1.Have you got a message for your readers?

I have imagined meetings between extraordinary men and women who could not have met because they lived in different times and civilisations. I would hope that reading of these encounters would be fun and spur the imagination of readers. The book is playful and I hope to develop a film based on it. 

2.What can we expect from you in the future?

I have been commissioned to write a book on the psychology of vampires. There are, would you believe, 15000 citizens of Atlanta in the US who identify themselves as vampires.

I am also producing a feature film called I Love London which looks at life in the Big Smoke today and a film of a double act by Maureen Lipmann and the poet/publisher Jeremy Robson. My film on Ted Hughes, Dreamtime, is available for libraries.

If Queen Victoria had met Coco Chanel what would they have said? This book imagines a number of meetings between some iconic characters; John F Kennedy takes Grace Kelly to dinner, P.G Wodehouse and Samuel Beckett discuss cricket, Casanova discusses seduction with Marilyn Monroe.
