  1. When I was 5 years old I wanted to be… a Husky. Yes, the dog. Jack London messed me up.

  7. The one piece of advice I would give my teenage self… Bad feelings don’t last forever.
  8. If I had to choose between saying everything I think or never speaking again… I basically say everything I think now and it definitely makes things exciting.
  9. My favourite city in the world… London for personal reasons but I love visiting new places.
  10. The person I call when I need cheering up… I read a book.
  11. The best thing about being a writer… You live your life always believing the best is yet to come.
