I spend my life behind the wheel of a van crossing Europe as a driver. As such, it gives me plenty of time to think about characters, my characters, how to construct the story lines and how the plot will evolve. . It keeps my mind active and I enjoy it. When I reach my pitstops en route in Italy, France or Switzerland, I record my days thoughts on my laptop and write the chapters.
They say that the gift of middle age is wisdom so now that I am in the ‘midcentury’ phase of existence, it’s time to reflect on and re-evaluate my life. I look back on my achievements so far and wonder if there are likely to be anymore. It’s time to stop procrastinating and write the novel that I have always had inside me. It is a real concern that what I write about won’t interest anyone but me but now is the time to step out of my shadow and believe that all things are possible.
