What inspired you to start writing, Roy? Was it the idea for Mutation, or was it a desire to write which then led to Mutation?
It's weird! I just always wanted to write. I'm not even sure why. I always felt I was never part on anything and didn't really want to be drawn in, like I was on the outside, looking in. We moved house a lot so I kept loosing/changing friends, so I guess I turned to books. I loved reading. I kept a journal for a few years, but then stopped reading and writing for almost twenty years. I'm so glad now to have this as a part of my life as I age. So, yes, in a way Mutation was a 'now or never moment'.
