Cool interview! Not sure whether I should be encouraged or not by "Take your eyes off the prize"....Did you ever end up cannibalizing bits of the books that didn't work for other pieces?Curiously,Laura
Mmmmm... Mr. Tumnus...
Laura: Give it a go; you never know. Honestly, things started happening for me almost as soon as I stopped caring about competing; it was as if I'd thrown a switch. As for the cannibalising, I can't think of a significant part of them that I've reused, but I've kept them all, and it's not over yet. I've used the worlds they were set in here and there: e.g. 'Dedication Day' in White Time is set in the world of my big fat failed fantasy novel no. 1.kt: Just a cup of tea, remember. Nothing unwholesome.

I write fiction. My latest novel is Sea Hearts, published by Allen & Unwin in Australia—this novel is published as The Brides of Rollrock Island by David Fickling Books and Jonathan Cape in the UK, and by Knopf in the US, and as Seeherzen from Rowohlt in Germany. I've also written Tender Morsels and five short story collections: White Time, Black Juice, Red Spikes, Yellowcake and Cracklescape.
