Questions & Answers

Where did your inspiration come from for the novel?

Tilly:

It came from a lot of different places.  The book is partly set in and around Burford in the Cotswolds, where I spent idyllic summers and Christmases as a child.  Other parts are set in LA and London, the two cities where I have spent most of my adult life.  My sister recently married a rock band manager from New York, so that’s probably what gave me the idea to use the music industry as a backdrop for Friends & Rivals.
