Transworld Books called out to readers and fans of Andy McNab on twitter to send in some questions for the SAS hero to answer. Andy McNab is currently touring the UK to promote his new book Dead Centre, published 15th September in hardback. Andy took time out between events to answer your questions.

1. Where do you do most of your writing?
Wherever I can get it done. Planes and trains are best, peace and quiet!

2. When was the last time you were in a war zone?
March this year, in Mogadishu.

3. Can we hope for another War Torn book?
Yes definitely, hopefully next year!

4. Who is the man on the covers of your books?!
The original one was George Clooney’s body double!

5. Why did you choose “Andy McNab” as your pseudonym?
It was short and sharp and there was symmetry on the two words. And it looks good on the covers! It was only for one book originally!

6. Where, apart from Iraq, was the coldest, wettest and hungriest you have been?
Norway on the yearly NATO northern flank exercises.

7. Why did you choose not to call your 2nd non-fiction book simply “The Regiment” instead of “Immediate Action”?
I wish I had now, good idea!

8. Nick Stone isn’t a spring chicken, will there be a point that he’s just too old for his game or will he be a kick arse pensioner?
He will be just like Mick jagger, keep on going forever!

9. Do you still genuinely enjoy watching Bollywood films?
Yes! Can’t get enough of them!!

10. Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?
Just start writing stuff and ask your mates or girlfriend to read it and honestly give feedback? Once you’ve done that you need an agent to get it to the right publishers as they do not want unsolicited manuscripts. If that doesn’t work there are many online sites where you can publish yourself.
