ALI SPARKES – AN AUTHOR? SHE DIDN’T EVEN COME TOP IN ENGLISH! HOW ON EARTH DID THIS HAPPEN?!!

Eventually, after working backstage in the big theatres of London’s West End, being a Bluecoat at Pontins (including a spell as a juggling unicyclist’s sequinny assistant) and singing in bands, I got a proper job as a reporter in my home town of Southampton. Even then, writing for a living, I didn’t know I was meant to be an author. I went into radio and stuff.

It took me years to work out that writing stories was my thing, and now I have no idea how I missed it in the first place. It was OBVIOUS like a 15 foot glowing neon sign buzzing on and off outside your bedroom window all night.

OK. Took a while for me notice it, and I spent some years also running a magazine and writing comedy for regional and network BBC radio, but now that I have worked out what I really am I LOVE IT and there is nothing, but nothing, that I would rather be.
