I’m always reading writer interviews and I think about how I’d answer some of these questions. So I thought I’d interview myself. Weirdo that I am!

Question: How would you describe yourself?

I’m fun loving. 40 plus (I’m not telling). I love reading, writing and day dreaming. Happily married with hundreds of borrowed children.

Question: Who’s your favourite author?

I love many authors, but my all time faves, writer’s who’s books I purchase as soon as they are out, are Diana Gabaldon, Kerry Greenwood and my new fave is Cathryn Hein.

Question: Why write?

I started mucking about with writing in my teens and have had several half hearted goes at writing a novel every ten years or so. Until we started our transport company that kept my darling husband away through the week. Then I began to consider writing in earnest. Writing has become an outlet, a companion and an obsession.

Question: You wish you’d wrote? 

Probably Diana Gabaldon’s “Outlander” series and of course, you know what I’m going to say, “Harry Potter” who wouldn’t like to have written those books.

Question: Something we don’t know about you? 

Mmm, well that’s a hard one, as you probably don’t know much about me in the first place. But, I lived on a sheep station in the Riverina when I was in my twenties and was a cook in the homestead.

Question: In one sentence tell us about your WIP? 

I’m editing Something in the Water at the moment and it’s a contemporary suspense romance set in the beautiful squalor of the Solomon Islands.

Question: Publishing? Are you? 

I dream of being published. So far though, I feel as if I’m still practising, I am unpublished. I am going to try for traditional publishing for Something in the Water, hopefully before the end of the year.

Question: What would you be doing if you weren’t writing? 

Likely, just reading and listening to audio books. My garden would probably be in a better state and I’d have a winter vegetable garden.

(see what a mess my roses are)

So, there you have it, a mini selfie-interview.

If you’d like to know anything else, feel free to ask. I can’t guarantee I’ll tell you, but I will answer <wink>
