|Tania’s latest book.|
Tania is one of my writing heroes. I’ve known her since we ended up in the same critique group on our MA in Creative Writing at Bath Spa, and I’ve greatly admired her beautifully succinct and clever short stories ever since. As expected both of Tania’s collections of stories, published after our graduation in 2003, have attracted great reviews and won many prizes. Her latest book My Mother Was An Upright Piano sits permanently on my bedside table, so that I can regularly dip in and out of her magical world.
You can imagine I jumped at the chance when Tania asked me to guest her blog, Tania Writes. She has an intelligent set of questions she poses each of her visitors. You can read the whole interview here – I hope you like my answers!
PS. I was also delighted to see that Tania’s interview with me is featured in this week’s OpinionN8, an excellent Crouch End (London) online magazine.
