Her 2016 novel, The Natural Way of Things, won the Stella Prize, the Indie Book of the Year and Novel of the Year, was joint winner of the Prime Minister's Literary Award for Fiction, and has been published throughout Europe, the UK and North America.

How would you describe your creative process?
'Half blind groping in the dark, half ruthless tenacity and discipline. I believe creativity is mysterious and beautiful, talent is something you can develop with attention and willpower, and discipline comes with practice.'
