Welcome, Nell Peters
How would you describe your writing style in only three words?
Nell: Quirky, humorous, succinct.
If you could have a relationship with one of your fictional characters who would it be and why?
Nell: Richard Ffinche in By Any Other Name, because he’s a great guy – and rich. You don’t meet many of those.
If you had to exist for a week in one of your books … which would it be? Would you be a central character or simply watch the story unfold from the sidelines?
Nell: By Any Other Name – because I know who the baddie is and I could save the day. I’d bound from peripheral character to heroine who gets her man.
Dead or alive literary dinner party: who would you invite, and what would you serve?
Nell: Agatha Christie, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Ian Rankin, PD James and Peter James. Pizza delivery – I’m a lousy cook.
If you had to write in a different genre which would it be and why?
Nell: Romance – my crime novels always include a healthy (or in some cases unhealthy) dose, so I’d just have to wean myself off killing characters.
What do you dislike the most about being an author?
Nell: My head is always full of bizarre stuff.
Favourite word? Nell: Wine.
