While working as a decorative painter in Greece, I collected folk tales, many of which, to my amazement, were recent.
Once a particular story flashed in my mind as a film. and that was it - a week or so later the first draft of 'The Elemental' was born. Although written in 2012, I started pitching just now, so wish me luck. :-) It is based on an amazing true story that reads like fantasy - but then the world is far stranger than we are led to believe!
That research has inspired me to write fantasy and since 2012 I've been working on a trilogy - The Folk of the Twill. The first book is out; and now I'm in the process of revising and editing the other two..
