I’m from: Toowoomba in SE Queensland
Three words to describe me: (My husband refused to answer this one!) A blonde cactus- Short, fair, prickly?
At home I cook: A top lasagne with meat and vegetarian halves; saves cooking separate meals for vegetarian daughter and carnivore son.
My worst habit is: Pinterest! Lol
It’s a bit daggy but I love: Old black and white movies. Casablanca is one of my all time favourites.
My first job was: Check out chick at the old Woolies walk round store. I manned the express register and was never more than two cents out.
My day job is: High school teacher
Saving for: Next trip overseas. 2014, hopefully with my daughter. We have to hit Paris again now she’s grown up enough to enjoy more than the EiffelTower!
Three things people might not know about me are: I love salt and vinegar chips over chocolate (is that heresy amongst writers?), a single malt over wine, and I studied ballet for thirteen years.
Current reading: The Tenderness of Wolves by Stef Penney, then on to The Light Between Oceans by M.L.Stedman
Favourite movie: Other than B&Ws, movies like Kate and Leopold, Hysteria, SKYFALL!!!!!
Plotter or panster: Panster, definitely, but I’m trying different methods of plotting to see what fits my style. I do like to get to know my characters in a casual way while I write the beginning. It makes the rest easier.
Why I write: I love it and I control the world within my pages. (Shades of despotic megalomania creeping in here)
Latest project: Merger in Melbourne is my current WIP (check out the board and see what I mean about my addiction! http://pinterest.com/susannebellamy/the-melbourne-merger/ ), although I’ve also got a half written ms set in Nepal with definite leanings toward romantic suspense. I’ve just got to decide which way I want to go with it.
Thank you Susanne for sharing with us today.
