Rose Tremain “In a sense, writers live their lives twice over. We live in a day-to-day life, but our minds are always turning over the possibility of the transmutation of that life into something else. If, for some reason, I couldn’t be a writer any more, my life would seem rather thin to me, sort of without substance.”
[Rose Tremain from ‘A Life in the Day’ in ‘The Sunday Times Magazine’ October 19, 2014]
My favourite Tremain book? The Colour, soon to be made into a film.

If you agree with Rose Tremain, perhaps you will agree with:-
Chris Pavone – put ordinary people into extraordinary situations
Deborah McKinlay – the lean years focussed me on what I really wanted
Michèle Forbes – I was born there, grew up there, and I felt I had to reconnect with the place
