Thanks for having me ‘in the booth’ Ruth!
What’s your writing background? When did you begin writing and what inspired you?
I was always pritty good at England at school innit!
Seriously, as a spotty teen, I used to meet up with fellow Mancunian writer and school-pal, David Barber, and we’d chat about the books we’d read and writers we admired (while I beat him at pool). It was mainly horror, back then; namely, the late great James Herbert, Dean Koontz and Stephen King. But then I read a novel called Switch by William Bayer that I’d picked up in a second-hand book stall up town for 50p (two murder victims’ heads were ‘switched’ to confuse the cops). This, er, turned my head to crime fiction.
Dave and I used to swap each other’s latest attempts at amateurish short stories and offer feedback, but we didn’t know what we were doing really. We went our separate ways, though…
