Blog Bites….Liz Fielding

Today I’m delighted to introduce, award winning romance author- Liz Fielding.

I write: short romance for Harlequin Mills and Boon.

I’m from: Wales (not the New South one, but the bit that sticks out on the west side of the United Kingdom!)

Three words to describe me: wife, grandmother, writer

At home I cook: vegetable soup, chicken curry, lemon drizzle cake

My worst habit: is leaving the top off the toothpaste. (And I squeeze from the middle.)

It’s a bit daggy but I love: hot buttered crumpets.

My first job was: clerk/typist

My day job is: writer

I procrastinate by: spending time on twitter and facebook. If it gets really bad, I have been known to tackle the ironing.

Three things people might not know about me are: I’ve worked in Africa; I once played Childie McNaught in a production of Killing Sister George; my first car was a Fiat 500

Favourite author: I don’t just have one. It’s all about mood. Barbara Samuels for lusciousness, Anna Campbell for historicals, Janet Evanovitch for laughs (to name a few)

Current reading: arc of Busted in Bollywood by Nicola Marsh

Favourite book as a child: What Katy Did Next

Favourite movie:  like the authors, it’s a mood thing, but I could watch Mama Mia a dozen times, and Ghost, Love Actually and Casablanca.

Plotter or pantster: Pantster

I would most like to meet: Hugh Jackman 🙂

When I was young I wanted to be: an actress. I should be Maggie Smith!

Why I write: My head has always been full of characters having adventures.

Latest project: Liz Fielding’s Little Book of Writing Romance

    Hi Liz! Lovely to see you here.

    Hot buttered crumpets…yum. Not daggy at all.

    Hope you have a great Christmas in Wales (the cold one), and a wonderful 2012.
