I am writing a trilogy, the first volume of which, The Advent of Lena, a tale of Beauty and the Beast has been published. I am now working on the second book - working title Hypochondria, the novel - in which hypochondria and problem gambling and how these syndromes can interact is examined. I am currently researching these subjects for the novel.
The main literary influences on my life have been the Bible, The Pilgrims Progress, The Wind in the Willows, Lolita, No Mean City, Edgar Allan Poe's Tales of Mystery and Imagination, and my devotion to all matters literary. Including keen interest in the lives and working methods of the people who I admire most - writers. Among these being - Bunyan, Dickens, Dostoyevsky, Chekoc, Kafka, Poe, Conrad, Nabakov, Scott Fitzgerald, Henry James, Tennessee Williams, John Buchan.
