Full color. red some fun facts about herself I came late to writing I was in my late 30s before I wrote anything. The years before that had been busy with small children, and I seem to have fallen into writing almost by accident. Since then, I have never stopped books for children to begin with, then a period writing for both adults and children short stories also then for adults only when the childrens books, sadly, left me.
It has been a busy 30 years, but because writing is a solitary activity and I like the company of others, I have also always had other involvements with writers organizations such as Britains Society of Authors, with PEN, with the Royal Society of Literature, and, for six years, as a member of the Board of the British Library (the opposite number of the Library of Congress) which I regarded as a great privilege what could be more important than the national archive? I have always been an avid user of libraries; like any writer, much of my inspiration comes from life as it is lived what you see and hear and experience, but my novels have sprung from some abiding interest the operation of memory, the effects of choice and contingency, the conflicting nature of evidence and these concerns are fueled by reading serendipitous and eclectic reading. I am first and foremost a reader myself.
I dont think I could write if I wasnt constantly reading. I both wind and unwind by reading stimulus and relaxation both. I used to love tramping the landscape, and gardening, but arthritis rules out both of those, so I do both vicariously through books.
I live in the city now, but feel out of place I have always before lived most of the time in the country I miss wide skies, weather, seasons. Never mind, there are compensations, and London is a very different place from the pinched and bomb-shattered place to which I came as a schoolgirl in 1945 now it is multicultural, polyglot, vibrant, unpredictable, in a state of constant change but with that bedrock of permanence that an old place always has. I like to escape from time to time mainly to West Somerset, where we have a family cottage and I can admire my daughters garden she has the gardening gene in a big way and is far more skilled than I ever was bird-watch, walk a bit, talk to people Ive known for decades, and see the night sky crackling with the stars that the city blots out.
