Do you think it helps or hinders a writer from having a big ego?

I think it helps, because it gives you the confidence to be able to market your work. I definitely don’t have a big ego. I am shy in telling people about my writing.

How often do you read your blog content from an outsider’s perspective?

I don’t, but perhaps I should, just to see what it looks like. I hope other bloggers like what they read.

I view my blog as an allotment garden. How do you view yours?

I view mine as a book waiting to be written.

What’s the first book you ever remember reading way back when?

The first book I read was ‘Janet and John’ books at school. Not that great, when all the girl did was help her mum cook and the boy helped Dad fix the car. My first proper book was Katie, a story about a young girl going to live with her grandfather.

Were you ever read to as a child, and by whom?

I don’t remember being read to as such, but I got my love of books from my dad.

Where do you like to read? At home on the couch? Whilst travelling? In bed? Where?

I tend to read where it is quiet, so I can concentrate on the book.

What are the most significant barriers to your creativity?

My confidence, and time. I work full time, so it is difficult to edit a book, write on a blog and work. Although I am lucky that my husband will cook for me when I get home.

Do you think blogging is essential, and if you do, why?

Not essential, not in the same way being in the real world is. I think there needs to be a balance between blogging and actually living. Going out, walking the dog, spending time with family. They are essential.

I am a fifty something mother of two grown up children, and one beautiful grandchild. I have been married for nearly thirty-four years. My first book was published ten years ago. I wrote my book Sticks and Stones because of my experience of being bullied at school.
