Favourite book ever –
Worst question to ask a lifelong bookworm! I love so many but if you force me an gunpoint I would say ‘Cold Comfort Farm’ by Stella Gibbons. I adore it, it’s clever and funny and it gives me the warm fuzzies every time I read it, and I completely relate to the heroine, Flora Poste – I hate messes too!
Best moment of your life – I have to have two, the birth of each of my daughters. I am grateful every day that I have them, they mean the world to me and are gorgeous human beings.
Karaoke song –
I have the world’s worst singing voice, so you would never ask me to do karaoke but if I were made to, I would choose ‘You’re So Vain,’ by Carly Simon. It is my favourite tune to sing along to in the car.
Favourite film –
Raiders of the lost Ark. Indiana Jones —yum, yum.
A fun fact about you –
I once shared a jacuzzi with Joan Collins.
If you won £1,000,000, what’s the first thing you’d do –
Travel to all the places in the world that are on my bucket list, although £1,000,000 probably wouldn’t be enough to get it done. I have insatiable wanderlust, I think that is part of the reason I love to read so much. I armchair travel when I cannot travel for real.
Favourite place –
Key West in Florida, it has such a laidback vibe, and it’s lovely and compact to get around, with access to the ocean. I love the sea.
Favourite musical artist – Kings of Leon. Caleb Followill has a voice to die for.
If you could only have one album to listen to for the rest of your life, it would be – Oddly, given my previous answer, I would choose ‘Rumours’ by Fleetwood Mac. There is not one bad song on it, it is the perfect album, and I have a huge girl crush on Stevie Nicks. Another outstanding voice. I could listen to it on repeat and never get bored.
5 dinner party guests – Wow, this is a really tough question. You’d want a good mix to keep the conversation going. I’d have Stephen King, because I think he is smart and witty and he has interesting and outspoken views on politics in the US which fascinates me. Julie Walters, she makes me laugh. Phoebe Waller-Bridge because I love her to death and I’d love to talk to her. Marian Keyes, because she is such an inspiration to me as an author, plus her Twitter feed is hilarious, she would bring great craic. I should probably pick another man, shouldn’t I? Hugh Laurie. I think he’s had a really interesting career which I’d love to hear more about, plus he’s very attractive.
