Chats with other writers are back:)

Yep, my interview is back, yeah!!!!! I am very excited to reveal new questions with new writers. It is really cool because I think it gives others a chance to look behind the curtain and see how writers do their thing. And that we all do it differently

Before I reveal the writer I interviewed, I thought I would share with you a couple of things I have been up to. I was offered an chance to chat with Working Writers about my book and how I write. Here is the link; Let me know what you think:)

Also I was given an opportunity to write an article for I wrote an article about our reaction to bad times and compared it to the generation that handled WWII. Its called Are Movies a Reflection? The link is

I hope you enjoy it. I am going to be writing more articles and hopefully have more interviews so stayed tuned:)

Now to introduce my friend MJ Walker who is a fine writer. She wrote one of my favorite book's Black's Magic about a female James Bond.

What was the first book you remember loving? Do you still own it?

The first book I recall loving was Jane Eyre. It used to belong to my Mum when she was a girl so the book is at least fifty years old. I still have that very book and it's still my favourite novel of all time.

What kind of books do you like to read? Do those books have an affect on your own writing?

I tend to read non-fiction these days, informative books on history, the universe, the planets etc. I usually find a lot of inspiration and ideas from these.

Of all your works what is your personal favorite?

I think my personal favourite has to be Black's Magic and Addison Black and the Eye of the Bastet. I loved creating Addison Black and her world. I love writing action and weaving stories around historical fact.

Do you have a favorite character that you created?

I actually have two favourite characters. Firstly Addison Black because she has a lot of qualities I most admire, and she is who I'd most like to be like. And Tess from Snap Shots. This is because I put so much of myself into this character that I came to identify with more than any other.

What is your favorite character from another writer?

My favourite character from another writer again has to be Jane Eyre!!

Do you prefer one genre' to another?

Science Fiction, action and horror. These are my favourite genre's to read or watch for that matter. Though like most people I am a sucker for a good love story.

Do you like the feel of a book in your hands or do you prefer an electronic device?

I do prefer a book in my hands, but I am in two minds about electronic devices. I see the benefit and I believe that anyway to save paper, preserve trees is good, but I also don't like relying on electronic devices for everything. I'm very much a traditionalist and prefer simplistic ways of living and doing things myself.

Can you tell us about what your working on now?

I actually have two novels on the go at the moment. There is a third instalment of the Addison series and a new novel which is a mix between science fiction, horror and a love story. It's very different from what I've done before. Unfortunately work tends to get in the way a lot and after a full day at the office my mind is always too tired to write. I still manage to fill it with new works of poetry which will always be my first love.

Thank you for such a wonder re-introduction to my interview section. I really appreciate it:)
