sarah dalton: 10 things readers would be surprised to know about me
1. I didn’t think I was good enough to be a writer – I thought being a writer meant writing books that would change the world or become a poetic masterpiece. I completely lost sight of the books that entertain people. Sometimes the books that we love are not the books that will be remembered in a hundred years. When I learned that I realised that I could be a writer.

2. I’m chaotic – I have to force myself to approach things systematically. I want to just start with a line or a character and write the book from there. I’ve learnt the hard way that approaching a novel is something that needs to be planned.

3. The Blemished started off on another planet – except it wasn’t really The Blemished but it did still have Mina as the main character. She was a Princess who could read people’s emotions through smell. She met a boy who she couldn’t smell and could not speak her language and they fell in love. There were many problems with it and I had to give it up!

4. I’m British – Okay, that’s probably not a surprise seeing as the book is set in Britain and I tend to talk about being British a lot. I find it hard to find many other indie British YA authors out there. If you’re there come say hello!

5. I find soaps inspiring – I love watching human nature and soaps are our human-nature outlets. They are what we think relationships are and I find that a bit fascinating. I think watching soaps has helped me with my characters.

6. I’m addicted to the internet – I’m old enough to remember when Emails were invented and to have actually been on a chat-room. I think I got addicted to the internet before it was really popular, back in the day when you had to wait 2 hours for a song to download from Napster! Yup, I’m old.

7. Leave the past alone – I get fed-up of people older than me telling me how much better the past was and how bad kids are these days. The truth is that everyone’s teenage/young adult years are the best of their life and they are always going to see that period in the golden-glow of youth. It doesn’t mean there was less crime, TV was better or we had better manners. Move on.

8. I don’t drive – people tend to comment on this a lot and I get hassle from my family but I hate driving and I won’t do it. It doesn’t mean I’m not independent, I live in the middle of a city and everything I need is in walking distance.

9. I grew up in the middle of nowhere – and it gave me cabin fever. I could never live in the countryside again. I need the hustle and bustle of a city.

10. I believe we make our own fate – I don’t believe in luck or destiny. When I was growing up I heard a lot of people say ‘it just wasn’t meant to be’. I don’t think anyone should hear this as a child. You have to go out into the world and carve out your own path. That’s the advice I would give to anyone. Make things happen.
