1. How are you feeling today?
I'm aching a little – I went for a half-hour run yesterday and am feeling it now. BUT the sun is shining, the birds are singing outside my window and I am doing what I was born to do – write fiction!
2. What are you wearing?
Khaki combat trousers and a red t-shirt. And black glasses.
3. Where did you grow up?
In the south west of England, in a town not far from Gatwick Airport and the hills of the South Downs. It was less developed than today so I often explored on my bike and hung out with friends in the fields or on building sites!
4. Where are you at this exact moment?
At my desk in my home-office, on a mezzanine level that overlooks fields and forest , sipping tea and staring at my big flat screen.
5. What song is your guilty pleasure?
Anything by Alice in Chains or Queens of the Stoneage.
6. Where have you never been but want to go?
7. Favourite book from school?
Stanislaw Lem’s Solaris.
8. What’s your go-to drink at the bar?
Pineapple and cranberry with crushed ice.
9. Do you like flying?
I recently did a couple of long flights to California and back. I travel well. I love people-watching at airports, making friends on the plane, reading books and watching the latest movies. So yes, I like flying.
10. Poolside or beachside?
Beachside. Definitely beachside. I love the sound of the waves. I set 5fingers in Griffton which is by the sea. Check out the books if you haven't yet... JRx
