Some things about me

I love tea and cake. I cycle A LOT. I have a cockapoo – who chases birds but never catches any.


I write at any old time of day or night, even though I’m sure a structured work life would be helpful.

I like to read crime, like P.D. James and Patricia Highsmith. But I also like books by Ia(i)ns, like McEwan and Banks and Rankin. (Lee Child’s Reacher is a sort of guilty secret.) Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch and Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Traveller’s Wife are two of my favourite non-crime novels. I HATED We Need To Talk About Kevin, by Lionel Shriver

The best YA book I’ve read recently is We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. I’m currently reading Being Mortal by Atul Gawande (I heard him on BBC Radio 4 and then went to see him at the Bristol Festival of Ideas) and Seeing Voices by Oliver Sachs and The Outcast by Sadie Jones. I’d like to invite Atul Gawande for tea and brownies with Nicola Walker, the actress, Sandi Toksvig and Bill Nighy.The_Talented_Mr._Ripley_Cover

My favourite film ever is The Talented Mr Ripley.

I don’t really like rules or getting up early or toffee.

I like nice socks and woolly jumpers, and I’m frightened of birds because of the flapping.
