When they first approached me about writing a novel I was like ‘really? Me?’. Then they said they’d have someone write it for me and I just could not bear the thought of that. Not knowing what’s in it and not making it personal to me. I did want to venture out into that world and see if I could give it a go.
I guess people don’t think about the hard work behind the scenes, they just pick the book up and read it?
No and I love that, I love just picking up a book and reading the story and you don’t think about how much hard work as gone into it, but that’s not part of why you write a book, you write because you want to lose yourself in an imaginary world. Even though it was hard writing it I got to lose myself in an imaginary world, in a different world and go off to another place basically.
