I know I've been writing since I was about 8 years old. I remember making a speech I'd written to 'unveil' the patio my dad had laid at our house (with our 'help'), and when my mum died in 2003, I found a small booklet in her box of treasures, written in a very childish hand, entitled The Little Stream. Yes, I remembered it well!
I've been creating articles and event reports for newsletters and magazines ever since, but early fiction attempts failed for want of suitable inspiration: I just couldn't find interesting characters and plot! I had a series of careers in business which kept me chained to a desk for many years. So I wrote manuals, reports, science papers, blogs, journals, anything and everything that kept the words flowing. Finally the characters jumped into my head with stories that needed to be told, and THE PRINCELINGS OF THE EAST was born.
I now live in Norfolk with my guinea pigs, the first of whom, Fred, George, Victor and Hugo, provided the inspiration for my stories. And the picture is me with Fred. That's Princeling Fred, of course!
