How did you know you wanted to be an author?: I always wanted to write but never had the time until I semi-retired. I decided one day that if I didn't start that day, I probably never would. So I booked a trip and wrote for a week. I so enjoyed it, I've been writing ever since.
What is your advice for aspiring authors?: Have a go. It's very rewarding.
Do you have any writing rituals or practices?: I prefer to write early in the morning, or at least before mid-day. My thought processes are fresher and there are less interruptions.
What message do you want readers to remember?: Just to enjoy reading.
