From "One Minute With: Stella Rimington," an interview by Arifa Akbar in the Independent:
Choose a favourite author and say why you like her/himRead the complete Q & A.
One of them is Dorothy L. Sayers and the Lord Peter Wimsey books. I admire her ability to create mystery plots. I really enjoy the character of Lord Peter Wimsey who she writes slighly tongue-in-cheek.

Which fictional character most resembles you?
My own creation of Liz Carlyle. I subconsciously created a character who resembled me. She's a female MI5 officer in her thirties, as I used to be.
