My Favourite Things by Sue Moorcroft


Savoury would be a juicy fillet steak, with chips (the kind with no calories). Sweet is easy. CHOCOLATE, the darker the better. Nutty chocolate is an especial weakness.

I love champagne. I keep it as a treat and enjoy it so cold and dry it makes my ears hurt. Champagne’s association with celebrations is a lovely secondary benefit, reminding me of publication days, new contracts and getting to #1 on Amazon last Christmas.

Brassed Off. I don’t know if anybody else remembers this cult classic about a brass band but the humour and poignancy always got to me. Ewan McGregor and Pete Postlethwaite had fantastic roles.

A Town Like Alice by Nevil Shute. The first book I read that was intended for adults. I watched the film with Dad and he said he had the book in his bookcase. I was hooked on the work of Nevil Shute for life.

I’ve chosen Linda Howard from a thousand possibilities more-or-less because she came to my mind first.

Sam from Suzanne Brockmann’s Gone Too Far. He’s a fantastic hero, a bad-boy in many ways but a force for good. OK, and, you got me, he’s a navy SEAL.

It was so hard to choose but I’ve gone for Girls & Boys by Good Charlotte because I think the lyrics are funny, clever and oh-too-true, all about girls liking cars and money and boys laughing at girls when they’re not funny.

Holiday destination

Malta. I was brought up there for several years and think of it as my second home.


Dog. I don’t have one of my own now but I sometimes ‘borrow’ Puppy-in-law, who belongs to my son and his girlfriend.

Place to write.
My study, although I can manage it travelling, too. And often do, because I love to travel.

Summer. I’m a heat freak and don’t think I’ve ever complained about sunshine.

A big family meal between Christmas and New Year, which I frequently host. I’m extremely lucky with my extended family as we like each other and like to spend time together.

Inspirational quote
‘The harder I work, the luckier I get.’ Variations have been attributed to various people but it’s one of my guiding principles.

Thing in the whole world
Watching a great Formula 1 race, in silence, with cold white wine and a bar of chocolate.

Thank you so much for joining us today Sue and for sharing your favourite things, Wishing you lots of luck for the new book.
