TIM PARR grew up in West Sussex. He spent his early career in London and now lives and works in land-locked Oxfordshire. He has three grown-up sons and two senior cats. In his parallel universe he lives by the sea on a west facing bay, fixing up an old sailing boat while his imaginary spaniel snoozes by his side. Below The Strandline is his debut novel.

I work full time in my professional life so I am used to cramming in other activities in the limited time available. For me, the writing process is a welcome distraction. There is an energy released in turning exciting undeveloped ideas into words on a page and on the whole this keeps me motivated. I would certainly find it tougher if I had whole empty days stretching in front of me. In times when it is hard to focus, and believe me there are many of those, I roam. I might move my notepad or laptop to another room or head for a coffee shop with a background hubbub or a communal table in the local library for peace and quiet. Occasionally I have been known to get in the car and drive to a motorway service station to kick-start the creative juices. I am quite hopeless at writing early in the morning and when I get the opportunity I like to tap away into the night while the rest of the house is sleeping, with George the cat and maybe a single malt to keep me company.
