Q&A with Stella Duffy

3 Feb

Stella Duffy, writer, actorThe wonderful Stella Duffy is a performer, commentator and prolific writer. She has won Stonewall Writer of the Year twice and her book The Room of Lost Things was listed for the Orange Prize.

I gobbled up her early lesbian crime novels when they came out: Saz Martin was an adorable UK heroine, and they had great writing and appealing stories, what was there not to love? The later Parallel Lies, a gripping literary work about a glamorous actress, is one of my favourite novels. She has recently turned to historic fiction and the fascinating character of Theodora.

We are therefore over the moon that she has agreed to do a Q&A for uklesfic! We’ve got our own questions, but we would love to pass on whatever you’d like to ask too!

Comment on this post or email us at uklesfic at gmail.com and we’ll send them for Stella to answer.

    I loved Saz Martin too and I’ve noticed that the books are now available on Kindle. Are you ever tempted to write just one more adventure?

    Kudos to Stella Duffy for doing this Q&A and supporting this blog. I’m just starting Theodora. I hadn’t heard of her before and she sounds really interesting. How did you come across her? How much time does the research take writing a book like this?
