What is your most treasured possession?
My family. I know they’re not my possession as such, but they’re definitely the most treasured thing in my life.

When is the last time you laughed?
I’m always laughing! I laugh at everything and everyone.

What is your guilty pleasure?
Fat chips! I just love crinkly fat chips!

What would you say is your worst habit?
I sing all the time – when I’m working, when I’m walking round the house, when I’m out and about. I just love to sing.

What is your Desert Island Book?
It’s got to be Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. We didn’t really have very much when I was growing up, and when my teacher in school told us about the story, I felt like I was a female Oliver Twist so could really relate to it.

What can’t you live without?
I couldn't live without my family – that would be utterly unthinkable.

What do you do when you have time to yourself?
I write!

Josephine Cox was born in Blackburn, one of ten children. At the age of sixteen, Josephine met and married her husband Ken, and had two sons. When the boys started school, she decided to go to college and eventually gained a place at university but was unable to take this up as it would have meant living away from home. Instead, she went into teaching – and started to write her first full-length novel. She won the ‘Superwoman of Great Britain’ Award, for which her family had secretly entered her, at the same time as her novel was accepted for publication. She is now a No.1 bestselling author with over 40 books to her name.
