<font face=”inherit”>I’m going to be a bit ropey the first fortnight of this because we’re moving house. The idea behind the move is to simplify our lives to spend more time on our interests, such as writing. So all good. I’m from Teesside in the UK but live in Mt. Barker, Western Australia. We’re moving to Albany soon. </font>
<font face=”inherit”>I used to read literature I suppose but since I’ve started my book I’m splitting my time between YA, urban fantasy and </font>Northern<font face=”inherit”> (UK) writers. Currently reading a book set in </font>Middlesbrough<font face=”inherit”>, near where I grew up. </font>
<font face=”inherit”>I don’t follow authors as such, just pick up what I fancy at the time. </font>
I’m working on a YA urban fantasy series with a historical, time-travel aspect. It’s set on the anglo-scottish borders and there are Border Reivers in it (I’d never heard of them either, to begin with).
I would love to just write something I’m proud of and Im confident enough to share with others. After that I’d love to write for a living. I’d also like to avoid being abducted by an Annie Wilkes type and having my ankles broken in a cabin out in the snowy countryside. As a minimum.
Nice to meet you all!
