Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Never say with eight words what you can say with nine. I don't really do mottos.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. I admire all manner of historical and mythical figures but I don't particularly identify with any of them.

Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?

A. Getting lost/early evening drinks

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. Muttley from The Wacky Races. (There seems to be an animal theme emerging. I've never noticed being particularly interested in animals before.)

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. Dancing. I would be an amazing dancer. All kind of dancing. Tap, tango, breakdancing, everything. I'd be the don of all things dance. For the moment I don't really dance. If you asked me tomorrow the answer might well be different.
