Tell me a little about yourself (where you live, who you are, what you look like, what you hope to achieve, etc.)
I live in a village called Steeple Martin, in Kent, England. There is a map of the village on Lesley Cookman’s website and in all her books. I am fairly short, about five feet three inches – or possibly two inches if I’ve shrunk. I’m – slightly – er – overweight and my hair is a sort of dark rusty red and very curly. I look a bit like a rusty bottle brush. Achievements? Well, I’d quite like a quiet life. We seem to keep having murders thrust upon us.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
I should say painting, but I only do that for money these days. Just pin money, really, and I don’t enjoy it as I used to. Also, what was my job as an actress turned into a hobby, and has now turned into business again, as my partner Ben and I, with his cousin Peter, run our theatre – the Oast Theatre.
What is your favorite color and why?
Red, I think.
What is your favorite food? Why is it your favorite?
I like spicy food, and I think my favourite is Mexican Pollo Con verde, cooked by my friend Harry.
What would you say is your biggest quirk?
What or who means the most to you in your life? What, if anything, would you do to keep him/her/it in your life?
My children, my partner Ben, my cat Sidney, my best friend Fran, Peter and Harry... I suppose I’d do just about anything I could to keep them with me.
What one thing would you like readers to know about you that may not be spelled out in the book in which you inhabit?
After 16 books and two novellas, there’s very little my readers don’t know about me or my past!
If you could tell your writer (creator) anything about yourself that might turn the direction of the plot, what would it be?
Tell that woman anything? As if she’d listen!
