How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I borderline between fact and fantasy, often merging and blurring the two. As I believe there is a life after this one, it’s not difficult for me to do this. I would say this is an easy genre for me to write in. Having written other genres, including Historical Fiction, the paranormal genre doesn’t need so much research.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Don’t stop writing! Never mind your first novel isn’t selling. These days you need a catalogue of work as you compete against an ever increasing number of authors. Also, you need to know your trade. To be an author in 2013 means you have to be a promoter of your work as well. Building a profile and engaging with your readers is the key. There’s never been a better time to become an author, providing you understand it’s a tremendous commitment.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Dead Dreams was inspired by a young friend, who was unable to cope with life and commited sucicide. It made me think back to my own teen issues and how serious they were at the time. Although the novel is entirely fictional, many of the challenges Adam and Summer face are real. Teenagers in today’s world, as they have been through the decades, often can’t manage. Family issues, drugs and alcohol abuse, homelessness and Bulimia are all covered in this novel.
