It's always nice to see a new generation of lyricists draw inspiration from Nick Drake:

Yes, definitely! Diana Wynne Jones is also a great author for that sort of thing. Fire and Hemlock completely invaded my brain for years!

On no, I've just looked it up and it was one! (Or at least a counterfeit one). I chose it because I liked its chunkiness - I should have known something was amiss...

Aww, what lovely Tim Burton-esque friends! Watch they don't start eating each other though like mine did (I think we had a bigger, stronger species in there and it ate all the others!)

I wish more fiction was like that. Every time a novel chooses to focus on the misery it forgets the real women through history who actually did manage to have an amazing time and achieve great things despite everything!

Tragedy does sell, but at least male characters get to have some adventures alongside their tragedy. I've read a lot of books where the female character's only storyline is tragedy. Once you start seeing it, it's hard to unsee...

I'm actually between books at the moment, so if anyone can recommend any novels that do fit the above criteria, I'd be very grateful!

Don't worry, I once thought calamari were onion rings and got a nasty surprise. And I actually LIKE calamari! It wasn't as bad as the time I mistook liver pate for chocolate mousse, though...

I'll go one step further: diet culture is a conspiracy to stop women from having interesting LIVES

Dear historical fiction, We already know that women have suffered tragedy throughout history, and still do. You don't need to tell us again. Please can we also have stories about women having fun, achieving great things, going on adventures and having great friendships? Thanks!

There are a couple of women in my office who talk about nothing but diets and it's so sad! I want to hear about their hopes, dreams and aspirations! I want to hear about their hobbies and what they think about Wimbledon! How can we even make friends with each other otherwise?

Every so often I forget that I wrote a children's book that got weirdly popular and turned into a YouTube video with 12 million views. I consider it service in the war against Baby Shark:

As a songwriter I sometimes do it without realising, but a lot of big commercial artists (or the people who actually write their songs) definitely do it deliberately. That's where the "millennial whoop" came from!

I've had this loads of times! I found out it's because a lot of musicians either accidentally or deliberately use motifs that sound like existing songs, because the familiarity is what makes people like and remember it. So the song it sounds like probably IS from the past!
