I discovered yesterday that The State of Grace will be called La Vie a Mille Decibels when it comes out in France in October - I love it. If you'd like to be a character name in my new book, have a look at the post below this one! #authorsforgrenfell

I bet someone knows the answer to this... I've got a lovely new kettle for my writing attic and despite boiling it and emptying away water countless times it still makes tea that tastes grim. Any secret tricks? (And yes I know it's baking hot outside, but I'm Scottish and we drink tea in all weathers...)
Edited to add - I've found the culprit! This little filter thing in the spout smells of the horrible taste. Have chucked it in the bin and am having some tea to celebrate!
