Why do you write?  I write to explore the human condition. Emotion: desire, envy, greed, joy, fear, worry, grief. Emotion underwrites, drives, rewards and punishes every aspect of our human life. Emotions are our undoing and our making. Tracking them takes us into the most extreme recesses of the human psyche and out to its…

Why do you write?   I write because I love it. I write because it makes me feel clever. I write because I have found it to be an outlet for my obsessive observations about people and life. My hope is that my writing makes readers laugh, feel and think. I am currently setting up my…

Why do you write?  I write because I have something to say and for the sense of self-fulfillment that publication offers. How did you come to writing? As a boy, I read very little and mostly for information. My masculine identity was bound up in what I could do physically, on the sporting field mostly…

Why do you write? Writing helps me better understand the world around me. It’s as simple and as complicated as that. If I didn’t write, I’d feel dumber and less human. As a journalist, I deal exclusively with facts, and a big part of my work is asking ‘why?’ so that I can help my…

Why do you write?  I do lose myself in the activity of writing; I’m often surprised it’s [already] 2 pm when it felt like minutes at my desk. The driving force is the mission behind the story. In the case of On The Road With Kids, thinking I had something more important to share than…

Why do you write?  I think I began writing to entertain myself. I travelled to Canada and the USA in 1994, during the very first years of email, and had at least as good a time writing about the trip as I did actually doing it. Quite sad, possibly. But it was a clue that…

Why do you write?  Writing is pure escapism, I can take my stories wherever I want. I’ve travelled extensively – some 37 countries – and I love taking my stories back to those destinations. I love the challenge of creating characters that my readers will fall in love with – or hate with a vengeance….

Why do you write?  I’d always had a fascination with books and writers, with writing movements like the Bloomsbury Group for instance. I like the sense of creation and imagination and the opening of worlds and promise for readers. I think Le Chateau started a bit as a challenge, a dare, could I do it?…

Why do you write?  Love of reading, creation, control, broadening perspectives, connecting people, and inviting feelings. How did you come to writing? After a lifelong love of reading almost anything and a long career working with children as well as having my own, it was time to finally pursue this particular creative challenge. What were…
