I have been asked the question above quite a few times since I began writing my first novel and it may be a question you yourself might be interested in knowing. Every author has their own reason or reasons as to why they write. I write because I enjoy telling dramatic stories, but more than that I write because I like to challenge perspectives and views. Never one to tip toe around certain subjects, I enjoy writing stories that will spark a discussion or open up a cordial debate. What is the point of writing a book if no one is going to sit around and talk about it?
