Welcome, Pauline Barclay
How would you describe your writing style in only three words?
Pauline: Emotional. Passionate. Moving.
If you could have a relationship with one of your fictional characters who would it be and why?
Pauline: Mmmm, tough question, but for now I’ll go with Bertie Costain, he knows how to have a good time; sometimes too good!
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?
Pauline: Maybe Storm Clouds Gathering as it is set in 1965. I’d have to sit on the side lines as I’d want to interfere with their lives and try persuade them to do things differently!
Dead or alive literary dinner party: who would you invite, and what would you serve?
Pauline: I have to invite Margaret Mitchell as her book Gone with the Wind is still my all time favourite. I would also have Enid Blyton there too. I can just imagine the scene as the famous five meet Scarlet O’hara. Shudders at the thought! As for food, it would be fresh salmon with fresh vegetables.
If you had to write in a different genre which would it be and why?
Pauline: I’d love to write humour and show the funnier side of life.
What do you dislike the most about being an author?
Pauline: Feeling desperate when the words and plot don’t work together!
Favourite word? Pauline: Fabulous!
