How do you channel the strange, living quality of some real-life places into fictional settings? How do you go about turning the setting almost into a character in its own right? I saw you visited the part of Ireland I'm from recently; maybe it's because I'm biased, but I've always thought there was some bleakly ancient quality to Donegal and I wondered how you recreate that sort of tangible personality which some places have in your fictional settings - ie the island in Scorpio Races? TY!!
