And now I have to answer some questions. Well, here goes:
If you could change one thing, what would it be?
Only one thing? There is so much that needs to be changed. Right now though, one thing for myself – I’d make it lots easier to hop over to Ubeda in Andalucia to enjoy wine and tapas and a good old natter with my son.
If you could repeat an age, what would you choose?
I guess it would have to be the 1960s. The mid 60s was when I broke free from the stifling religion I grew up in and for some time after I carried a lot of baggage around. Missed out, really, on a decade which is supposed to have been a bit special for my generation.
What one thing really scares you?
Bad weather on steep and craggy hillsides.
If you could be someone else for a day, who would it be?
Just for a day, maybe I’d choose to be a Victorian boatman on the Weaver Navigation, someone like Solomon Whitaker, a character in my current novel.
I would like to pass on the Reality Award to:
I think I’ll pass this on to Alan Nicholls at Chez l’escargot, cos he’s a cyclist. And cycling is great. And so is Allan's blog really.
