MONDAY 24th DECEMBER 2012

Happy Christmas Eve!

I have been chosen by the amazing Andrea Buginsky over on Andi’s Realm to receive the fabulous Liebster Award! So thank you very much Andrea!

This is an award bloggers give to introduce blogs you might not have found already that we think are completely awesome. Here’s how it works. You post the picture of the award to your blog:

You give 11 random facts about yourself and answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger who nominated you. Then you think up 11 new questions and nominate 11 new blogs – and you can’t nominate the blogger who nominated you.

Here are 11 random facts you may not know about me:

Newsround1) I was once a Press Packer with BBC’s Newsround

2) As a Press Packer, I was a runner up in a competition where I had to audition in the Blue Peter Garden for a News Feature – Twice

3) I love Jazz music. I listen to it when I write (as I am now)

4) I love mice pies and have been through about six boxes since November (gulp!)

5) When I was little I had an imaginary friend (some say it may have been a ghost) called Jenny, with black hair in pigtails

6) I became an Auntie for the first time this year wohoo and I love my lil nephew to pieces

7) I LOVE pizza – especially Asda create your own pizzaPizza

8) I have two tattoos

9) I once went quad biking

10) I once went white water rafting

11) Re the above two – done once – don’t really fancy doing again

Andrea asked me the following questions

The Hunger Games1) What is your favorite book?

The Hunger Games. It was the first book in a long time which I could not put down. The idea and concept behind really fascinated me, yet actually frightened me at the same time. The book has a lot of elements of your own fears inside and what it would truly feel like to fight for survival.

 2) What kind of books did you originally want to write?

I always knew I wanted to write a Chick-Lit novel of some sort but my burning passion since I was a child has been to write adventure stories – born from my reading of The Famous Five, The Secret Seven and Nancy Drew. The Ruby of Egypt has been my starting block in that area which I intend to vastly expand throughout my writing career

 3) Are you a plotter or a pantser?

Total plotter. I am the Queen of lists and plans in my everyday life to the point of OCD therefore it was bound to trickle through into my writing.
 4) Do you listen to music while you write?

As mentioned in my fact list, I certainly do. I listen to Jazz music which I find comforting, soothing and relaxing – putting me in the right frame of mind to escape and write.
 5) If yes, what kind?

I either listen to Jazz FM through the Sky Radio Channels or Jazz 24 online

6) What is your favorite comfort food?

Pizza!

 7) Who is your favorite author?Marian Keyes

It would have to be Marian Keyes. She has the right balance of humour in her novels as she tackles some pretty serious and sensitive issues in her novels, but they are dealt with sensitively and with the right about of light-heartedness that they make for great reads. Genuine laugh out louds and sob your heart out books all in one.
 8) What is your favorite movie?

Ohh I’m not really much of a movie buff, I loved Lord of The Rings and the Hobbit, but then I love Christmas themed films like The Holiday, Elf, Love Actually. Can’t pick a favourite.
famous-five-01-19919) What was your favorite book as a child?

The Famous Five. I had to pick this particular book cover image as this is the one that I had and  it brings back so many memories. I loved the adventures that they got up to.
10) What is your favorite holiday?

In terms of holiday period – definitely Christmas. In going abroad, I have loved every holiday but will most definitely be returning to Florida again. Loved it.

11) What is your favourite colour?

Purple

  1. Mice pies? I’ve never heard of that…please tell me this isn’t an Asian dish that includes mice. Congrats on the award!

  2. Ah, mince pies! It’s so hard to get them over here. And when we find them, they’re so expensive. Still, treats for the guys and maybe I’ll get around to making some gluten free mince pies just for me. Thanks for the nomination.

  3. Thanks so much, Gemma!
