"When I'd finished my first novel in 1995, I immediately went down the usual route of trying to find a publisher. I signed with a very small press. The book was published and it did absolutely nothing. I'd naively thought that once I'd signed the contract I could sit back and wait for the cash to start rolling in but, of course, that didn't happen (in fact, I still have the remains of the microscopic first print run sitting in boxes in my attic!)."
