The Attitude Smorgasbord: Sarah Norquoy

I first met author Lorraine Thomson a year ago at a writers’ event happening in Orkney. She had come up to encourage other writers and share tips, and we got talking at a networking event later on. I always remember her saying ‘just say yes to everything’, so when she asked me to do an interview for her website, of course, it was a big fat yes. You can read it here, and also have a look at Lorraine’s website and work. It was great fun to do and I hope to hook up with Lorraine again in the future. Cheers for the invite Lorraine, and keep saying yes.

From May to December 2015, I delved into the lives of 21 writers, finding out what made them tick, who would play them in a film of their lives and what advice they would give to their young selves. Now the Smorgasbord is back, rebooted and raring to go, with a fresh batch of writers lined up for the next seven weeks.

First up is Sarah Norquoy. I met Sarah in 2016 when I was invited to Stromness in Orkney, to give a talk at an Emergents workshop. I was working on the final draft of Boiling Point, and Sarah was experiencing extraordinary success with her blog, Norq from Ork.
