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 is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?
A. Reading of course!
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 is your biggest pet peeve?
A. The global banking crisis, and the way the bankers continue to profit from it.
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!
