My dream holiday destination…

is always going to be Italy. The Cinque Terre, Lunighiana, Elba, Tellaro…

If I were to be stranded on a desert island, my one luxury item would be…

Never-ending paper with everlasting pen attached.

The last song I listened to… OR The first album I ever bought…

Hunky Dory by David Bowie – still one of my all-time favourite albums.

My guilty pleasure…

Very dark chocolate (apparently very good for the brain!)

The last time I went to the cinema…

Beauty and the Beast in Brighton with my daughter. It was magical. I loved it.

If I had to choose between saying everything I think or never speaking again…

Definitely saying everything I think – this would be much better fun!

If I had to choose between appearing on Strictly Come Dancing or X Factor…

Absolutely Strictly – and I wouldn’t need much persuading…

When I was 5 years old I wanted to be…

A teacher.

If I could go back to any time in history…

I love the 1920s – I think I’d be a good flapper…

The best thing about being a writer…

is researching interesting subjects and places and then getting to travel there too!
