I began writing poems when I was about eight, with a heavy assist from my mother. She read me Arthur Waley’s translations and Whitman and Robinson Jeffers, who have been lifelong influences on me. My father read Keats to me, and then he read more Keats while I was lying on the sofa struggling with asthma.
When I was a kid, there were no credit cards. Instead, retailers offered layaway plans. My mom would go to a store, such as a furniture outlet, choose the sofa she wanted, and put it on layaway. That meant she put a little money down to hold the sofa, and every payday she’d pay a little toward the purchase.
When I was 21 years old, I had a job playing Santa Claus in a shopping centre in Sacramento. I was rail thin, so it’s not like I was a traditional Santa Claus even then. I had a square stomach; that was the shape of the sofa cushion that I had stuffed into my pants.
‘Doctor Who‘ began as family television: a show that kids and their parents and grandparents can all watch, maybe even together, on the sofa.

I got offered a short-term contract at Oldham, to sit on the bench. I was living on my mate‘s sofa while I was there. But that’s what you’ve got to do to get by.
If you’d told me five years ago, when I was on my sofa with no professional contract, not a lot going for me and the dream fading, that I’d be going back to the Cottage playing for the opposition in a Premier League game against Fulham, who are already down, then no, I wouldn’t have believed you.
I think people are so immersed in the anti-Scientology mindset by consuming tabloid media and stories about space aliens. It’s baffling. When I say I want to see a more positive side of the church, all I’m saying is I want to get past these headlines that talk about aliens and Tom Cruise jumping on a sofa.
When I’m interviewing on the sofa for ‘This Morning‘ it just feels like an intimate chat. Yes, there can be a producer talking through your earpiece but it all becomes second nature after a while.
I write in my pajamas on my sofa surrounded by my cats. It’s a bit isolating.
In most people’s vocabularies, design means veneer. It’s interior decorating. It’s the fabric of the curtains and the sofa. But to me, nothing could be further from the meaning of design.
A journalist also needs to be disciplined, and so do I. I am, essentially, lazy. Without discipline I’d be just a mass of gummy bears on the sofa instead of on book tour with my eighth novel.
