Author I draw inspiration from: I first decided to write mysteries when I discovered Tony Hillerman. But I also grew up reading the ladies of the Golden Age. More recently I have adored the books of Kate Morton.

Listening Woman
By Tony Hillerman

Favorite place to read a book: In the summer in a hammock under a tree and in the winter curled in an armchair by a fire with a mug of hot chocolate beside me.

Character I’d like to be stuck in an elevator with:  James Bond. He'd know how to get us out.

The moment I knew I wanted to become an author: My mother says I have been telling stories since I was four. I had a short story published before I left high school.

Hardback, paperback, ebook or audiobook: At home I like hardbacks. In the car audio books. On the beach Kindle. My books are published in all four and many of my fans buy in all four formats.

The last book I read: Louise Penny. Glass Houses.

Pen & paper or computer: I scribble early notes in a notebook but I write on a computer. I couldn't produce two books a year without one!

Book character I think I’d be best friends with: Deborah Crombie's Gemma James. Or Maisie Dobbs.

If I wasn’t an author, I’d be a: A professional photographer. I'd love to travel the world taking pictures. I'd also like to fly 747s.

Favorite decade in fashion history: 1920s. I'd love to dress like Miss Fisher!

Place I’d most like to travel:  I've been to many parts of the world. I still haven't done a safari in Tanzania.

My signature drink: Prosecco. Sometimes Mimosas or Kir Royale.

Favorite artist: Monet.

Number one on my bucket list: African Safari.

Anything else you'd like to add: One of the big treats about writing is hearing from my readers, telling me how my books have helped them through trauma and tragedy. It's a lovely, warm feeling.
