More stuff about me (please email me and ask me anything)


I am represented by Darley Anderson Agency


Early influences:

I love poetry and wrote from an early age. I will try and find a half decent one to include later!  I especially love Wilfred Owen. The song of Hiawatha inspired me when i was young. I got the taste for foreign settings. The last of the Mohicans remains my all time fave book – it has everything I would like to include in a book – unrequited love, big fight scenes and  a thought provoking, foreign stage.

I won two prizes for story writing when I was under 8. I was allowed to choose from some Ladybird books as my prize. I chose a book on the human body and another on Marco Polo.Which I think is quite telling...
I was a Beano reader when I was little - had it set aside every week at the newsagents.

Television programs -  I loved Man from Uncle and Monkey ( weird Chinese thing for kids) and the A team.
