  • Are you a ...?
    Unpublished writer (so far)
    What genre do you primarily write in?
    General fiction

    Are your reading habits ...?
    Who is your favourite author(s)?
    Michael Crighton, Seb Faulks, Peter May, Lynda la Plante, Robert Harrisetc
    And your all time favourite books? (You can change these at any time, by the way ...)
    The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe I remember from my first years of teaching along with The Silver Sword by Ian Seraillier. I love The Book Thief ( some magical imagery)
    What are your working habits when you write?
    Are you the edit-every-sentence-ten-times type, or do you prefer to let rip?
    Prefer to let rip and edit afterwards
    Your ultimate writing ambition?
    To have a permanent stream of ideas and to produce work that I like enough to read out loud in public.
    Your worst habit?
    Referring back to the above about editing, I write quickly sometimes then I edit endlessly. I need deadlines so that I cannot just change another word, or add an extra adjective.
    Your opinion on the books industry?
    Self-publishing makes the most sense to me
    Where do you write?
    At a desk where I have my lap top in the middle bedroom.
    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?
    Sadly no cats anymore but very tempted to get another pet. It's healthy to have to look after another creature ( my wife told me as she stretched out on the couch as I peeled her a grape.) Have been writing things for years. Some excellent shopping list
