I have decided to look again at what influences my writing. So this section is still under construction. I am influenced by other writers but I do not read a huge amount so other writers do not influence me as much as other things. I have always been interested in psychology and now increasingly philosophy so they are gaining influence on what I write. Science and the nature of the universe – our understanding has changed quite a lot since I was a University and this is something which make me think.

Art influences me at the time when I look at it and it triggers new ideas and also when I try to create my own images. Music is similar when I listen to it – I have never managed to make music, even though I come from a musical family.

I have been to see many plays in the last few years and they influenced my first novel and several of my short stories.
