The hardest thing about writing a novel is …

Nothing. I'd be lying if I said writing Breathing Under Water was hard for me. I loved every second of it. I craved writing. And soon I found myself blowing off social engagements just so I could find out what happened next. The only 'hard' part was leaving my characters at the end to carry on living out their lives on their own.

My favourite authors are …

Tim Winton and Brooke Davis

My favourite place to curl up with a book is ...

In bed when there's rain on my windowpane and it's blowing a gale outside. 

If I could have one wish it would be…

To breathe under water.

  • Breathing Under Water - Sophie Hardcastle

    BREATHING UNDER WATER is a lyrical and emotionally powerful novel about life, death and learning to breathe in between.
