Kate Nash has revealed that she is currently writing a series of short stories, and plans to release a book in the future.

Speaking to NME.COM, Nash explained that she is working on a story for children based around a seven-foot transvestite named Roy, and that author Roald Dahl is an influence on her work.

“I’d like to release a collection of short stories,” she explained. “I’m writing one a bout a 12 year-old boy called George, who meets a seven-foot cross-dresser called Roy. It’s a concept about imagination and being whatever your dream is.

“There’s a lot of things I want to achieve creatively,” Nash went on to say. “I just like chucking things out and thinking, ‘Whatever’. I’m not scared of falling flat on my face.”
