Q&A on writing and myself

1. What did you want to be when you grew up?
 I always wanted to be an artist but I also wanted to work with dolphins. I soon forgot the latter and concentrated on the art side of things but once I got to college I found I didn't like the course. I moved on to a graphic design course but didn't like that either and that was as far as I got with my childhood ambition :)

2. What was your favorite subject at school?
As mentioned above, Art was my favorite subject with English as my second favorite. I was also quite partial to History and Spanish but if you asked me about either of these subjects now I wouldn't be able to tell you a thing :)

3. What is your favorite food?
I love all things pasta, I have even been known to have plain pasta smothered in ketchup! Some will say 'that is disgusting' but have you ever tried it? As for my favorite meal it would have to be Lasagne.

4. What is your best quality?
Hmm well I really like to help people whenever possible, I'm also a good listener or a shoulder to cry on.

5.What is your worst quality?
Kind of conflicting with the above question I tend to take a lot on, other peoples problems or assisting them when I should be dealing with my own commitments. I have been told this is my worst quality.

6. When did you first realize you wanted to be an author?
I used to write a lot of stories in my younger years but it was merely a hobby then, my passion being an artist at the top of my agenda. It was only recently in the last few years that I took it up again and began seriously considering becoming an author.

7. What does your family think of your writing?
Mostly they are supportive although sometimes probably feeling a bit neglected when I sit there for hours completely oblivious to my surroundings.

8. What is your work schedule like when you are writing?
I don't really have a schedule, I write when I get the chance although when it comes to editing that does become priority. I do try to write a little each day especially since I have quite a few projects I am working on at the moment.

9. What do you like to do when you're not writing?
Um, thinking up plots and scenes lol. Generally writing or keeping up with my websites and blogs tend to take up most of my time even when I don't intend them too. If I get the chance between running a home and dealing with children then I will sit down and read a book.

10. Where and when do you write?
I write whenever I get the chance as for where, I will sometimes take a notebook with me in the mornings when taking my children to school. Other than that it is usually in the lounge while sitting on the sofa or at the kitchen table.

11. What do you like most about being a writer?
I love creating my own little world, I especially love creating my characters and giving them a personality and their own roles in the world I have made for them. The best part is when it all comes together and you have a finished story of your own making, that is such an accomplishment :)

12. Would you like to hear from your readers and accept comments good or bad?
I would love to hear from my readers whether they enjoyed it or not , any feedback is helpful for my future projects. I actually prefer the personal approach, discussing the good or bad points of my book or even explaining something that was not understood is definitely an approach I would use. I am always available to readers or otherwise who wish to talk to me, and can be contacted on any of my sites :)
