Great Interview with John M W Smith.



Name : John M W Smith (It’s my real name!)

Where are you from : Oxford, England.

A little about yourself `ie your education Family life etc  :

Topped my school in my final year exams. Went on to graduate at university with a BA(Hons) degree in history.

Fiona: Tell us your latest news?

A Russian publisher discovered me online and signed me up to provide my series of twist in the tale short stories anthologies to be translated into Russian as ELT teaching aids. The first one went to number one in the bestsellers chart at the best bookshop in Moscow. There is very little money in it, but huge satisfaction and a tremendous morale boost.

Fiona: When and why did you begin writing?

I began writing around 10 years ago. I saw a short story in a magazine and said, well, I could do better than that.

Where are you from?

Originally from Scunthorpe in England, but moved to Sydney, Australia with my family at the age of twelve.

A little about your self `ie your education Family life etc

Due to childhood illnesses at the age of six and seven, I missed school a lot and got behind in my lessons. There was also a bully of a teacher at the Primary School I went to, and unfortunately I became one of her victims for three long years. I leaned very little at school and so I fell between the cracks. Years later, this teacher was banned from teaching after injuring a child.

When I moved to Australia, my mother became ill, and as my father had to work long hours, I left school at the age of fourteen to help look after my younger siblings…

The 777 Writer’s Challenge


My writer friend H.H. Laura has challenged our group to the 777 Writer’s Challenge. First June Bourgo did the challenge, so now it’s my turn.

We have to take seven sentences from page seven or seventy-seven and post them on our blog. Then post links to all the other writer’s in the challenge. So here I go: My seven sentences from Ominous Love.

Page Seven:

He wraps his arms around my waist and gives me his doe-eyed look. “I’m sorry, babe, I don’t know what came over me. Honestly.”

“You’re full of shit,” I say, pushing him away. “You’re a jerk, so don’t try your ‘sorry babe’ crap on me.” I thunder down the stairs and slam out the door. No way am I letting him drive me home. Who knows what he’ll do.

Page Seventy Seven:

I hold my hands out. “But where were you? I found you on the beach stark naked …. Crap. Who were you with? Her?”

The smirk returns to his face. “I’m not discussing my love life with you.”

That’s it. I stamp on his foot. “No? But, you didn’t mind letting me fall in love with you, did you?”


Okay, now it’s my pals turn. Here are their links:
