Why do you write? The main reason is that I enjoy writing a great deal; it must be in my DNA! Also, I like to think that my writing might prove useful or helpful or at least entertaining in some way.
What would you be doing if you weren’t a writer? I’d be an astrologer – which is what I already am!
What was your toughest obstacle to becoming published? Knowing who to approach.
What’s the best aspect of your writing life? Being inspired by beautiful words and concepts I know will be of interest to my readers.
—the worst? Shoulder ache!
What would you do differently if you were starting out now as a writer? Nothing in terms of my journey as a writer; I’m happy with my life as a writer and the journey to the present. Clearly, technology has made the platform very different to when I began writing and I would need to take this into consideration if I were starting out now.
What do you wish you’d been told before you set out to become an author? I wouldn’t wish for anything to change, as I believe we all jump through our own hoops for particular reasons; if not to learn something new, then to reveal our own hidden strengths and talents.
What’s the best advice you were ever given? Believe in yourself.
