Why do you write?

It’s an excuse to hang around books, which is all I’ve done, one way or another, over the course of my career.

Are you a vivid dreamer?

Yes. It’s like going to the cinema for free every night. I so look forward to it. But they are strictly private screenings.

Where are you happiest?

(1) Reading in bed, with a dog at hand.

(2) In a green place, with warm rain falling. (3) With sea views.
