For many years, women have been waking up to the realisation that they need to become their own heroes, because men tend to be self-indulgent cocks and a bit useless, and this is something being shown more frequently by strong female characters in popular culture, to the point where we don’t even have to think about it anymore.

Whilst working on my new novel Meredith, I’ve been trying to achieve that balance. Equality is our friend, and don’t forget it.
