There are lots of people who I would love to follow me. @AlfieBoe followed me and chatted to me for a bit, but then disappeared ;0(

It takes about a week 2 get 2grips with twitter but fellow tweeters r all so welcoming & helpful you'll feel supported all the way

How do you make your tweets unique?

My debut novel DEAD GAME is usually mentioned somewhere - but generally like to join in the chat & make sure my readers are enjoying

What question are we not asking here that we should?

Ive been writing since I was a child, usually making up mystical stories 4 my own enjoyment, but my inspiration 2 write Dead Game was ignited following the tragic death of my cousin, who served in Iraq with REME. Forging close friendships with families whose young men risk - & all 2 often lose - their lives serving in Iraq and Afghanistan spurred me on to complete/publish DEAD GAME/WAITING GAME. Thx to Twitter its gone global & Ive raise lots for our troops/those living with dyslexia.
