Welcome, Georgia. Sit yourself down. I've got a pot of tea and some cakes all ready, so... how would you describe your ideal man?
And a little inside information tells me you may not find this bloke unattractive? - I know, any excuse! But I have to take my kicks where I can get them. :-)
But how about the guys you crushed on in your teens?
Look at that smile! :-D
This boy keeps coming up again and again. I'm certainly glad I didn't have to come up with a picture of the first one, though!
I wanted to be a journalist. Would have been a complete disaster as I always fail to get facts absolutely right. Maybe that’s why I’ve ended up writing fiction? The other ‘must have’ job was to work in a museum. I ended up doing neither!
Facts are highly overrated. I'm a great believer in fiction. My age is a work in progress. I was 21 for many years, until my son got to an age when that would have been obscene. I've amended it of late. ;-)
How about reading back then. What sort of books were you into? See if you can you come up with three in particular.
This is hard to narrow down to just three. I always had my nose stuck in a book. The ones which have stuck with me are:
The Story of Doctor Dolittle by Hugh Lofting - I’ve always loved animals and had canaries, fish and guinea-pigs when a child. I was never allowed a dog. I’ve made up for it since and I’ve now got two spaniels. I’d love to be able to talk to them. Actually, I’ve a pretty good idea what they’re on about but we don’t exactly discuss Proust!
Over Sea, Under Stone by Susan Cooper - It tells the adventures of three children on holiday in Cornwall. They find a map and undertake a quest for treasure. It has an Arthurian theme and is a part of a series of novels.
A Pattern of Roses by K M Peyton - I love the Flambards books she wrote too but this is the one that sticks in the mind. It would probably be classed as ‘new adult’ now. It’s part mystery, part ghost story and part romance. I read it when far too young to understand its themes but have gone back to it again and again. The writing is extraordinarily powerful.
Ooo, I love guinea-pigs and Flambards. That was great, thanks, Georgia. So let's talk about your books now. How are things going there? You had one out just before Christmas and another just released, I believe? You have been a busy bee!
Thank you Wendy Lou, for allowing me to drop by. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed myself!
You can buy Georgia's e-books now and I will leave a list of contact points at the bottom. Bye!
