Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. 'Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.' C. S. Lewis

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Don't roll your eyes: writing the first chapter of my latest Big Idea (the stage when you're still madly in love before it becomes a 'steady relationship' that you have to work at).  This would be happening in my office/treehouse, a glass-fronted shipping container in the branches of the oak tree in my garden in the country.  If I had an oak tree.  Or a garden in the country.
On equal pegging would be fossil hunting in Lyme Regis, or eating blue cheese.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. Wasting my teenage years being sulky and miserable when I should have been having fun.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. My mother-in-law: the nicest person I've ever known, and consequently the most loved.

Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?

A. Swimming/watching Game of Thrones.
