    Hi Carole, have you always had an interest in espionage or, did you have to do a lot of research for Spying On Strange Men?

    Also, your locations have a minimalist, oriental feel, were you inspired at all by Eastern travels?

    I’ve always loved wigs and sunglasses and been a bit of a nosey parker. Grandfather Money gave me a walkie talkie and I used to follow Strange Men and make reports about them to my brother who had a James Bond Spy Kit.

    I dressed in character, as Emma Peel, and also dabbled in art from an early age. My first installation was a dead bluebottle on a fork which I stuffed up my sleeping dad’s nostril.

    I wrote part of Spying on Strange Men while living in Beijing though the story is set in London.

    I was in your Creative Writing class at UEA in 94/95. Very excited to read your latest. Did I really see you shopping in M&S wearing a balaclava once?

    Possibly – I do have a black mask knitted by my mum… just in case. Are you the one who had trouble getting up in the morning? It was a mystery why my class at UEA was always full when it started at 9am.

    Yep, that sounds like me. I was pretty hopeless. Both as a student and a writer!
