Today I am joined by one of my favourite authors, Della Galton.

The Fun Five:

1. What part of the world are you from?

Bournemouth, born and bred, like my mother 🙂

2.  What did you want to be when you grew up?

A vet!  Not sure what happened!

3.  List three words to describe yourself.

Tall, over sensitive, workaholic, tee hee.

4.  Who would play you in a film about your life?

Someone gorgeously attractive and a lot younger – preferably with real long hair and not hair extensions!

5.  Do you have any unique talents or hobbies?

I can click my mouth and make it sound like a galloping horse.  My cousin, Nicola, taught me when we were about eight!

The Sensible Six:

1.  You write short stories, novels and non-fiction – not to mention your agony aunt page, critique service, blog, Daily Della anthologies, workshops and public speaking (phew!), do you have a favourite?

It’s a close toss up between short stories and novels.  I love both, the stories for their brevity and the novels for the opposite reason, you can really get your teeth into a good novel.

2.  Give us the title of your latest book and a brief tagline.

It’s called The Morning After The Life Before – and it’s about a scatty lovely girl who used to drink a teeny bit too much and is trying not to do it again.

3.  I am so excited about SJ’s return.  Did you plan to write a sequel?

Not when I wrote Ice and a Slice.  I thought it was a standalone.  But I got nagged a lot and I fancied writing more about SJ – I love her.  And in the end I couldn’t resist it.

4.  How much research is involved when writing about sensitive topics such as alcoholism?

Loads.  I do all my research by asking people who know.  I speak to them at length and in depth.  I feel very privileged that they trust me.

5.  What can we expect from you in the future?

Well, actually I quite fancy writing a third novel about SJ.  I have the first page in my head.

6.  How can we contact you or find out more about your books?

I am on Facebook and Twitter most days.  I have a website and a blog.

You can get your copy of The Morning After The Life Before here.

Also available: Ice and a Slice.

To celebrate its two year birthday, Ice and a Slice, book one in the Ice series is FREE for kindle today until Sunday.
