My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. I may not agree with a word you say, but would defend to the death your right to say it was Voltaire's first, but it's a good one!
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. Sneakiness. Then I could creep about like a ninja: I could steal Philip Pullman's ideas for books, and he wouldn't even notice...
Q. What is your greatest achievement?
A. Abseiling in six inch heels! (Secretly, my first book, but the abseiling was pretty impressive.)
Q. What do you regret most?
A. I took a lot of dares as a child. I regret in order the incident with the train, the incident with the harbour, and especially the incident with the open window and the nun.
Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
A. I would meet Richard III, and I'd say 'Seriously though, did you kill the Princes in the Tower? This is for posterity, so be honest.'
