Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Why stay between the lines?

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. I have a lot of fears, and my greatest one is far far too scary for me to write about. It involves...nope, Sorry!

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. Lateness. I'm the kind of person that's always early to everything. I spend a lot of time hanging around in in the cold being too early for trains/meetings/friends/parties etc. That's one of the reasons I find lateness so irritating. When you're normally half an hour early, and everyone else is half an hour late it means a whole hour of waiting. Grrrr.

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. I'd love to be able to sing, but it's never going to happen.

Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. Kindness, politeness, and punctuality
