Born and bred in Leeds on a street called Torre Mount (pronounced Torrie).
I always had faith that out of the bad times, good ones are waiting just around the corner, keep the faith and you won't go wrong and just keep on believing and you'll get there or thereabouts. Twenty odd years ago I moved to London and began working in a very exclusive apartment block on Chelsea Harbour. It was there that I was to have daily dealings with mega celebs who treated all of the staff almost as their equals (does wonders for your confidence). These days I live a simple life and enjoy writing.
