Writing the weird and wonderful. The ability to encourage, scare and delight readers through fantasy that touches reality.


Background Information

Roald Dahl was the first author to inspire me. His talent for making characters live and breath triggered my love of writing. I love that fantasy can touch reality, that as a writer I can make this happen on a page. I was more encouraged, though inadvertently, by an English teacher telling me "You'll never write." It wasn't the red rag to the bull you might have thought. It devastated me, for a year or two... twenty actually, but in hindsight it made me a strong and better writer. Reading constantly children's authors like: Roald Dahl, Darren Shan, Mark Haddon, David Clement-Davies, Beverley Birch, Sarah Singleton and William Nicholson to name but a few have all helped me to grow as a writer. But I also read adult fiction to keep me abreast of different styles, techniques etc. Authors like: David Wolstencroft, Nora Roberts (J.D. Robb), Alexander McCall Smith, Joseph Finder, Dan Brown and Ben Elton among many more. I work part-time as a ICT teacher, which I love tremendously. This gives me a chance to keep up to date with what the children like and dislike. There are often wonderful snippets to get my teeth into, my imagination sparks and a story beings to germinate

Accomplishments

Overcoming dyslexia to become a published writer.
Short-listed for the last four years at the annual writers conference in Winchester, England. 2006 I won the 12+ novel writing competitions adjudicated by Little Tiger Press. There have been other small successes but I'm still after the book deal.
