Q1 Give us some background on yourself?
I studied drama at Manchester Uni and somewhere along the line realized my imagination was stronger than my acting… so here goes…
Q2 What was the basis for your story in Tales from the Cafe, Vol 1?
I wanted to explore the thoughts and feeling of someone who wasn’t like me, someone who had a story to tell.
Q3 Why did you want to become an author?
Because I love stories, stories led me to writing and writing led me here.
Q4 Any advice for fledgling authors?
Being one myself I would say, believe, if you don’t no one else will.
Q5 What authors do you like and admire?
Stephen King and Ray Brabury, to create such vivid and colourful landscapes and characters with seemingly effortless abandon is something I admire hugely. There are hundreds more but I fear I am already becoming boring….
Q6 What do you do when you’re not writing fiction?
Spin stories for my beautiful daughter Lyra who is three and irritate my husband with endless ‘what ifs..’ I am addicted to vintage dresses and can often be found lurking in thrift stores hoping for a bargain.
Q7 What will you do if you become famous?
