Let’s start with the most important. What’s your most recent/next book, and where can we go to learn more about it and you?
The Advent Calendar. [My Facebook] page has a lot of information, newspaper cuttings and some interview articles, also a YouTube copy of a BBC interview.
Do you know how all of your characters look and sound?
Yes exactly, I virtually visualised the entire thing as a sort of movie, picturing the amazing landscapes and sets in fine detail, likewise the characters and their characteristics. I did exactly the same whilst reading Tolkien and found it a frustration watching the films.
Can you read other things when you’re working on a book, or do you have to stick with writing?
Absolutely,a change is as good as a rest, I sometimes find taking a break from writing and reading altogether allows you to reflect and perhaps pick up new ideas. I find myself trying to write either in the right location or in the right mood/environment (nearer Christmas helps with my Christmas books)
What are you most nostalgic for from your childhood?
Christmas 100%, it was such a special time at home, I had four siblings and the Christmas period at home was simply magical, I also lived in a close knit village and the school at Christmas was wonderfully festive, a marvelous childhood was gifted to me and I will be eternally grateful to mum and dad, my Christmas books attempts to share this good will and festive feel.
What is one question you’ve always wanted to be asked in an interview?
So how pleased are you with the film adaptation of your novel?
