How old were you when you knew you wanted to be a writer?
Quite young but it wasn’t until I was much older and became chronically ill that I actually pursued it.
Who are your favorite authors? (Please limit your answer to five or ten.)
Edgar Allan Poe
The Soska Sisters
What are your greatest sources of inspiration?
Life in general offers the greatest amount of inspiration. There’s so many different people, situations and places to play with just on Earth let alone anywhere else.
What genre(s) do you write?
Predominantly horror and soft science fiction.
Do you have any current or future projects?
My first book is about to be published in the next week or earlier, through JaCol Publishing, an American Publishing company. My second – ‘A Demigoddesses Guide to Intergalactic Parenting’, is in the revision stage before I hand that to my editor and publisher. I am plotting the third and plan to make a movie in the future either based on my book series or a fresh idea.
Do you have an author website?
Do you have any blogs?

Tell us something interesting about yourself.
In 2000 just after the Sydney Olympics I met and trained with the Australian Olympic TaeKwonDo team at the Olympic centre.
Is there anything else you would like to share?
If you are chronically ill that doesn’t have to mean it’s the end of your life or self worth. In fact it can be an opportunity to make a fresh start and do something completely different – a brand new beginning. It may require sacrifice and swallowing your pride and accepting any assistance needed for your day to day activities, but there are still so many things you are capable of doing if you just open your mind.
