What is your favourite novel/music/artist/film and why?
Shanghai Girls is my favourite book – I love it when a book makes you feel every breath and emotion of the characters. This book took me there. My favourite song is “Get into the Groove” by Madonna – the intro beats make me so nostalgic and feel good. My favourite artist, I have two, my daughters. Their drawings always make me smile. My favourite film is Pretty Woman. I love the soundtrack and the friendship and fairy-tale of it all. I also wish I had Julia Roberts’ legs!

Sailing a Hobycat with my Dad in Sardinia when I was eight. Lying on the canvas and watching the crystal clear water rush past and the wind and sun on my face.
