‘Old Things Are Awesome’ (An Interview with Harmony Higgins)

Posted on Updated on

Me:    When did you start writing?
She:   When I was seven I wrote reviews of my mother’s meals and stuck them on the fridge.
Me:    How did they rate?
She:   Poorly. Especially the steak tartare.
Me:    I meant your reviews. Why historical fiction?
She:   So much of it is set in the past. Old things are awesome.
Me:    What’s the oldest thing you own?
She:   A brooch worn by Henrietta Stubbs.
Me:    Who’s she?
She:   Don’t know. She sounds ancient though.
Me:    Do you do much research?
She:   Loads. I use it as mulch on the garden.
Me:    What are your hopes and dreams?
She:   To write the perfect novel. Again. I’m joking, of course.
Me:    Of course.
She:   I’d like to become a yoga instructor.
Me:    Good luck with that.
She:   Thanks.
