Chewing gum, wet wipes, and a Kindle.
Which 3 people would make up your dream dinner party?
Mary Wollstoncraft, Mary Shelley (because what things they would say to each other as mother and daughter who never met!), and the fictional Jane Eyre – hers and the two Marys principles are so different it would be fascinating to sit back and watch the conversation play out!

Stubborn, Impatient, Dreamer.
Which profession do you look at and think: “I’d love to be able to do that?”
What are you grateful for?
The opportunities I’ve been given.
What is one thing everyone should do?
Take a risk and challenge yourself – I’m afraid of heights, but I forced myself to do a tandem skydive once in Prague, and it was one of the most exhilarating things I’ve ever done!
What are you reading right now?
I have a whole load of proofs I’m trying to work through, but I’m currently reading the excellent The Square of Sevens by Laura Shepherd-Robinson, due out in June 2023.
Susan Stokes-Chapman’s Pandora
