Fact´s About Me
Note: this page will be updated as new questions are posted
1)When did you start writing?
:I wrote a lot of poetry, which was often dark as I approached my teens. Then when I was 14 that was when I seriously sat down for the first time and wrote a book.
2)What was this book called, was it any good?
:It was called "Under The Red Moon" Hmm <grin> I wouldn´t say that it was one of my best, but it was an experience. I learned how to keep a story going from finish to end and that in itself is something which has to be continually improved as a writer. My first book was 30,000 words, now my books ususlly range between 100,000 to 120,000 words. I know this wasn´t part of your question, but as a rule I always buy long books for my own private reading pleasure, the longer the better. I like the world that another author has taken me to to last for as long as possible, and I try to give my readers a magic world they can spend several hours or even days in.
3) What does your office look like?
:Lol, I wish I had an office. Currently, I write in my spare bedroom. The room has a window without a view, and this is practical since experience has taught me that when I have a view its just a distraction and I don´t get any serious writing done. Plus point number two is that the spare bedroom is upstairs and the kitchen downstairs so I burn up a lot of calories each time I take my frequent coffee breaks and thats good for my err derrier. I´ll be posting some pictures soon of my makeshift office, the desk where I work e.c.t so watch out for those.
4)What is your favorite color?
:Red, thats why most of the writing on my web site is in red. I love Red, its just such a warm, comforting color. It always makes me think on romantic sunsets, log fires, and steamy cadellight baths or dinners.
5)Who do you find sexier Orlando Bloom or Keanu Reeves?
;My but thats a tough one, they are both gorgeous. They both have dark hair and big come to bed brown eyes, but as a girl who has a little thing for older men then I´d have to say Keanu Reeves.
6)What are some of your favorite all time movies?
:My all time favorite is The Piano directed by Jane Campion and starring Holly Hunter.
