Favourite place to write
My husband and I run our own business, so life is pretty hectic and I write whenever and wherever I can squeeze half an hour to myself. I always have a notepad in my bag.
This year on holiday our apartment had a beautiful balcony overlooking the sea and I loved writing there when the day was cooling down. The view was very inspiring.
I have two muses—David Bowie and my cousin. If I need an idea, I tell my cousin the general theme or problem and all she has to say is one word and it sends me down a path I may not have thought of before. When writing I like to listen to music and, because of David Bowie’s diverse catalogue, I can usually find a song or album that fits in with the mood of my chapter/story/character and use that to help fine tune the mood.
Favourite way to celebrate writing “the end”
I don’t really have a way to celebrate but as soon as I’ve finished a piece, I send it off to my cousin to read and eagerly wait for her feedback.
Favourite time of day to write
I usually end up writing late at night because of my busy schedule. There are fewer distractions and I don’t feel like I’m missing out on family time. I’ve written to the early hours of the morning on occasion.
Favourite way to relax
Reading a good book in a deep, hot, bubble bath.
