Do you think the same as the main character of you story, that writing is stripping off?
Yes, in a way you can understand it as stripping off but it’s a kind of nudity that you can choose in advance – you can show more or less. Writing is a kind of internal striptease.

Is your sense of humour as good as Miranda’s?
Humour is an escape valve, a way of understanding the world and understanding yourself. It saves us from becoming sad,  arrogant and ignorant.

In your first novel The Angel’s Finger, there was more sex than love; in Mirada is there more love than sex. Are you becoming more romantic with age?
Although I try to hide it I have always been romantic. I wanted to write a love story that wasn’t naff. In the next one I want to search a little bit deeper into the relations of couples and how love is often not enough. After the final kiss and The End, what the hell happens?
