Robert Thompson

How long have you been writing?

Since I was in my teens.

What are you currently writing?

I’m just completing the final edit on my speculative detective novel.

What influences and inspires your writing?

What people say and do. What people don’t say and fail to do. I try not to analyse my writing, I just enjoy the creative process.

What are your ambitions for your writing?

To walk into Waterstones and find my book still hasn’t got a two for the price of one sticker on it.

Almost anywhere as long as it’s quiet and I have my laptop.

Who are your favourite authors?

Philip K Dick, Douglas Adams, Joseph Heller for Catch 22 and Raymond Chandler.
