Q. Which other EAFOL 2016 participant are you most excited about?
I cannot possibly answer your first question without offending everyone else. Sorry – but one of the joys of the EAFOL is that all the writers are exciting and inspiring.
Q. Which book(s) are you reading now?
At the moment, I’m reading Thérèse Raquin by Émile Zola – one of the greatest psychological horror stories ever written.
Q. Which literary character would you invite to dinner? And why?
Villains always make for more interesting dinner party guests that heroes so this one is easy: Good evening, Professor James Moriarty.
Q. There have been some interesting additions to the dictionary over the years. Which word would you remove?
I would not remove any words but I’ll admit that I find text abbreviations quite annoying.
Q. Who would write/ illustrate the story of your life?
Andrew Lycett wrote such brilliant biographies of Doyle and Fleming that he might even make my life sound interesting.
