- Catherine, why have you been so quiet so far this year?
I haven’t been quiet! OK, as far as this blog is concerned, yes, I’ve been silent, but I’ve been pretty active with my work with vulnerable adults, reviewing books and music and writing for different websites and magazines. I’ve also been typing up notes for a novel that is slowly coming together.
2. Who is rocking your world right now?
My husband of course!
I’ve just reviewed a hilarious collections of memories and short stories (What Is It With Me? by Danny C Hall), I’m addicted to the latest album by the Afro Celt Sound System, The Source. I’m also loving the BBC drama Broken, written by Jimmy McGovern which explores issues of faith and poverty in the north of England in 2017. Compelling viewing.
3. What do we have to look forward to?
I’ve started to write translations and put my own spin onto them. And of course I’d like to finish the novel I am working on. I have a friend who writes for TV and is working on an exciting project, so more on that when I have more on that. Otherwise I am continuing to write for magazines but also I am putting together some short stories and hope to get back into writing more fiction this year after having a factual year last year.
