In my interview published today on The Displaced Nation, author Harriet Springbett talks about being an English writer living in France:
‘When I go back to England and see bookshops stuffed with books, or blogs featuring new books every day, I feel intimidated. Writing stories suddenly seems rather pointless and I wonder what I can possibly add to the overloaded bookshelves. Then I come home to France and it feels rare and right once more. France is my cocoon. If I lived in England, I’m not sure I’d be a writer.’
Harriet’s Tree Magic is published by Impress Books. She is currently writing a story set in the Pyrenees.
