The author



Award-winning documentar­y filmmaker and author Hannah writes about trying to escape her high-profile name on page 71. Her second novel The House of Trelawney, which looks at a crumbling English dynasty amid the 2OO8 financial crash, is out 11 February. WHAT INSPIRES YOU ON A BAD WRITING DAY? ‘Visiting a museum. I am liberated by silence.’ ARE THERE ANY PHRASES YOU AVOID? ‘I loathe the word “nestling”. Beautiful women are always nestling in their lovers’ arms. The only thing that should nestle is a mouse.’
