Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Arianna Huffington has said it better than I can: 'Failure isn't the opposite of success, it's the stepping stone on the way to success'.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. People (ok, my husband) twiddling about with his iphone when I’m trying to talk to him. Obviously it is totally fine when I do it though…

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Bridget Jones. She has to be one of the most loveable characters of the last century. I also believe that chick lit as we know it would not exist without her.

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

A. To be a brilliant singer. But only if I could be as good as Adele, or Leona Lewis, or Barbra Streisand. I wouldn’t want to be mediocre.

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

A. Other than reading do-ing noth-ing. I bet no one else has been honest enough to say that, right? I am never happier than when I have nothing at all to do.
