As an author, I am asked some questions repeatedly. Sometimes the questions are about my writing process or habits. At other times, readers and aspiring writers ask me what inspires me to write book after book. And then there’s the famous one – do you actually get paid to write? Well, you know the answer to that one – of course, professional writers earn money from their work just as other professionals in creative and other fields. Passion won’t feed our stomachs or our cats.
Today, I am going to list my favourite things because that song (from The Sound of Music) is playing in my head since last night. Here goes:
My favourite animal: Too difficult to choose. I love them ALL.
My favourite dessert: Cheesecake
My favourite cuisine: Mexican
My favourite children’s writer: Beatrix Potter
My favourite Young Adult book series: Sweet Valley High
My favourite children’s book series from my childhood: Bernstein Bears, Amelia Bedelia
My favourite genre to write: children’s and YA
My favourite place to write: Sitting next to one of my cats or in a coffee shop that doesn’t play loud music
My favourite genre to read: children’s and romance
My favourite fiction characters: Nancy Drew, Amelia Bedelia, Tofu and Bertie (44 Scotland Street Series), Bertie and Jeeves (PG Wodehouse)
The End for now 🙂
