Excerpts

Who is your favourite fictional couple?

That’s a tough one! Maybe Sally and Mac from MacMillan and Wife, which was a TV mystery series when I was growing up. Mac was a worldly, slightly cynical police commissioner and Sally was his much-adored younger, naïve but intuitive new bride.

If you could rewrite your life, what would you change?

I’d have started writing fulltime earlier. Although I don’t know that twenty years ago I would have been as grateful and appreciative for all that I have now.

What’s your guiltiest pleasure? Watching The Professionals.

It’s an old 1970s British crime show starring Martin Shaw and the late Lewis Collins. I have the entire series on DVD.

Comments: At the Post

You have certainly had an effect on my life. You’ve written some of my favorite stories, I came to the Fanyons through you, and subsequently met some wonderful people and made some treasured friends. Never underestimate your influence.
