Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Walk Home.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

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

A. I love walking, gardening, farming, reading, skiing, holidaying, being with my children, talking to my husband. I like doing so many other things it is amazing I get any work done at all.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. I should love to meet Elizabeth I and ask her about the mysteries of her time: her attitude to marriage, to Mary, Queen of Scots, the reasons behind her decisions.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. I very much admire Nelson Mandela for his ability to forgive and be happy.
