When and where do you prefer to write?
For my first book I wrote almost every night from 9pm onwards after putting my son to bed. For this book it was less structured, more a case of writing whenever time allowed.
Do you need peace and quiet when you are wrting?
I can write with background noise but I generally need to be alone.
If you had the chance to co-write a book. Whom would it be with?
I can’t get my head around co-writing a book. Absolutely not for me.
Say someone asks if they can use your name in a book. Would you rather be the ‘good one’ or the ‘bad one’?
Always the baddie.
Who would you like/have liked to interview?
Where can I find you when you are reading?
Where can I find you when you are not writing/reading?
Doing the best things in the world, cooking, eating or drinking while listening to music.
What goes through your mind when you hold your new book in your hands for the first time?
Man, that was worth it.
How do you come up with a title for your book?
Tough question. Like picking the name of your main character, it just comes to you and feels right.
How do you pick a cover for your book?
I’ve always had a vision for my covers. When the first lockdown was over, I visited the Charles Rennie Mackintosh shop in Glasgow. I was drawn to an artists work and asked for the salesperson to pass on my details. The artist was a young woman called Ella Frost. Her work had a dystopian feel but highlighted the beauty of Hope and Light. Around a year later, when SpellBound made me an offer, I knew Ella could capture what I envisaged. I provided her with half a page of the book that is pivotal and she produced the wonderful cover.
