My journey towards a career as a writer was not really a steady one. In fact, I've spent a long time trying to convince myself that I had a choice. Truth is, words are like a drug that you can never truly recover from. You can kid yourself and act as though you no longer are ruled by the insatiable world of literary subserviance. But no amount of running will change your fate. I write because I must. And through this painful, agonising process...I have come to discover great joy.
