Ann Cleeves

Ann Cleeves's latest book (now out in the UK) is Dead Water, her fifth Shetland novel.

From her Q & A at the Independent:

Choose a favourite author and say why you admire her/him

This is impossible and changes every time I'm asked. At the moment it's Christopher Fowler. I love the wit and playfulness of his Bryant and May books. As I get older I'm drawn by old people behaving outrageously.

Which fictional character most resembles you?

Jo in 'Little Women'. Not very original. I'd guess lots of female writers would choose her.
