Sophia Money-Coutts – Journalist and Author talks about being a morning person

Sophia Money-Coutts is a journalist and author who writes for The Sunday Telegraph’ and the ‘Evening Standard’. Her 3rd novel is ‘The Wish List’, about Florence who writes down her ideal man, and is then shocked when he wanders into her bookshop.

You can hear how she got the idea at an…adult party, and how her family then influenced how she wrote the story. We talk about genre, about the conventions of rom-com and whether she’s bothered about sticking to them, and when ideas tend to pop into her head. Sophia, like me, is a morning person. We chat about why that is, and if the labelling is useful at all, or pointlessly self-fulfilling.
