Having worked in a variety of industries, I’ve met many interesting people, and with a profound interest in what makes them tick, I’ve spent a lifetime of asking ‘What would I do in that situation?’ and ‘What if things happened this way?’, creating a multitude of plots and twists that I’d always dismissed until one storyline nagged me constantly and I decided to alleviate myself of the burden, committing my ideas to virtual paper. Assuming I’d run out of steam five chapters or so in, I amazed myself by writing two novels within a year and A Proclivity To Prurience was born. It was difficult to write, given the themes, but I felt it was a story that would resonate in the current climate. Writing between a part-time job and raising two young children was a task in itself, but every spare minute was spent doing so or thinking about doing, so and my characters took on a life of their own. I love character-driven tales with a psychological edge and aim to produce that kind of work myself, and I’m not afraid to tackle issues that some may find difficult… other than horror – I can’t read or write horror as I scare far too easily! Aside from writing and my family, my greatest passion is music and I can easily lose myself in a favourite album or song, rather like I do within a book I’m writing or reading, and a musician’s ability to move you on any level is pure genius.
