Gareth’s latest novel, King, has just been published. Writing is done at night, in a dark room, next to a small window.
Q: Married? Children? Animals?
A: Embarrassing cliché. Married my high school sweetheart in 1999, we’ve been quietly at war ever since. Have two beautiful children, Jordann (8) and Jennifer (11). Four dogs, three of whom are highly pedigreed. Remaining dog has not seen itself on glossy posters of dog breeds and, as a consequence, lives miserably in the shadow of highly pedigreed siblings. Three cats, one of whom is missing a leg courtesy of a recent successful game of ‘fetch’ involving a moving car tyre, attached to a moving car wheel, attached to a moving car.
Q: How long have you been writing?
A: Since I was nine. I discovered that young girls were rather fond of rhyming couplets so I supplemented my weekly pocket money with paid-for love poems for my poetically challenged male classmates. Measured against a kind of ‘tuck shop’ index, it was unquestionably the most lucrative writing period of my life.
