When Mum picked me up after my first day of primary school I was in tears. 'Whatever's the matter?' she asked. I spat out my words between heaving staccato sobs. They were an accusing finger. 'YOU said they'd teach me to read!'
It took much longer than I expected... but they did teach me and I've not stopped since. They also taught me to write and I published my first novel in 2011, The Zul Enigma (check out the website at www.thezulenigma.com).
As to my background? Well, I was born just outside London, England, and moved to Asia where I've lived half my life. I now spend my time between Singapore, Assam in North East India, Bali in Indonesia and the UK.
In addition to reading and writing I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends. I love laughing and try to spend as much time doing that as I can. I think it keeps me healthy! My hobbies are reading, tennis and travelling. I also enjoy good food and wine. Mmm...
