Who is your favourite author?

Cormac McCarthy, Murakami, Ian McEwan, Banville, Margaret Atwood, Hunter S. Thompson, ahh...why did I start this list, there are just too many.

If any, is there one book that has changed your life?

Wouldn’t go as far as to say “changed my life” but Wuthering Heights for a very specific reason. I re-read this book every year at midwinter and have a daydream where I cast and direct this powerful novel on film. Although there have been many attempts (Olivier chewing the scenery), I still don't think any director has successfully cast and captured the character Heathcliff (or the one that lives in my imagination). I’d like to lobby Peter Jackson to direct though – he’d be ideal.

What is your genre preference?

Introduction

Hi there, I'm an avid reader who tends to have about three books on the go at any one time. That way I can drop out of one world and into another as the mood strikes. A great book generates very real emotion and can shake, change and shape views.
