1. What inspired you to write your books?
All my books come from my imagination with a few subconscious memories thrown in.
2. Have you always wanted to be an author, or something else?
I wanted to be a cowboy, a writer, an actor or an artist in that order when I was 6. My teacher told me I couldn't be a cowboy because I was a girl so I decided to be a writer instead.
3. If you could use a time machine for one day what would you use it for?
To move forward 50 years when I won't be around anymore to see what my children and grandchildren are up to.
4. A lot of readers of this blog aspire to become a writer what could you tell them? Any Tips?
Read, read, read, write, write, write. The two go together.

My mum. She loved books and was a great mum.

Lady Macbeth. I know "Macbeth" is a play not a book but she's such an interesting and much-maligned character.
8. What was your favourite childhood story?
Anything by Enid Blyton. Such adventures! even though they were far removed from my own experience.

No- I can't afford the luxury of writer's block. I don't have time to sit here doing nothing.

Aargh! They go together. Do I have to choose? Ok then, writing.
