Wendy very much enjoyed Anglea's book 'The Double Life of Cora Parry' as it was set in the Victoria period, and wanted to know more about why she shows to write in this time.
Wendy: What was your inspiration for writing a book set in Victorian England?
Anglea: When I started writing about Cora I knew I wanted to explore ideas of identity and to play out moral choices. Because of this I wanted her to be able to develop a double life and for that deception to go unnoticed. When I looked for a setting that would give her opportunity and concealment, the overcrowded, crime-ridden back streets of Victorian London seemed perfect.
Wendy: Fletch is such a complex character - why did you write her out so early in the story.
