The book that changed my life is Morvern Callar by Alan Warner. It changed me because that was the book that made me want to write my own. It blew me away at the same time as it made me think, “You know what, I might just be able to do something like that…” The character was so real, so alive, so flawed, so feisty, so human, I completely identified with her. She told me to write my own book. So I did. I blame Morvern.
