If you could have any author –living or dead – write your biography, who would you choose?
Quite simple – Sir Terry Pratchett. Not just because his death was in the news recently, not just because I enjoy his books, not even because I admire the way he faced the prospect of Alzheimer’s. I think he would do a good job of making my rather uninteresting life interesting,
I’ve even appeared in one of his books! Not exactly true but someone with my name was a character in one of his stories,She was a nun, Sister Loquacious who left the order of “the chattering sisters” or something like that and found she could understand computers. Some very slight parallels with my own history: I attended a convent school and at one point thought I might have “a vocation” . Like some kind of illness or infirmity. Didn’t last.
At a fairly late stage I became interested in computers and now I can’t imagine life without one of these marvellous writing machines. I’m sure Sir Terry could transform this into a really interesting and funny story. And that’s what ghost writing is all about, isn’t it?
