Kate Mosse

The novelist and founder-director of the Women’s Prize for Fiction talks about finding inspiration in the landscape, and how women were written out of history

Landscape is the most important character in my novels. When I was a child, I would walk with my parents on the Fishbourne marshes in Sussex, and I later walked there with my own children. Both there, and in the ancient woodlands of south-west France, I feel as if I can hear the echoes of all the people who’ve walked those paths before me and those who will tread in the same footsteps long after I’m gone. For me, the truth of our shared past is held within the land, the skyscape and the mountains. It links us emotionally to the people of 19th-century Sussex, or 16th-century Carcassonne.
