My Favourite Things by Tony Riches, Author

Favourite Food:
I’ve had wonderful holidays on the Greek islands, so would always choose an authentic Greek restaurant. Kαλή υγεία!

Favourite Drink:
I’m a fan of real ale so enjoy the more unusual offerings with exotic names like ‘Theakston Old Peculiar’, ‘Bishop’s Finger’ and ‘Hobgoblin’.

Favourite Film:
I never tire of watching Bill Murray’s journey to self-fulfilment in ‘Groundhog Day’. It’s a great reminder that it’s never too late to learn new things and change for the better by random acts of kindness and consideration.

Favourite Book:
As a child I my favourite book was Alice in Wonderland – and although I’ve read so many amazing and memorable books since, my treasured copy still has pride of place on my bookshelf.

Favourite Author:
I have so many but I’ve recently been reading the works of medieval historical fiction author C.J. Sansom’s Shardlake series, and really admire the way he develops his characters.

Favourite Holiday destination:
I’ll never forget visiting the pyramids at Giza and actually making my way deep down inside one but I lived in Kenya as a child and my all-time favourite place is Mombasa. (I returned there a few years ago and was sadden to find how dangerous it is there now - a story that became my novel The Shell.)

Favourite Place to write:
I bought a beautiful writing desk with my first royalties and envisaged producing all my best work at it – but of course the reality is I prefer to work at my laptop, often surrounded by piles of research books.

Favourite Inspirational quote:
The smile that you send out returns to you. (Indian wisdom)
