Over the past years, life has given me enough to write fiction novels. "Snack van" was my first. That work reflected my underlying fascination of how individuals, who appear normal on the surface, will resort to anything to achieve their goals. Lust, drugs, money, revenge and crime are good writing topics.

My second novel, "The Inhibited" is about a dystopian future after a failed UK government policy to legalize all drugs. It explores themes of genetics, segregation, emotion and what really makes us human - is it ourselves or our environment, or both?

Somehow you need to re-immerse yourself back in "that world" where you should be when writing. I find if I go out and mix with friends, to receive new inputs the creativity comes back. Also a long train ride, plane journey - where your mind begins to wander and imagine again.(less)
