"I have written since childhood. It gives me a sense of well-being and creative release to be able to express myself on the page, but I also see myself very much as a working professional.
"I am particularity interested in how the relationships between people work and people's motivation for behaving the way they do.
"My writing has evolved over the years, and I now enjoy writing comedy with a dark edge. I am always inspired by the landscape of the coast."
