“I live with my two over indulged dogs in Middlesex, UK in a house that looks as though it has seen better days, but probably hasn’t. My height is 5 foot 4 inches, although I can manage to look taller in heels, or on a stepladder.

As for the dad, well all I can say is that the book is not autobiographical. I don’t know where any of the characters came from really, they just took over. Some were more forceful than others.

As for Rambo, where would a book be without a dog?
