The name’s Faulks. Sebastian Faulks.

So, I had the very great pleasure recently of meeting literary legend Sebastian Faulks. Yes, I was nervous. Yes, I was star-struck. Yes, I asked him if he’d read Fifty Shades of Grey (no,he hasn’t!)

Sometimes, it’s hard to grasp the enormity of an author’s influence and ‘celebrity’ status, especially when you meet them face-to-face and they turn out to be thoroughly decent and very down-to-earth chaps – like Faulks. It’s not until you then take a trip to London and see huge posters all over the underground stationsĀ for the novel you’ve just interviewed someone about, that you fully appreciate how lucky you were to talk to the author in person.

Faulks’ new novel A Possible Life is getting rave reviews by the critics. I asked him all about the novel and about his incredible career as an author. The full interview is available to read over at writing.ie where there is also an opportunity to win a copy of A Possible Life.
