Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want? My blog isn’t all that original. When I write it is either for a word prompt, or sometimes a book review.

Do you recover well from setbacks to your plans?
I brush myself down, and start again. Although there are times when you have to take some breathing space. Most of my plans never go right, but giving up isn’t what I can do.

How did you meet your other half?

On a blind date. My mum’s friend, at a kitchen where she worked, asked if I wanted to go to the pub. I had been let down before, and wasn’t going there for any other reason than a night out. Three months later we were engaged.

What was your very first paid job/employment?

I was a typist, earning thirty pounds a week. I got sacked after a month because I was making too many errors.

What Do You Prefer: Fruits or Vegetables?


How open to new experiences and adventures are you?

I like new adventures, but only if I have a secure mind of where it is going to go.

Are you afraid or confident to speak your mind?

I tend to be afraid, in person, probably because I was bullied as a child. I don’t like confrontations of any kind.

Does writing energize or exhaust you?

It depends on the day, sometimes I come away from the page, thinking I have written something brilliant. Other days I look at what I have written and think why did I write that?

What do you think the best pizza topping is?

My favourite topping is ham and pineapple.

I am a fifty something mother of two grown up children, and one beautiful grandchild. I have been married for nearly thirty-four years. My first book was published ten years ago. I wrote my book Sticks and Stones because of my experience of being bullied at school.
