Interview with Jenny Colgan


Being such a busy mum, where do you find the time to actually sit down and write?

This is the most boring answer ever: I hire someone to look after the house and work when the children are at school. I’m just a working mum like everyone else, except I’m luckier because I get to pick my own hours, so it’s actually a lot less stressful. I am in total awe of women who work full-time, they do an amazing job, it looks so hard. 

What do you get up to on Mothers Day? Do you have any family traditions?

Interview with Koethi Zan


There were four of us down there for the first thirty-two months and eleven days of our captivity.And then, very suddenly and without warning, there were three. Even though the fourth person hadn’t made any noise at all in several months, the room got very quiet when she was gone. For a long time after that, we sat in silence, in the dark, each of us wondering what this meant for her and for us, and which of us would be the next in the box.

Releasing the Wolf (Cry of the Wolf #1) by Dianna Hardy
