Q&A: THE FIVE W’S Of Daisy Goodwin

 Today I’d like to introduce to you, Daisy Goodwin. I will be reviewing Daisy’s newest book The American Heiress on Thursday with your chance to win a copy! Thank-you so much for joining on here at A Novel Review, Daisy! Now let’s get to know:

THE FIVE W’S  Of Daisy Goodwin 

WHO? I find it very hard to describe myself as I do lots of things but my most important role is keeping up with my two gorgeous daughters who are 20 and 10 and both light years ahead of me. I also have a husband and three dogs. I make tv programmed by day and I am a lot shyer than people think. 

WHAT? What do you enjoy doing other than writing in your spare time? I love reading best. Books raised me as a child and some books are still my best friends. I love cooking, and crafty things like quilting and knitting. I will watch any movie with Bette Davis in it. 

WHEN? When did you know you wanted to be a writer? I still don't call myself a writer even though I have had two books published. I have wanted to write a novel since I was a little girl but never quite had the nerve until I was in my forties. So it is never too late to achieve your childhood dreams. 

WHERE? Where do you write? I write wherever it's quiet on my laptop. My top tip is to buy a pair of noise cancelling headphones. Means you can work anywhere. 

WHY? Why do you write?  My day job is in tv so the great joy of writing is that it is completely solitary. Just me and my imagination. It always surprises me what will come to my mind when I sit down and write. My subconscious just seems to take over. I will read stuff back the next day and have no memory of having written it. Alchemy. 
I want to thank Daisy for joining us here at A Novel Review! Make sure to come back on Friday to see what I thought of The American Heiress and your chance to win a copy!!!
