When I am not doing my day job, I do pretty much the opposite (although I am still sitting in my back bedroom), and I like to make stuff up.
Ever since I was young I have enjoyed reading novels and short stories, and it was my dream to write my own. I had no idea how, though. In the end I got sick of myself and decided to just have a go by parking my bum on the seat and banging out some words.
And, excitingly, the stories started to come together. (There was a lot of hair-tearing in between but I am skipping over that — mainly because it hasn’t gone away!)
I have two books coming out in 2017 — I can’t wait. You can find out more here. They are both mysteries/thrillers.
