Interview with F. D. Lee

I am delighted to announce my *first* author interview, which is with David Ellis on Toofulltowrite

In the interview, David asks me about my love of Terry Pratchett, how I deal with writer's block, and who I would cast in a movie version of The Fairy's Tale, among other things.

Please ignore the time stamps! The interview will be published on the 26th and will remain on the website :-)
