The Next Big Thing

I have been tagged for this Q and A by the lovely Sarah Dunnakey, who I envy desperately for having had a story broadcast on Radio 4 recently.  She's also had success in several high-profile writing competitions, and I can't wait to read her novel.  You can read her answers here.

Hope you've all had a peaceful start to the New Year, and are mostly filled with resolve rather than pastry.
