  • Are you a ...?
    Unpublished writer (so far)
    What genre do you primarily write in?
    If you write in more than one area, what is your next most favoured genre?
    Other non-fiction
    Are your reading habits ...?
    Who is your favourite author(s)?
    A few current favourites among many would include Geoff Dyer, Bill Bryson, David Mitchell (the novelist), Haruki Murakami & Robert Macfarlane
    And your all time favourite books? (You can change these at any time, by the way ...)
    This is too hard! Maybe would include Three Men In A Boat, Catch-22, Great Expectations, The Catcher In The Rye, and in more recent years Cloud Atlas, The Bone Clocks and The Wind-up Bird Chronicle...
    What are your working habits when you write?
    Are you the edit-every-sentence-ten-times type, or do you prefer to let rip?
    Ten times? Why so little?
    Your ultimate writing ambition?
    To have a book published in print form by a proper publisher. Even if no-one bought it I'd love to have that J R Hartley moment when I'm in my dotage.
    Your worst habit?
    Self-criticism (among many)
    Your opinion on the books industry?
    Too much celebrity and hype, but good books still get through
    Where do you write?
    In a room at home which I also use as my 'office' (I work from home)
    What else do you want Word Clouders to know? eg: do you have 9 cats / like paragliding / eat nothing but tinned fish / work in the bath / live in Kettering?
    Apart from reading I love cycling and walking, music (folk, country, Americana etc), going to the cinema, cooking and eating, am married with two children (now young adults), have a daft Spaniel and live in east London.
