Welcome, Bonnie. Pull up a seat and lets talk men. Who would be your ideal man?
Ooh, nice choice. A woman of class, I see. But was it always thus??? What about in your younger days?
I am showing my age here but my first love was Troy Tempest - the puppet in Stingray with a jaw you could eat your dinner off!! And he had a beautiful 'girlfriend' called Marina and I used to wish I was her!
My 'Hero' would have to be the very same Troy Tempest - I've just googled him and it turns out that Gerry Anderson modelled him on James Garner which explains my crush 'cos I also loved 'Maverick' - this is really showing my age!! Marina was modelled on Bridget Bardot so I wasn't so far off having a crush on her too! I've just spent a happy nostalgic twenty minutes watching YouTube clips of Stingray with Troy singing his love majestically to a reclining Marina - great stuff!
Ah, I can hear it now.
I also had a more realistic crush on George Harrison, just to be different, because everybody else fancied Paul or John.
No, sorry, he's not in uniform. The puppet wins it! So what did you want to be when you grew up, Bonnie? A puppet master? Deep sea diver?
Shame! Never in films, though, eh? I take it, being a writer, you read lots as a child? What books stick with you from your early days?
Then, once I progressed to the joys of the public library, I would read anything by Enid Blyton, especially the famous five adventure but I truly adored The Chalet School stories by Elinor M. Brent-Dyer, which were pure escapism for a working class kid like me.
At secondary school I won a book prize of Jane Eyre and at that point, Rochester rather than Troy became my hero!
Good choice! So tell us about your writing, Bonnie.
Originally from the North East of Scotland, these days I spend as much time as I can in a small village north of Rome (and if you've ever been to the grey, cold north coast of Scotland, you'll understand why! ) I am co-author of the recently published 101 Erotic Nights: The Sheherazade Diaries:
Frustrated that the spark has gone out of her marriage and desperate to feel that connection again, Beth Rogers has a plan: to seduce her husband Miles all over again.
Throughout their new bedtime adventures, Beth keeps a diary. Soon this diary becomes more than just a collection of erotica to arouse Miles in the bedroom, it helps Beth realize she wants more from this marriage than perhaps he can give her…
A tantalising reimagining of 1001 Arabian Nights for the 50 Shades generation!
Exciting! Well good luck with your writing, Bonnie, and hope to see you on here again.
