MARTYN BEARDSLEY Q&A

What would you rather be – a smuggler or a Revenue man?

On the A1 to Cambridge stuck in a traffic jam and needing to go for a wee. I almost didn’t make it!

A letter from the past like the one in the story. I’ve traced my own family tree and I love finding out more about people long ago.

Tea – it was one of the main smuggled items. I drink gallons a day and can’t write stories without it!

I think I’d build a fake toilet with horrible smells coming from it – they’d never look in there.
