Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I have written quite a few books, probably around ten or fifteen. Most of the books i have written are nonfiction and cover a variety of subjects from cycling/swimming/running to gambling games and also a book about growing rice.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book is Angelica’s Time Machine. The inspiration came in a bit of a flash. My daughter’s name is Angelica and we were walking into a supermarket where we passed an ATM machine and i just wondered if the initials ATM could mean Angelica’s Time Machine. Slightly strange inspiration but that is where the journey started for this particular book. There is a twist in the book which also happened in real life while i was writing the book so that was included too, but i don’t want to say too much and spoil the book.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
With a 7 year old daughter, it is hard to spend time writing so my unusual habit is probably working past midnight when Angelica is asleep.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Stephen King influenced me and i would recommend his book “on writing” for authors.
What are you working on now?
I have a set of ten childrens books i am working on currently (diddly dooper series of books) with the next book still taking shape in my imagination.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I must admit that i enjoy writing more than i do promoting. Any help is always appreciated and when someone leaves me a review it does mean so much that you take the time to leave a review as that can really help with my promotion.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Just stick with it.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Stephen King describing in his book about how many rejections he received.
What are you reading now?
I am always dipping in and out of all types of books, not just fiction.
What’s next for you as a writer?
A series of childrens books called Diddly Doopers.
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?
4 hour chef by timothy ferris. On writing by stephen king. Guide to trance-formations by richard bandler. Playing with fire by scott rieckens
