Sir Oliver Letwin lives in a beautiful long house in Dorset, and he timed my visit perfectly – just days after we’d been released from lockdown. The interview was originally linked to his planned appearance at the Dorchester Literary Festival.
I interviewed Ayisha after she did a brilliant job of editing my novel for me.
I pitched this as an idea to Dorset Magazine and was delighted that Helen liked it. It was also great to get some publicity for a local novelist.
My first ever interview was with Lord Fellowes. I’ll always be grateful to him for giving me so much time and being so charming.
