Barren Island Books – My Eighth Interview!


For those of you familiar with that lovely long-standing stalwart of BBC Radio 4, Desert Island Discs, let me introduce to you an idea of pure majesty…

Talented fantasy writer, blogger, interviewer, mathematical genius, vegetarian, mystery, enigma wrapped in a rather lovely riddle, new mum, piano playing, fellow member of The Alliance of Worldbuilders, multi-talented book lover – the wonderful A.F.E. Smith has created somewhat of a stir.

Forget Desert Island Discs, we’re talking about books not music here…so let me introduce you all to her wonderful, magical ‘Barren Island Books’! What a stroke of genius! SUCH a clever idea! 😀

Anyway, I have been very honoured and rather humbled to be invited and interviewed by A.F.E Smith, my eighth interview and the first of 2013.

If YOU were consigned to a barren island, albeit a rocky sanctuary or a green haven in a sun-kissed and bejewelled ocean, what 5 books would YOU bring for company and to keep the hounds of tedium at bay?

Please check out my new interview and A.F.E. Smith’s wonderful blog! :

    You can’t tell, but I’m blushing. Next time someone asks me to describe myself, I’ll definitely say ‘an enigma wrapped in a rather lovely riddle’ 🙂

    Thank you for being such an entertaining and fascinating interviewee, Sophie, and I’m glad you enjoyed it!

    • Lol! Well honestly, I think your blog and the Barren Island Books idea is a total stroke of genius! Damn, I wish I’d thought of it!
      Great fun, entertaining and just a totally enjoyable experience, thank you sweetie! 😀 xx
