Q: Do you take regular exercise and if so, what?

A: Not really - I walk the dog and I go swimming. I've got joint problems so I find jogging and things like that quite hard. I think when you are writing you sometimes go into hermit mode and lock yourself away and then when it's finished I'd be going swimming and making plans again.
