Tell us one thing that people would be surprised to find out about you.

“I once took part in World Book Day where you had to write a letter detailing which book you’d like to give to people and why it was your favourite at that time. So I wrote about ‘The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time’. As a result, I was given over 100 copies of the book to hand out to strangers.”
