Jan Brigden’s questions answered by Morton Gray:-

What are the best and worst gifts you’ve ever received?

Best would be my perfume atomiser which I take everywhere.

Worst a dreadful unicorn keyring, that my husband said looked better on the picture 😱

Who is the celebrity you’d most like to share a 100 mile taxi ride with and why?

I am quite taken with Stephen Mangan at the moment. He is starring in the drama The Split, but also co-hosts Portrait Artist of the Year, which I love. He seems a very interesting character, so I’m sure the journey would speed by as we talked about art.

If you could interview any author past or present, who would it be and why?

It would have to be Jane Austen, because it was a love of her books that made me want to be a writer in the first place.

What’s the most nerve-racking thing you’ve ever done in your life?

I’m not very fond of water, so probably canoeing up a river estuary in Wales when I was on a team building course with work.

What’s your idea of the perfect holiday?

Walking on a beach and in the countryside with my husband, usually in the UK.

What do you find best helps you to relax, de-stress and re-focus? 

A lovely bubble bath.

Which song triggers happy memories for you and why?

I can’t think of one particular one, but I am always singing seventies and eighties hits and songs from the shows in the shower. I always tell my husband he should be worried about me if I don’t sing.

Who is the fictional hero you’d most like to spring to life before your eyes?

Sue Moorcroft‘s Ratty from her novel Starting Over.

Which city in the world would you most like to visit?

New York!

What’s your favourite food treat/indulgence (however big or small) ?

Anything with chocolate! I’m a bit of a chocoholic.

Which three words best describe you?

Shy, persistent, loyal.
