[Knight Errant Press] Is gender identity a theme that comes up a lot in your writing? If not, what pushed you to explore it this time around?
[Gray]: I write about gender quite often. I think how we’ve thought of gender up until recently, particularly in terms of it being a strict binary system, is changing, which makes it an interesting topic to document and explore.
[KEP] Was there a particular book, short story, poem or event in your life that inspired you to write your own?
[G]: I tend to find inspiration in day-to-day life, in the things that go wrong, overheard conversations, daydreams etc.
[KEP] What’s the most famous book you haven’t read?/play you haven’t seen?/album you haven’t listened to?/film and TV series you haven’t watched?
[G]: Oliver Twist. The Sound of Music. Game of Thrones.
[KEP] Tea or coffee?
[G]: Nettle tea.
[KEP] Early morning or late into the night?
[G]: The place where the two meet.
[KEP] Digital or analogue?
[G]: Digital watches, analogue music.
