Why do you write?
Because I’m a compulsive communicator. I also like structure and making things, so making sentences out of words and paragraphs out of sentences seems the obvious way of making sense of the world.
Are you a vivid dreamer?
Occasionally. I have ludicrous erotic dreams about dreadfully inappropriate people. I also dream about crashing the car. I hope these two things are not connected.
Where are you happiest?
Tuscany for joyfulness, Scotland for deep-seated ancestral at-homeness, and certain very specific places in the South Australian countryside for feeling at peace in my bones.
