break by Marian Keyes.
What’s next for you as a writer?
I’m about to join the blogging team at Huffington Post UK.
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
Every Dead Thing
And a copious amount of Bacardi!
