Author Interview with Anita Cassidy


5 Questions to get to know you better…

Perhaps most important: Tea or Coffee? or a cheeky hot chocolate…

Coffee before 11am. Green tea until 5pm then a lavender tea at 9pm… I love to drink water all day and have been accused of possible OCD-ishness by having special mugs to use for the beginning and end of the day! Zippy in the morning and Wonder Woman in the evening…

Of all the characters you have created – who is your favourite?

They are all part of me so I love all of them in different ways but I think my favourite is David as he is me when I am trying my hardest to be better…

Do you have a particular place where you write? Can you share a picture?

I have a Victorian writing desk in the corner of my bedroom. I also use a wooden library chair which is probably terrible for my posture but I love it!

Where do you find your inspiration and ideas?

I tend to write about what I am most interested in. When I started Appetite it was what and how we eat that fascinated me the most as well as how we navigate long term relationships and desire.

What are you working on currently, and when can we expect to read it?

I am currently writing the first of a pair of books. They are thematically and stylistically similar to Appetite. The first one is called Thirst. It is about what happens to a family when a late 20-something woman decides to run her relationships differently. It is also about school, families, forgiveness after an affair and our society’s relationship with drinking.
