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. What are your most overused words or phrases?
A. I went through a phase when I kept saying 'crikey' which is an English expression, meaning 'gosh', that no one uses any more. My English husband (I'm Canadian) made me stop.
Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?
A. Trustworthiness, humour, and spark.
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. Definitely the ability to fly.
Q. Which living person do you most admire?
A. I was born cynical I'm afraid.
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!
