Despite our necessary contribution to the cultural life of this country, many artists continue to struggle economically. While we are (in a way) privileged to be able to make art and contribute to public discourse, artists do need to be protected from exploitation.

…I am such a strong advocate of supporting writers to connect to their own voice. It’s very different from emulating other people’s work. The significance of a writer’s own voice is an important thing to preserve…It is not only worth nurturing and supporting, it is worth protecting.

I can’t imagine not being involved in either writing or art. When I am not creating something, I am thinking about what I should create. I am 70 now and think I am just starting to understand what I am trying to do, I hope I work it out soon!

I like telling stories, I like creating people and worlds and situations that people enjoy reading…It always seemed such a magical thing to do – to tell stories that wormed their way into people’s hearts and brains. What better way to spend your life!
