I have lived in various places and done a variety of jobs, even started a couple of careers, but not a day of a writer's life is wasted. From the chicken farm in suburban Perth, Australia to the Easter Egg production line in Croyden, London, from Harrod's toy department at Christmas to First Class passenger lounges at Heathrow Airport, the many people I have met are not forgotten.
Places are also important and inspire my stories, but when everyday folk experience strange events that's when my imagination takes flight. But you won't find strange planets and creatures with weird names. My characters are the people who live next door.

In the dream she woke up seconds after opening the door to reveal her mother's doppleganger, the tender loving eyes subtly changed to reveal a malevolent soul beyond a child's understanding; now she opened the real door and what she saw was far worse than the dream.(less)

At present I am really enjoying Flashback and Purple by Sue Hampton. Just a matter of choosing what's next. I usually aim for a different country and time period from what I've just read.
Wake-Robin Ridge book 3 - Marcia Meara
Pattern of Shadows - Judith Barrow
Back to the Old House - Guy A Johnson
Sanctuary - Maureen Turner
My Magical Palace - Kunal Mukherjee
I am sure you will guess from my list and especially from my book reviews that I enjoy all sorts of books.

Sandscript in a Shoal

Charles Dickens and I have one thing in common, not literary success, but we have both been to Broadstairs, Kent, on holiday. He enjoyed summer holidays in a house now called Bleak House, where you can still stay. My earliest holiday memory is of Broadstairs, two summers blended into one set of memories. There was only me at the time and Mum and Dad did not attempt to stay in a hotel again.

“The huge ears flapped and it lifted its head to show off the long curving tusks adorned with flowers made by the children. When the animatronic mammoth trumpeted triumphantly, windows a mile away vibrated and locals called the police.”
Janet Gogerty, Shoal: A Thanet Writers Anthology
