On reading

The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay.

I feel like this book was the reason I learned to read.

On inspiration

It's Thursday. It's cold. And this song is cheering me up.

On remorse

Since The Dating Detox came out five weeks ago, I’ve received some lovely emails from readers. Most of them are just a little hello with a note about what they thought about the book, some of them are long and funny dating-related diatribes, some are asking for postcards or suggesting bastard names. I reply to every single one (though one girl replied that she was impressed I replied – I promise, there is no Gem-bot, this is all me, dude). And thus we come to my story. It’s about remorse.

Sheer Luxe is the new black

I'm not posting every time I have a review, I promise - but I LOVE this one so much I had to put it here. Sheer Luxe is THE online luxury shopping mecca, and you can trust it to give only Top Gun tips. (The best of the best, obviously.) It also has a brilliant book club. And the reviewers are clearly utterly lovely women. I'd like to take them out for a drink.
