I started writing 6 years ago when my son asked for a new bedtime story, inspiration struck for the Sir Snotalot adventure series, my son had a runny nose and was jumping on the bed that was the beginning of many adventures.
My words have touched hundreds of children over the past five years through my children’s book manuscripts I read at our local library once a week.
Basically I put love into words and use my son’s antics as inspiration. My daughter at 10 months has also started inspiring the terrible munchkin series.
I enjoy reading just as much as writing but going on an adventure is much more fun so come join the adventure hope to see you there.
What inspires you to write?
Each and every Children's Adventure i write is inspired by the antics of my own children, Sir Snotalot is based on my own 5 year old and the Terrible Munchkin is based on my 10 Month old daughter together they make a formidable team as well as provide way more than enough writing material for my books.
Tell us about your writing process.
I am both an outliner or a seat of the pants write, many times my stories will be sparked by something my kids have done or are busy doing and other times i'll get inspiration and sit and plan and plot but mostly they are the bedtime stories for my own kids.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Nope i don't talk to my characters i constantly throw ideas around the house hoping the people around me can give me some critique, a lot of the time its late at night when i write and i'm alone with my paper and pen.
Who are your favorite authors?
Terry Pratchett is one of those in writers that just does it for me, to mention just one book would not do the rest justice but the first Terry Pratchett i ever read was most definitely also the most difficult one to read.
The Truth with Mr Tulip i will never forget Mr Tulip.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I decided to Self Publish via KPD Select and Amazon as i'm a South African writer and well i wanted to be personally in control.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Real Paper books will always be in demand even if we are in the digital age, there is just something about holing a solid paper novel in your hand and the amazing paper smell also helps.
What genres do you write?
What formats are your books in?
