  • About Me

    Avis Hickman-Gibb has been a story–teller for as long as she can remember. She discovered a talent for Chemistry in her second year of senior school and went on to read Environmental Chemistry at Salford University, gaining a Division One BSc. She put this to good use in the Information Technology industry, working for several manufacturers, eventually specialising in Stockbroking and Fund Management software in The City of London. She retired from the fray to raise a family.
    But she still loves to tell stories.

    Why do you write?

    I write to still the voices in my head. This makes me sound insane, but when I'm in the zone it really is like I have someone whispering to me. I find inspiration in most things, which sounds quite tacky and full of saccharin - but if you read some of my stuff you see that's not the case. It's just most every day events can trigger a 'what if' idea and have me off planning a story

    Any favorite authors? Books?

    I don't usually quote favourite authors, as I am a vociferous reader and storm through books. I rarely remember who I like - but I do remember the writing. I can say that authors like the LMs - Alcott & Montgomery - were early childhood favourites. I loved their attention to detail and their simple way of telling a story with no tricks. I like books that surprise me - perhaps by being better than I anticipated, and ones that have unexpected twists.
