Why do you write?

I love to communicate – sharing thoughts and ideas and imaginings makes me happy! It’s like having a conversation with a whole lot of people!

Is writing your first love or do you have another passion?

My family are my first love.

What was the first book that made you cry?

A Little Princess.

What is the hardest thing about being a writer?

Words constraints – I can go on and on!

Name a fictional character you consider a friend.

Hercule Poirot.

Did getting published change your perception of writing?

No, not really! I just didn’t realise so much marketing was required!

Who inspires you and why?

Tanith Carey writes a lot about raising kids and parenting and is always so wise.

Which book deserves more readers?

Veronika Decides to Die by Paulo Coelho
