My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Paige Toon
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Think the worst and you'll be pleasantly surprised

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. It'd be fun to be a successful actress with a killer body to go with it. But only for a while – I like my life! Actually, scrap that, I'd like to be a bird so I could fly. Yes, I know I sound like an eight-year-old, ha ha.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. I wish I hadn't invited the idiot around who let my pet budgie out of his cage when I was a teenager. Our dog Mishka caught him - with her teeth. Trixie was the coolest bird ever. He said loads of words, and would use inflections, so he'd say: 'good, good, good, NAUGHTY, BAD boy!' You could teach him to say pretty much anything. He used to climb into my dad's cereal when he wasn't looking and kick the cornflakes around. The day I got braces on my teeth, he nearly fell off my finger backwards, he was so shocked when I opened my mouth - hilarious!

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. I wouldn't have a clue! Someone with a tendency to be a little melodramatic, probably.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. My mothering (and hopefully not smothering) nature!

My family and I moved to Cambridge last summer and I love everything about it. Except, that is, the recent deluge of Sunday drivers that seem to have hit the streets. I don’t know where they came from. They weren’t here when we first moved – back then, I saw speed camera vans lying in wait around practically every corner. (Apart from the time I didn’t see one, and almost ended up with three points on my licence…Whoops.) But now I try very hard to stick to the speed limit. Unfortunately,this is impossible. Because lately, the people in front of me have been forcing me to drive... see more

I wrote this blog for International Chick-lit Month, May 2013

The book that got me hooked on reading:

The Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton. It was so magical. My brother and I were addicted to the entire series and I think I went on to read everything Enid Blyton ever wrote after that. Loved The Famous Five, too, and also that series about the boy who joins the circus, but I can’t remember what it’s called.

The book that makes me laugh:

No one does heartbreak and hilarity as well as Marian Keyes, but I’m mentioning her later so for this I’ll choose The Little White Car by Danuta De... see more

What’s in a name?

Coming up with titles for books can be a tricky process, but it’s one of the most important things to get right. I thought you might like some insight into how we came up with my titles, starting with my first…

Lucy in the Sky came courtesy of my brother, Kerrin Schuppan, who has always been incredibly creative (he’s head of menswear at super-stylish clothing company Country Road in Australia –www.countryroad.com.au if you’re interested). I was about to... see more
