Interview with Penelope Wallace

Where do you get your inspiration from?
Speculation about a world without gender prejudice, miscellaneous ideas… and a man who walked into my head.
How long have you been writing?
I have been writing on and off since I was six, when I wrote a shortened version of “The Jungle Book”.
Are you an animal lover?
I will take the Fifth Amendment on this one.
Do you have other creative outlets besides writing?
I answer questions stupidly and recite poetry.
What is your favourite film?
I usually say “Some Like It Hot”.
Where did you grow up?
St Andrews, Scotland.
Where did you go to university?
Finally leaving St Andrews… Oxford and Aberdeen.
What is your favourite sport?
“Sport” is an interesting concept. I’ve never come to grips with it as a participant, but I like watching tennis.
Who is your favourite author?
People choose just one?
What is the last book you read?
“Magnum Bonum” by Charlotte M Yonge, and “The Gospel of Dot” by Humphrey Clucas.
So your friends and family are supportive?
They are, on the whole.
