1. If you could learn any language what would it be?
Hmmm… I have always wanted to learn Japanese, though just being able to do more than pigeon French would be better I think.
2. What is your favorite flavour of ice-cream?
None… I don’t like any ice-cream at all.
3.Who would you choose to pay you in a movie of your life and why?
Oh good heavens, hmmm…Nathan Fillion. I think he is an amazing actor and seems to be a little bit geeky, like myself.
4. Which piece of your work means the most to you?
Enter. It was the first piece I wrote and it pushed me further after receiving so many complements about it.
5. Beer, wine or spirits?
Any…. though usually beer out, and wine and home. I can drink three bottles of White Grenache and still win at Scrabble!
6. What is your favorite pastime/hobby?
Cooking. I really enjoy cooking for myself and especially other people. I love to host a dinner party, though I get really nervous that people will not enjoy my food.
7. Beach or city break?
City break – I can’t relax on a beach, too much sun, sand and distractions ;)
8. What is your biggest fear?
Dogs… I have been attacked by them, chased, growled at, bitten and generally left in fear by more dogs then I care to remember.
9. What is your favorite genre of music?
Indie/Rock – Though I do love a bit of funk too.
10. If you could only read one book for the rest of your life what would it be?
It would have to be the graphic novel (comic) Preacher by Garth Ennis & Steve Dillon. It really is the most amazing story I have ever read and the art work is flawless. I would recommend anyone to read this.
11. Who is your greatest inspiration when it comes to writing, why?
My inspiration has come from my feeling for a beautiful and wonderful woman.
