Friday Never Leaving

My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Only the mediocre are always at their best.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I think perfect happiness should be within sight, but always just out of reach, otherwise what would we live for? Most days I'd settle for a balmy beach, a good book, a bottle of wine, and my kids playing in the surf (with life-jackets on so I don't have to watch them and I can read my book).

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Losing the people I love.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. I'd ask Owain Glyndwr's ghost where he was secretly buried (after all that hiding in the hills).

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

A. A minke whale with a harpoon gun. Payback time.
