“So you’re a writer, people say. And in what genre, they ask, knowledgeably. Dread question. Well, I say, after a long pause, I write fantasy. Sort of. My stories are usually mysteries, so you could categorise them that way, too. With quite a touch of the magical, definitely magical. These days, I add, I often illustrate them, too. Usually with plant designs. I see, says the enquirer, now thoroughly confused. I do have an eye for the quirky, I add, unhelpfully.
Well, yes, perhaps that’s it – quirkiness is the common factor in all my stories and artwork. So perhaps I’ll just call it the Quirky Genre – and becoming ever quirkier, I reckon. It’s a label I can live with.”
