When did you decide to become a writer?
I have always written stories and poems for fun. My first real short story was written for a reception class when I was in my last year of Primary School. It has always stuck with me because when the children were asked which stories they remembered and liked, they mentioned mine. I was thrilled! I started a beauty and afternoon tea blog back in 2009 but very soon my short stories and poems began to appear in my Friday Column, my love of fiction finally had an outlet. They were so well received, and when I wrote one in particular… A Tempting Trio, I felt that it could be developed into my first novel.
Do you try to set a number of words per day?
I try to aim for 1500-2000 words a day. I don’t always achieve it, but I do my best. But even just achieving 100 words is satisfying. No day is wasted if words have been written.
What struggles have you overcome as a writer?
I suspect most people people would say finding the time. Juggling a toddler and one at primary school takes up a lot of time and energy so I have to seize the opportunity whenever I can, although the best time for me to write in in the morning. The ideas are there bubbling away in my head, they are never a problem. I have to always ensure I carry a notepad or my phone with me so that I can jot them down as soon as they enter my head, else I will forget. This way they are there, ready to pick up, when I get the time to write.
Which famous person, living or dead would you like to meet and why?
I would love to meet Frederick Forsyth, the author of The Day Of The Jackal. I really want to know who the Jackal was! It was one of my all-time favourite books but the ending frustrated me (in a good way!)
What advice would you give to aspiring writers?
The best advice I would say is to just start writing. My favourite writing quote is ‘The water cannot flow unless you turn on the tap.’ It’s so true, once you sit down to write, the ideas will keep on coming.
