The Sir Chocolate books are about a little man who lives in a world where you can eat everything, even the houses and the trees. I co-authored these books with my younger son, Michael. Sir Chocolate and his friend, Lady Sweet, have adventures together as various problems crop up in Chocolate Land such as the Baby Cookie Monster who has lost his mother and who is causing havoc while he searches for her and the Condensed Milk River which mysteriously dries up. The Sir Chocolate books are aimed at providing entertainment for parents and children and include simple recipes and biscuit art that children love making.
Silly Willy Goes to Cape Town (8 to 10 years) is a story and includes step-by-step instructions on how to make fondant art figurines and flowers and five lovely party cake recipes and instructions.
While the Bombs Fell (9 years upwards) is a fictionalized autobiography of my mother’s life as a very young girl growing up in the English town during World War II. It includes a few authentic WWII recipes.
When did you begin your writing career? I was first published in August 2016 and started writing a few years before that.
What’s your approach to writing? Are you a “pantser” or a planner? I have the basic story line in my head when I start and then I go from there. I suppose that makes me a bit of both as I go off in new directions when I start writing.
What’s your working style – morning or late-night writer? Definitely morning, I am not a good night time person at all.
Do you work at a computer or write long-hand? Long-hand? What is that? Just kidding, definitely I write on a computer.
What gets those words flowing, coffee or tea? Tea, I get up at 5 a.m. most days and make tea before I do anything else.
Favorite book: The Shining by Stephen King (Adult) and Little House on the Prairie series by Laura Ingalls Wilder (children)
Favorite movie: I don’t watch movies or TV.
Favorite musician: I like Queen (Freddie Mercury)
Awards/special recognition: Word Weaver competition Honorable Mention for my children’s short story. Two short stories in Dark Visions, an anthology of horror stories which was a #1 Amazon best-selling book pre-Halloween.
