Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
After a big life event in late 2016 I changed careers in 2017 to pursue what I had wanted to do since as long as I can remember – write books. Sicken of the Calm is my first book, but I hope to write many more.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Sicken of the Calm is my first and latest book.
Reading entertaining books which explored the dynamics with people transported me away from my own life when I needed it. It inspired me to write something fun, sexy, but that explored how a person’s opinion of themselves can differ from how others see them, a big theme in the book.
What are you working on now?
I’ve been busy, so I’ve already written the second instalment of the Fox Lake series and the first book of my next series. I hope to start the third book of Fox Lake soon!
Do you have any advice for new authors?
The most useful thing I’ve learnt in the short months since I started is to write a detailed outline of the story before starting. This allows me not to get stalled if I have a bad day or am not feeling inspired. I just have to follow the outline.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Be kind. Work hard.
What’s next for you as a writer?
