Natalie Fendalton is a writer from Wellington, New Zealand. Stopover is her first book. She doesn't spend nearly as much time on airplanes as she would like ;)
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My ancient, deaf cat who panics if I sleep past 6.30am, so she stands on my pillow and yowls until I can't ignore her anymore!
Also, if I never got out of bed, I'd miss the opportunities life might fling my way, so I'd better be upright and decently groomed, right?
Who are your favorite authors?
Oh, wow: I have hundreds! But if you held a gun to my head (please don't), I'd have to say: Ben Aaronovitch, Victoria Clayton, Janet Evanovich, Ben Elton, Mark Frost, C.S. Harris, L.M. Montgomery, Sophia McDougall, Katherine Neville, Deanna Raybourn and J.K. Rowling.
