Maybe it was because languages were my thing but I loved writing at school and I’ve loved it ever since. Obviously, I hope others will enjoy reading what I write but, now that I am turning my hand to novels, what matters most to me is to write what, as a reader, I would like to read.
As a journalist with UK national newspapers, I’ve written widely on education, business, sport and law. In the creative writing field, I have written the scripts of two TV dramas (BBC and ITV), contributed sketches to TV and radio comedy shows and had short stories published in national anthologies.
That doesn’t make me a novelist but I hope it gives me a push in the right direction.
