Good soldiers never pass up a chance to eat or sleep. They never know how much they’ll be called on to do before the next chance.
From fried witchetty grubs to gold-plated turnips, when you’re a writer you never know what’s going to appear on your plate next. It keeps a woman alert, it does.
The expansion and sophistication of transnational crime represents one of the most dangerous threats we confront in the next millennium.
I think it’s keeping a surprise element, so that the audience never gets ahead of you. I like to pull the rug out from audiences, I don’t like for them to think they know what’s happening next.

I don’t feel like I’m self-conscious about what’s next. I don’t care. I know what it’s like to be ignored, and I know what it’s like not to be.
I’ve always found too that somewhere in whatever you’ve just written lies the seed of what you’re going to write next.

I get a chance to see new bands and new music. I’ve seen a lot of amazing local bands, bands that I think ‘have what it takes’, that they could become the next big thing. More often than not it doesn’t happen.
First, I was an idealist (that was early – fools are born, not made, you know); next I was a realist; now I am a pessimist, and, by Jove! if things get much worse I’ll become a humorist.
