Favourite thing to photograph? Write? Or Cook?
I love to write fiction. I write non-fiction for work and writing is always a pleasure but nothing tops creating a character you root for, laugh with and weep over.
Photograph – my kids. They’ve grown so quickly.
Cook – I like to experiment. I get bored of eating the same things. And cakes. Don’t forget the cakes.
Did you like swinging as a child? Do you still get excited when you see a swing?
Yes! We had a swing in our garden, along with a see-saw, and I remember fighting with my sister over whose turn it was. (She won, she’s bigger). One of my favourite photos is me sitting on the swing while she stands behind me. We look so harmonious but I bet it didn’t last long. My cousin had a tyre swing in her garden which I loved, although I often fell off. If I see a swing now I can’t resist.
What has surprised you about blogging?
So many things. I started a blog 18 months ago with no idea what to write, if I could write. I’ve fallen in love with the blogging community – it’s so supportive. My writing has improved week by week thanks to all the helpful feedback I’ve received. I’m in the process of researching agents and publishers, looking for a good home for my recently finished first novel and have started writing my second. I’m also self-publishing two flash fiction books next year. I don’t think I’d have got this far without you guys.
List at least five favorite desserts.
So tough. When I go out to dinner I always check out the dessert options first. Usually my lovely husband orders one he knows I’ll like so I have two!
- Eaton Mess
- Key Lime Pie
- Apple crumble and custard
- Hot chocolate fudge cake & vanilla ice cream.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m so grateful a friend is beta reading my manuscript again after I’ve added in a new subplot – I’ve got to the stage I can’t read it anymore!
I’m looking forward to some quality time with my family over Christmas.
