Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Never trust a sword to a man who can't dance

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. I'm noisy. That's odd, in a novelist.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. That's a big call. I like the quiet people - the ones you find out, later, have done extraordinary things but didn't think to tell you...

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. Pieces of music, rather. The Moonlight sonata by Beethoven. Now, that's a song without words. Leader of the Pack. Torn. The Snow Patrol song I keep singing but don't know the title (hits me like a hammer, though.) Almost anything by Nick Cave. But this is just today...

Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?

A. Right now, it's planning my spring veggie garden and thinking about the chook house we're about to build

And, at last, at last I've logged into reaching out again. A few years ago I used to blog quite a lot. Then I got all blogged-out. Now I'm back and that's because, of course, "The Dressmaker" will be published soon. I'm eager to re-connect. To say hello. To find out if the story works.
