Three words to describe me: I asked my DH – he said dreamy, daggy, cuddly J
At home I cook: Sourdough bread, chocolate muffins, chocolate fudge. I’d add ‘nice healthy salads’ but I’d have to add ‘sometimes.’
My worst habit is: Procrastination. I am a champion.
It’s a bit daggy but I love: Elsie J Oxenham’s Abbey Girls books (published 1919-1960ish)
My first job was: YMCA Vacation Care assistant
My day job is: Occasional University teaching in media and communications – I’m currently teaching a unit on Science Fiction cinema, so re-watching Terminator, Blade Runner, Alien, and Serenity is legitimate work!
Saving for: A new laptop. Please. Soon. This one is almost 5 years old and I’ve worn out half the keys!
I procrastinate by: Walking the dogs. Eating. Baking. (Cleaning the bathroom is way down the list.)
Three things people might not know about me are:
- I was an extra in the film My Brilliant Career – the beginning and end of my film acting career.
- I wrote my Honours thesis on 18th century British worsted textiles. I actually know what type of fabric calamanco is and how it is made… not that it comes up in conversation very often!
- My great-great-great grandfather was a bushranger – a wild lad, with a heart of gold. He might just become a romance hero one day….
My secret skill that is no longer a secret: I can spin fine yarn on a drop spindle.
Favourite author: Just one? Ursula Le Guin, for her imagination, her craft, her world-building.
Plotter or panster: Um… organic? I start with the a character and a crime, and it kind of grows from there. Usually.
I would most like to meet: Nora Roberts. Although I’d probably gape and stammer and make a total fool of myself.
If I was stranded I would take: Chocolate.
Why I write: Because the voices in my head tell me to.
