Alan Titchmarsh interview

24 Sep, 2009

The Guardian interviews Titchmarsh about why he started writing novels.

Foolhardiness. I wrote two chapters and a synopsis, sent it off to a publisher, and it sold. That’s what emboldened me to continue. I didn’t know what sort of books I would write, and it came as a shock that I was writing romantic fiction. It didn’t seem suitable I think I wanted to do an Andy McNab or Ian Rankin, or something like that. It is very unfashionable for a man to be writing romantic fiction.
