'An airport novelist'

3 April 2006

'I'm as proud as anything to be called an airport novelist; how great that somebody should want to take one of my books as a companion on a journey. I don't write to impress people. My intention is to carry them along by saying that first one thing happened and then another and another. People everywhere love stories and want to hear about hopes, dreams, disappointments, misunderstandings, rewards, loss - the human lot. That's why I'm so glad to be part of Quick Reads, an initiative designed to get adults who are reluctant readers back into this wonderful and rewarding habit.'
