Laura Denfer: 1. (prison)
My books are modern cloak-and-dagger adventures, really. Although, considering ongoing sensitive events, setting them up in North Korea was probably not such a good idea. Still, as a potter, I favour Korean ceramics above all. So I write about a French-Korean heroine who sets out with the idea to save her country from becoming a major battlefield. Things go wrong, and she is imprisoned for espionage. Unable to confess to her true actions, she keeps quiet and survives hell until, at the end of the first chapter, she’s rescued by British marines. They still do sail the world, don’t they? Throughout the book the pace is fast, with many twists and turns. I write about places I’ve visited and characters I would have liked to meet (though not the villains), with events that tend to blow up in one’s face due to accidental twists of words or a mere hesitation. To my own surprise, I am on my fourth book already, with the hard core of the main characters still with me, and I’m having fun daily. Hope you will too.
