Anne Fine on writing.
From the Guardian:
What made you want to write when you were starting out?
I was perfectly happy as a reader but one day, I was at home with my baby and I couldn't get to the library. I was bored, so I sat down and started to write a book.
According to the mini-bio at the end, she's written six "sour comedies" for adults. Anyone know anything about 'em?
