"Even before my own passion for reading grew, I was surrounded by books and drawn to the horror/thriller genre and the genius of Stephen King. I remember my mum reading me 'The Shining' when I was young, and then 'Carrie' gave me nightmares for months!
Later, I discovered Dean Koontz and James Herbert and fell in love with Roald Dahl's
'Tales of the Unexpected', 'Kiss kiss', and 'Someone Like You' as well as Jeffrey Archer's
'A quiver full of Arrows,' to name a few.
I love books and buy them all the time. I simply cannot walk past a book shop and so I have hundreds of books lining my shelves. It saddens me to accept I may never read them all, but from my obsession a desire to write burgeoned, and now I've started, I don't think I'll ever stop.
I recall my very first teacher at my very first parents evening telling my mum and dad,
'He has to be a writer!' Now decades later, I feel so blessed to be doing what I love and, fortunately for me, people seem to like it..."
