Nominated for a Liebster Award

Alright, so this is an introduction to the author – not a real award. But let’s start off with a bit of fun, shall we?

A very dear friend of mine, Bee from beehalton.com, also an aspiring writer, tagged me with the Liebster Award, showing her support as I jump head first into blogging.

So here goes.

The Question’s

As nominated by Bee

What is your favorite book and/or movie?

My favorite adult movie is the Mummy. But I will always be a sucker for the Labyrinth, which was my favorite film in childhood. RIP David Bowie ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

As for books, there are just so many fabulous books out there. I have to give top marks to JK Rowling for all the Harry Potter books as without them dyslexia might have won. But I also like Shogun by James Clavell, Kathrine by Anya Seton, and anything by Dan Brown and Elizabeth Chadwick.

Who has been the biggest influence in your life?

My Father. He is the loveliest man you will ever meet and I cherish him. I call him Hagrid because he looks like the ‘Keeper of Keys and Grounds at Hogwarts’ and he has such a good nature and kindliness to animals.

Where do you hope to be in 5 years time?

In a clean and tidy house with a good book, married to my future hubby with maybe a kiddie on the way and a pet dog by my knee.

Relaxing with a good book after a long walk in the woods with future husband, having drifted in a warm bath and eaten a nice meal.

Describe yourself in 5 words?

Ambitious, nice, creative, curious, sensible.

What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?

Carpe Diem

Zombie attack or alien invasion, if one had to happen, which would you prefer?

Zombie attack. Let’s just say I know a guy and we’ve got it covered. High vantage point, blunt implements, and a bottle of Glenfiddich.

My old purple KA was once a tribute to the Zombie Apostolic Task Force.

About ten minutes.

Start a blog and finish my book.

Lara Croft from Tomb Raider. She’s super fit, athletic, intelligent and a very rich archeologist adventurer…actually that still sounds pretty good.
