1. The Summer of Impossible Things is quite simply one of my absolute most favourite books I have ever, EVER read! When writing did you realise just how special this book was?That is so incredibly kind and lovely! It’s really hard to call my own book special, but when I first had the idea I did get the tingles. And the more I wrote the more I fell in love with my characters.2. Luna is AWESOME, she was a scientist who didn’t believe in the things that were happening to her, yet HAD to because, well it was actually happening, she was travelling through time. If you could travel through time where would you go and why? I think I would go back to WW2 as I’m utterly fascinated by it.That’s easy, I’d really like meet Anne Boleyn. She was such an extraordinary woman, so often written about. I’d love to meet her and find out what she was really like.3. The Summer of Impossible Things was more than a love story, it is a story of bravery, sacrifice and the love Luna had for her family. Did you always know it would be that way, or was there a time when it was only going to be about boy meets girl?It started out as a story of family love, and female strength. I didn’t plan a romance at all. But then I met Michael….even so as gorgeous as he his, and as much as Luna wants him, she knows she doesn’t need him. She is the hero.4. I have so many favourite parts of this story, I just loved each and every time that Luna comes face to face with her mum, I love the friendship they had, how Luna cherished all those moments because in her real life her mum was dead, and I believe that’s how we would all act. But I think my most favourite was the ending, it was so utterly perfect. What was your favourite part and why?Thank you! It’s hard to pick a favourite bit, I love Luna and Pea, so every time they are together they wrote themselves!5. What research did you have to do for the story? Did you go over to Brooklyn, if so where would you recommend a visit?I did go to Brooklyn, and to Bay Ridge, which isn’t a tourist destination as much as Brooklyn Heights or DUMBO but it’s a fascinating place, and if you want to you can visit all the locations from Saturday Night Fever! (I did) I also read a lot of books on physics – I love the mystery of the subject and find it fascinating.6. Throughout the book when Luna visits the past she makes small changes that then change her current life, if you could go back and make a change what would you change? I like to think I could have had the power to stop Geri leaving the Spice Girls, that was an awful time in my life!Haha!! Oh gosh, what would I change? That time in 1985 when I got a Lady Di hair cut and looked like a boy for the next five years.7. Was there much that you edited out? Is there something you could tell me that missed making it into the book?There is but I can’t tell you what, that would spoil the magic!8. Luna is COOL, kind, selfless, smart and loving. Is she based on anyone, a mix of people you know or totally made up?Luna is all of us, I really mean that. I think that we all have the potential for great courage and love, and Luna is an example of how a person can be transformed by both.
