Q. Where do you do your writing?

A. Stories can be written anywhere.  I write in my office with the door firmly shut, but some writers like having people around them when they write and others need solitude so much that they'll take themselves down to the garden shed.  When I've had no choice, however, I've written on trains, in cafes and on the beach.  I always keep a notebook to hand, just in case.  The whole first draft of 'The Beast of Whixall Moss' was written on a series of train journeys between author events.

But my office is the favourite place.  When I come down in the morning and switch on the computer, I feel as if I've come home.
