I’m feeling very jealous of my characters today, who are getting to hang out at Cambodia’s glorious Angkor Temples. It’s bloody cold in the UK and I’m wishing myself back! It can be a challenge, sometimes, taking your mind somewhere far away from where your body can’t be anywhere but rooted in reality, but it’s part of the adventure too. For me, writing is as much about discovering the world as reading is. My favourite author for capturing a magical sense of place and whisking me away is Amitav Ghosh – he’s the master. Who do you read to be transported elsewhere?
The stunning temples of Angkor, Cambodia.
