Ellie Midwood Interviewed by Hannah Howe What do you appreciate the most in your friends? – Our discussions about history and politics that last for hours; that we challenge each other and help each other broaden our horizons; that they’re incredibly sweet, honest people; that we always have each other’s back; and that they don’t get mad if we don’t speak for weeks when I’m on my writing spree What is your main fault? – Arrogance, I’d say. Every Leo’s fault, I have to note in my defense What is your favourite pastime? – It’s simple: reading, writing, doing my research and yoga. What is your idea of happiness? – In a physical sense – a remote cabin somewhere in the Alps with no people around where I can write my novels while enjoying the nature. In a more vague sense – if all people would stop fighting for their ideas and live in peace without trying to impose their laws/ideas/policies etc on everyone else. Simple like that, just living and minding their own business and contributing to the society in which everyone can coexist peacefully. That would be my ultimate idea of happiness.

Based on the Proust Questionnaire, Hannah Howe interviews Ellie Midwood. Ellie is an award-winning, bestselling historical novelist. Her books have been recognized by the New Apple Awards and Readers’ Favourite Awards.

If not yourself, who would you be? – Honestly, I wouldn’t want to be anyone else. I’m perfectly happy with my life/career choice/ time that I live in etc. Maybe I could remain myself but travel back to the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s though? That would be amazing, because I’ve always been fascinated with that period of time.

What are your favourite qualities in a man? – I like the so-called type A men: driven, hardworking, always trying to improve themselves; who are passionate about what they do; who can be both sensitive and yet firm and who of course will treat their girlfriend/spouse as an equal partner. What are your favourite qualities in a woman? – Same as in a man, actually, haha I like women who are strong, independent and can stand for themselves. - 22 -
