Three Things About Myself

  1. Once, on an aeroplane to Spain I read all of the three novels I’d bought at WHS Smiths that were supposed to last me the week.
  2. As a child my favourite game was “libraries” where I laid all my books out on the bed and my poor Mum used to have to chose to borrow them and pay imaginary late fines.
  3. As a baby my parents would pop me a cardboard box (too young to sit up yet) and give me a picture book – I’d be happy for hours. I was a book geek from the get go!

Five Questions from Rosemarie Cawkwell

  • When did you start writing?

I started writing my current WIP in August 2016 but have written a diary most of my life (I think that’s helped me get into the swing of novel writing oddly enough).

  • Pluto: Planet or not?

Poor Pluto – planet all the way, even if he’s not, just not to hurt his feelings.

  • Favourite place to write?

At my husband’s desk before he wakes up. I then sneak all his papers back in place so he doesn’t notice I’ve been there!

  • Pen or word processor for the first draft?

I would be lost without my word processor. I’m in awe of those who write their first drafts on paper.

  • If you were a mythical creature, what would you be?

I would be a mermaid, because how cool would it be to breathe underwater?!
