Do you have a strong work-ethic, which you apply to your writing routine? I dare say that is true, maybe I inherited it from my grandmother, and a long line of Lancashire and Yorkshire weavers. But then I love my work so it is no hardship to spend hours each day at the job.
I put my heart and soul into my stories, which is absolutely essential. You must lose your inhibitions and be entirely sincere, but yes, it does take hard work and dedication. Your fictionalised biographies must need meticulous research, even more so than historical sagas. How long do you spend researching a new project?

Roughly how long do you take to write a completed first draft? When I reach a certain stage with my work in progress, I start a little preliminary research on the next book, which gradually builds, taking several months altogether. All my books demand a good deal of research, for which I have a substantial library, plus interviews for my sagas. Breaking into the eBook market was another bold move, which has certainly worked.
Could you share any tips on how you made this a success? I entered the digital market back in , which were pioneering days for ebooks but I taught myself how to do the necessary formatting and put them up by way of experiment to see what would happen. Nothing much did at first but when the UK came on board in December and Santa Claus delivered a load of Kindles, they really took off. The more books you publish, the more you sell.
But they must be good, page-turning stories, well-written and not rushed, error-free and properly edited with good commercial covers. It all began back in when we bought a holiday home here, a little village house high in the mountains 20 kilometres from the coast. We fell in love with the village and found we were spending more and more time here, so finally bought a piece of land with an olive grove on it and built ourselves a house for our so-called retirement.
You have the best of both worlds — Would you share a couple of things that you love most about your home country and your new one? We do have the best of both worlds as here in Spain we can avoid the British winter. Almeria is the last designated desert in mainland Europe so in the daytime we can enjoy some sunshine and gardening, and as the nights grow cold we can light a fire and be cosy.
The Spanish people are very friendly and we have a good life here with many friends of all nationalities. Could you give a seasonal insight as to how Christmas in Spain varies to our traditional one in England?
