does the word "story"
mean to you?
PM: Keeping an ear out.
Holding the attention of everyone sat round you. Something plucked out
of the air. Making it look easy.
Do you have a reader in mind when you write stories?
Actually, I don’t. Probably a varied gaggle of faces I know, sitting
anything you'd like to ask someone who has read your collection,
anything at all?
PM: Do you want to hear some more?
it feel knowing that people are buying your book?
PM: That always feels incredible.
What are you working on now?
PM: I’m writing my next novel for
Headline Review… and another one for another publisher – juggling the
Gothic with one hand and science fiction with the other… and exploring
bits of stories in my journals.
