I am now examining my use of that in my new novel Monday's Child. Frequently the word is superfluous, a sentence needs to be rewritten or which is more stylish. Anyway, I find pre-editing boring but necessary.
I lived in Kent until my parents moved Surrey when I was six years old. By that age, I always ‘had my head in a book’ when I wasn’t making up stories. Apart from writing I enjoy my studies of classical Indian literature, reading for pleasure and research, visiting places of interest, cooking, gardening and creative crafts. Unfortunately, I have a sweet tooth which I try to control. Time spent with my family, most of whom live near me in Hertfordshire, England, is precious.
