Which latitude are you on right now?
Sum up what you do for us in one sentence for anyone who might not know…
Journalist, author and photographer
If you could give us one hot tip for who to see at Latitude what would it be?
Do you have any pre-show rituals?
What’s your best festival story for us? The stranger the better!
Last year at Port Eliot I ate Byron cheeseburgers for every meal
Tell us a something you’ve never told an interviewer before…
I drink at least 10 cups of extra strong Tetley a day
What’s your signature cooking dish?
What book/film/record etc. changed your life and why?
Julian Barnes 'A History of the World in 10 1/2 Chapters'. The chapter 'parenthesis' made me realise that writing could be for me, not just for grown ups
Knock Knock, who’s there?
The doorbell seller
What’s the best thing about performing live?
The pattern seems to be nerves-panic-elation-self hatred
And lastly summarise Latitude in three words
Hope there're cheeseburgers
