WHAT DREW YOU TO WRITING?
Some of my earliest memories involve sitting alone or even amongst people, making up stories and reimagining the world around me. I've never stopped doing that, so I guess it was a natural progression.
DID YOU STUDY WRITING? IF SO, WAS IT WORTH IT?
Yes, informally, then at university as a 'mature age' student. The formal study enriched my reading habits, and gave me the space to work out what really matters to me in terms of my own writing. Everything I've done in life was worth it, at some level.
