I just stop, and do something else - go for a walk, drink a glass of wine, read a book or two or five. Until now that's worked (but the plots of my novels are not fiendishly difficult!). (less)

You can have conversations there that you're not brave enough to have in real life. You can be someone else for a while. (less)

5 Questions I get asked all the time

WHAT ARE YOUR BOOKS ABOUT?

I always panic slightly when someone asks me this question. When you've written over a hundred thousand words, and edited them and been so submerged into the plot for so long, it's difficult to sum up a story in a couple of sentences, which is roughly all you get before people start glazing over.

“Philippa Mitchell was eighteen years old when she left England. She left behind her bedroom, that cocoon of misery in which she’d imprisoned herself; her parents, with their forced, hollow cheerfulness; and the pieces of her heart, smashed to smithereens two years ago with a phone call that came in the middle of the night.”

Nadine shrugged. ‘I will spend this evening asking myself, What would Anya Amasova do? And she would definitely never be without her passport.”
