Author Q&A
1. What is the first book that made you cry?

Two Catherine Cookson novels I read when I was sixteen.

2. How long, on average, does it take you to write a book?
If I’m not working and can write every day, approximately six months. If I am working and my writing is confined to weekends only it can take up to a year.

3. How do you select the names of your characters?
It varies. If I hear an unusual name that I like, I use it. A few years ago, on holiday there was a tour leader called, Davina which I thought was a lovely name and she became my heroine in a Christmas story. At 2019 Harrogate’s Crime Writing Festival in July there was a man sitting behind me called, Rupert. Instantly, I thought, he’s the next character in my story.
4. What creature do you consider your "spirit animal" to be?
I don’t know much about spirit animals, but I think I’d be a deer standing tall and proud in the highlands determined not to get caught or shot
5. What are your top 5 favorite movies?
Pride & Prejudice. The BBC adaptation with Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy.
Is This As Good As It Gets with Jack Nicholson
Whatever Happened To Baby Jane with Bette Davis
Angels & Demons with Tom Hanks
Murder On The Orient Express with Kenneth Branagh
6. If you were the last person on Earth, what would you do?
Write down my thoughts and feelings hoping they’d be found in years to come
7. What fictional character would you want to be friends with in real life?
Miss Marple. I love her powers of deduction. Her reputation and calming approachable manner.
8. Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?
Never, ever, give up. If you have a story to tell and have confidence in its merit just keep going. Eventually someone somewhere will read it.
9. What book do you wish you had written?
ABC by Agatha Christie. I love her twists and turns in all of her novels.
