Where did you grow up?
Manchester, the United Kingdom
When did you start writing?
I used to write tons when I was a kid, and was always shoving stories under the noses of friends and family, but then life got in the way and I forgot all about it. I’ve started with a couple of little things through the years, but never took it serious. It was September last year that I really started
What made you start writing?
I read an article about the term Limerence and really liked the word. It felt like such a romantic
word for such a dangerous thing. I didn’t think too much about it at first, but then slowly I started to get ideas and it just wouldn’t go away so I sat down and started writing.
Is it something that you have always wanted to do?
Honestly, yes. As a kid I remember saying that I either wanted to be a teacher, an archaeologist or a writer.
What is your favorite genre to read, and do you have any favorite books or authors you would like to recommend?
I read anything. Literally anything, though of course I have favorites. I prefer paranormal or dystopian type books. I’m not too keen on books with ghosts or fairies in them or anything too preachy. I have a lot of favorite authors. Mark Tufo, Jesse Petersen, Charlain Harris.
What about to write?
I tend to write paranormal books- vampires, zombies, that sort of thing. Though I have an idea
for a crime thriller and a romance in the beginning stages.
Do you write full time? If not, what do you do?
I write in my spare time, which is basically from about 8pm to 1am when the children have gone to
bed. I work in an office doing accounts and paperwork and other boring stuff.
Do you ever base your characters on anyone that you know, or are they solely from your imagination?
Yes and no. In Limerence a lot of the characteristics of Rachael are from my best friend Kate,
and in my new book Odium I asked on my Facebook page if anyone wanted a character named after them in return for filling in a survival questionnaire. A lot of the characters- though not all- are based on the people that filled these in. Their answers are what helped to build the characters, though I’ve obviously embellished an awful lot.
Tell us about your latest book. The story/plot.
My latest novel is Limerence.
When Mr Breckt moves to the Island, everyone’s lives are sent spiralling out of control. Mr Breckt develops a strange obsession with Mia Lawrence, one that he can’t control no matter how much he
Mia loves her fiancé Oliver and fights for their love at every turn, but can his paranormal powers win her over before it’s too late for everyone?
With his obsession spiralling out of control, he will do whatever it takes to get her. He’s not used to having to take no for an answer.
What genre is it?
It is a dark paranormal romance.
Who is your favourite character?
Donovan, one of Mr Breckt’s henchman, and Rachael.
Chris! I literally hate that guy! I was so sorry that I introduced him to the book. haha
What are your hopes for it?
Worldwide recognition, film rights, red carpets, you name it! Haha. Honestly, I don’t know. I just know that I love the feeling I get when I know someone has read and enjoyed it. If I can have that a couple of thousand times over then that would be ace.
What’s the next project that you’re working on?
My next book is called Odium. It is a dystopian post-apocalyptic zombie book, and I am so excited for it. It’s totally different from Limerence in a lot of ways.
What’s the best piece of advice that you have been given in regards to your writing?
Believe in yourself.
