The lovely Elise Dumpleton at The Nerd Daily had some burning questions for me about Bridge and writing. We talk writing as a career, how I came about the concept for my latest novel and of course what I recommend reading at the moment. Asked to describe Bridge in five words: grieving daughter discovers reality-tripping artefact.

“It’s about the stories we tell, which stories become dominant cultural narratives, which ones we have to fight with all our guts and heart.”

Via The Nerd Daily:

ED: Where did the inspiration for Bridge come from?

LB: I’m interested in choices, the roads untravelled, the idea of having a do-over or being able to follow a different track to a whole other kind of life – and what if you could actually do that, explore your other lives, otherselves? What if it was better over there?
