Are you like any of the characters in the books?
I wish I was calm and sensible like Tumtum. But I suspect I’m more like Nutmeg, who is always in a dither.
Do you have any nicknames?
Not any more. But when I was very young my grandmother used to call me Hunka Munka, after Beatrix Potter’s mouse, because she thought I looked just like her.
What are some of the books that most inspired you as a child?
Winnie the Pooh, The Secret Garden, Goodnight Mister Tom, The Wolves of Willoughby Chase, The Wind in the Willows and Charlotte’s Web - but I was also an Enid Blyton fan.
What’s the best thing about being an author?
Finishing a book.
And the worst?
