Entertainer Blogger Award
I was nominated for the Entertainer Blogger Award by gorifithic ( https://makhailrehman.wordpress.com/) – thanks for the nomination!! What fun!
Interview questions….here we go!
- WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD ITEM AT THE MALL?
How delightfully random.
I get coffee there nearly every time I go, but my go-to treat has to be a chocolate malt milkshake from Johnny Rocket’s. My cousin got me one a few years back and I’m obsessed — chocolate is my weakness!
- WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK?
This is always the hardest question for me, because I read so much. There are so many sub-categories to this question.
My favorite series, by far, is Harry Potter. I reread the entire series about once a year because I get something new out of it every time, and I think there are so many interesting characters and storylines and messages in there.
I will always read anything by Shakespeare. Anything. My favorite tragedies are Othello and Julius Caesar. I also love As You Like It and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
For a kid’s book, I’d choose The Little Prince. I’m obsessed.
As far as sci-fi, I’d go with both Ender’s Game and Ender’s Shadow (both were fascinating), as well as The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress.
I’m also in love with Agatha Christie novels, particularly And Then There Were None and Murder on the Orient Express. Anything featuring Hercule Poirot is 100% worth the read.
Other favorites include, in no particular order: In Cold Blood ; One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest ; Fight Club ; most recently, Gone Girl and The Martian ; and probably dozens of others that I can’t think of off the top of my head.
- WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING?
I needed an outlet. I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember, and it became a kind of therapy. I’m Irish and therefore stubborn and disinclined to discuss my emotions, so writing is a way for me to explore my feelings and experiences without (god forbid) talking to someone else about them. When I had a few poems written, I really wanted a place to keep them all together and get feedback from both friends and strangers, so I created a blog and named it these are her stories in reference to Law & Order: SVU, one of my all-time favorite TV shows.
- WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR FREE TIME?
Write! I write almost every day. I also obviously love reading, even more so if I can do it out in the sunshine. I love to cook, so I’m always trying new recipes. I like to watch movies if I want to relax. And I love being near the ocean, especially if no one else is around.
