I can’t think of a single one of my plays that does not represent a coincidence between an external and an internal event.

I believe in me, in my view of the world. I believe in my responsibility for my own destiny, guilt for my own sins, merit for my own good deeds, determination of my own life. I don’t believe in miracles, I believe in hard work.
Philippa Gregory
Well I’m not a storyteller, as far as telling stories which relate to experiences in my own life. That’s not what I do. I write songs which have a narrative and attempt to make sense and tell a story – sure! But whenever I hear the word “storyteller” I think of a children’s musician.
