A Q&A with the author

Are any of your characters based on real people?

There’s always an element of me in my heroines. Not necessarily the teenager
I was, but the teenager who I wanted to be that got to date tousle-haired art boys, always had a snappy comeback and knew how to source really good vintage dresses.

Did you always want to be a writer?

Always, always, always. Never even contemplated being anything else!

What was your favourite book as a teenager?

I was a sullen, pretentious teenager rarely seen without a copy of Sylvia Plath’s
The Bell Jar or Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger.

If you got in Doctor Who’s tardis, where (or when) would you go?

Hmm, maybe Paris in the 1920s. Or maybe even to go back to my teenage years but knowing what I know now. That would be the ultimate do-over.
