  • 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    Unpublished writer (so far)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?
    Are your reading habits ...?
    Who is your favourite author(s)?
    Henning Mankell
    And your all time favourite books? (You can change these at any time, by the way ...)
    Apart from Mankell, 'The Scent of the Night' and 'The Shape of Water' by Andrea Camilleri, 'Wire in the Blood,' Val McDermid. Getting away from violent crime. No.1 Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith. Sherlock was my childhood favourite.
    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?
    I have put together an unorthodox crime fighting team in my novel, diverse and female orientated. Their opponents are mercilessly brutal, but team work and brains triumphs. My masterplan is for them to be the hub for stories, both screen and print.
    Your worst habit?
    Trying too hard not to be derivative, worrying that I may have got an idea from something read or seen. I have to write another thousand words then, when I go back, I am usually reassured that it is original and in good faith. Wastes a lot of time
    Your opinion on the books industry?
    Too much celebrity and hype, but good books still get through
    Where do you write?
    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?
    I am nearly seventy, just retired from working in mental health. Loved it. Hard to let go, but have now found writing, loving it. Wife calls me Gethin the pit pony because. like them in retirement, my mind and body is free to roam, not buried in work.

    Thought a profile pic of a new born elephant in Zimbabwe more interesting than my wizened face.
