Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
I loved reading, so I suppose that was the start. I went to a little English village school which encouraged writing. We used to go on a ‘school trip’ once a year and there was always a competition afterwards to see who could write the longest recall! I think, though, that I didn’t really seriously think about writing until I was in Year 7 (in Australia), when I found that I kept getting stories in my head that would annoy me until I wrote them down. They were nearly always historical and probably hysterical as well.
Does reader feedback affect your writing process? For instance when writing a sequel, have you found feedback or comments from readers on the first has caused you to change a part of your sequel?
