My Perfect Weekend interview – Alice Peterson

Full English or a super-food smoothie?

As a treat I love a full English. Every other day give me a smoothie — there’s less guilt!

City break or an escape to the country?

Escape to the country with my Lucas Terrier, Mr Darcy — off we go!

Bookshop browsing or exploring a library?

Bookshop browsing — libraries remind me of school and having to do work

Re-reading an old favourite or trying something different?

Trying something different

Action-packed or total relaxation?

Total relaxation please! With a massage and facial

Time to write or time to step away from the computer?

Definitely time to write. I’m never happier than when I’m living with my characters

Are you off to the latest exhibition or getting arty yourself?

Off to latest exhibition — I’ve just been to the Tate Modern, what a fabulous building!

Radio 2 or Radio 4?

Radio 4 — showing my age!

Dressing up to the nines or jeans & wellies?

Dressing up — gives me an excuse to go shopping

A trip to the cinema or a DVD on the sofa?

The cinema.   Love the big screen plus it’s good to get out of the house!
