Q: Do you have a lucky writing talisman? If so, what is it?

A: Tea, wine and cigarettes work well for me.


Q: Do you have a favourite quote? (From a book, film, song, speech…)

A: ‘Fiction is the truth inside the lie, and the truth of this fiction is simple enough: the magic exists.’ – Stephen King, dedication to It


Q: If you could teleport yourself anywhere, real or fictional, where would it be and why?

A: I’ve never really travelled much – so I would travel to all the places I’ve never seen, starting with a tour of the US. As for time travel, I don’t know. I love to read history but not sure I’d like to live through most of it!
