Tell us about yourself and how you got into writing:
I am a journalist and writer living in Dorset, UK, with my wife, rampaging toddler And newborn son. I write about technology, innovation, green issues and political commentary for various publications including The Independent, The Guardian, Wired, Private Eye and International Business Times. Skerryvore is my first, and hopefully not last, novel!
Tell us about your stories:
I write fantasy for young teen and YA age groups. I am currently writing the sequel to Skerryvore – the second book in the Dark Net series.
What kind of success have you had?
Skerryvore is my only novel and recently released but has an excellent average review score of 4.8 stars out of 22 reviews on Amazon UK
What traps do you see for young/developing writers?
Getting too excited and telling everyone about your story before it’s written is a big mistake. Your story has an energy that needs to express itself through the writing. If you go around telling everyone about it, you dissipate that energy and dilute the focus from where it should be going – into writing the book!
Give us an insight into a time you wrote a scene with feeling.
The final scene of Skerryvore where all the separate threads of the story come together in an emotional and action packed finale that ends on a killer cliffhanger!
