My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. My mother was a great one for maxims, me less so. However, I'm a great believe in optimism, however unfounded. Plus I always like to have my next holiday booked and planned.
Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
A. Good bread with extra virgin olive oil and salt.
Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. I'm a mother, so anything to do with my kids and the word 'harm' is terrifying.
Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
A. The global banking crisis, and the way the bankers continue to profit from it.
Q. What do you regret most?
A. I had a trip book to go see my mum but I got the worst flu I've ever had, and couldn't travel. Five weeks later she died.
November 19, 2010I am so looking forward to 'The Mistress of Nothing' coming out in the US. This will be my 'American debut' and I really hope that readers in the US enjoy the book. I'm so pleased to be working with Touchstone, Simon & Schuster.
Publication isn't for another seven weeks.... but the countdown is definitely on!
