Over the weekend Sarah Waters was made an OBE for services to literature in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.

On the honour Sarah said: ‘Writing is, by its nature, a very solitary pursuit: you spend most of your time as an author hidden away. So to receive this kind of very public honour is a huge thrill. I'm absolutely delighted, and a little bit dazed.’
