What made you want to write?I've been interesting in writing for as long as I can remember. I used to produce comic strips as an academy pupil. As an adult I began writing short stories for my own muse. It was only after I'd left my work with the homeless did I realised there was a book in me based on that world.
What's different about your book?It is 'faction' rather than fiction even though identities are protected and locations have changed. It is naked in its representation of the world in which vulnerable homeless men and women and their support structure exists. It is highly emotional reminding the reader just how fragile life is. It has a different love-interest. The unrequited love between the two central characters trembles throughout then finally explodes in a frenzy of brute passion upon a barren, sea battered wall emphasising the nakedness and vulnerability of their world.
Who influenced you?I cannot pin-point any author who influenced me to write. Possessed with a creative psychology I realised early-on that I could paint pictures with words as well as with paint.
