1) As a child what did you want to do when you grew up?
I always wanted to join the army. In fact, at eighteen, I applied. But I never heard back from them! Only in later life did I begin to suspect that my mum hid their response from me. The older I grow, the more I suspect it. Sadly I will never know the truth.
2) Who were your favourite childhood authors?
Enid Blyton. I devoured every Famous Five novel, but the book that stuck in my memory was The Magic Faraway Tree. Unfortunately, I read this to my own children a few years back and wished I hadn’t. It really hasn’t stood the test of time.
