Q: What do you do as a hobby?

snap

Collect films. Take photographs. Work in my garden.

Q: What’s your favourite food?

snap

Cantonese.

Q: Do you feel younger or older than your current age?

snap

Much, much younger.

Q: How long have you been a writer?

snap

Since my early 20s, although there was a gap of about eight years when - except for work - I hardly wrote a word.

Q: Where do you do your writing?

snap

Early drafts in the local library - so I don't get distracted by things at home. Then, when I've got the story fixed, in my room at home.

Q: Where do you get your greatest ideas from?

snap

I have absolutely no idea. They just arrive.

Q: Which of your own characters do you most identify with?

snap

Flip in Storm Horses (to be published in 2015).

Q: What do you do to combat “writers’ block”?

snap

Sit down and write. Just write. Write anything. Sometimes the results are good. Most often they're awful, but that just makes you think: 'I can do better than THAT!'

Q: What book do you wish you had written?

snap

Framed by Frank Cottrell Boyce. Actually, I wish I'd written all his books. He's the author I most envy. What a talent!

Q: What advice would you give to aspiring authors?

snap

Sit down, sit still and then write.
