Did you always want to be a writer?
I always enjoyed writing fiction in school, and English literature was one of my favourite subjects. I also liked the idea that one day I might write a novel, and for a few years had ideas about what I might write about. When I did start writing my first full length novel, a comedy, it was for the challenge of seeing if I could do it. After that, I found that I just wanted to keep writing and more novels followed.
