I was nominated by,https://sandandelion.wordpress.com/ . I find her Blog so inspiring and I have really enjoyed reading all her posts. Take a minute and check them out! I am sure you would love it as much as I have. Thank you so much for the nomination, i actually think i screamed when i read that i had been nominated 🙂

  • Create your own set of questions for your nominees to answer.

Now for the Questions:

Why did you decide to start a blog?

The reason i decided to Blog was to be quite frank, i needed to gain a platform, some experience in the writing world so to speak, rather just sat writing my book i felt the need to almost delve into a “more” professional setting, be with others that i have everything in common with.

What’s your favorite song?

Well now…let me think here a moment! I love love love all things Celtic, i was born and bred in Llanberis (North Wales) and so i am a great fan of the old Welsh folk songs, but equally i love all things modern too! I love Pink, Rihanna, Drake, Sam Smith Ellie Goulding. I also really love The Eagles, ACDC, Fleetwood Mac, Alice Cooper, Queen, Led Zepplin, Metallica i could go on and on and never stop. I LOVE to sing and people do say i have a rather magical singing voice.

What’s your favorite place to visit and why?

Since i was four years of age, i wanted to follow family tradition and move to America, but when i got the opportunity, i wasn’t in the right frame of mind, so i moved to the middle of no-where in Scotland instead! In the future we will buy a house over there and i am so sure i will be a very happy girl. I really am not sure why i wanted to move there so desperately, i guess when all said and done i just feel it pulling me in, there is so many things to see and do there, and i am totally in love with it.

What is your favorite thing to write about and why?

I just feel so at ease writing urban fantasy, full of monsters and demons and things we could never possibly even begin to imagine, it seems to be the way my head works. I love to make up my characters and send them down a journey but the journey has to be something out of the ordinary, something that takes my breath away and gives me a whole romantic notion of how it would be in their world.

What do you not like to write about and why?

Well as harsh as this may sound but to put it bluntly…my maternal family. About 4 years ago i wrote a book about my life and i got so down and far too wrapped up in all the negative stuff. The book is something i keep under lock and key and i will never show it to another person.

What things do you do when you’re feeling uninspired, struggling for ideas or overcoming writer’s’ block?

To be honest i grab myself a nice hot chocolate and give my brain time to come to its senses. I eat what i shouldn’t, i go and look around the beaches, trees, viking festivals anything and have an early night, i can guarantee you by a couple of hours or the next morning i am raring to go, full of new adventures.

Name one thing, other than being a blogger, that you’ve always wanted to be.

A writer, a singer and who wouldn’t love to be an owl, when i watch an owl fly across the sky at night i think to myself, you have the most amazing abilities, when i was five i tied feathered pillows to my arms and tried to fly off my bunk bed (i know what a silly girl)it didn’t work obviously and the only thing i achieved was a very bloody nose. Other than that i would of loved to of been in a position to open a center of some kind and help children who had nothing.

What character (from a movie, book, tv show, etc.) do you most identify with and why?

I don’t really know how to answer that one to be honest, i could identify with lots of different characters but i do have to say i mostly identify with the male ones as i find a lot of the female ones just too sweetly softy kind of thing, i am very motherly and girly in my own way but i always was a tom boyish kind of girl.

If you could give one piece of advice to your high school self (or middle school self if you’re in high school), what would it be?

Hmmm….that it is okay to go through phases and be a little different. Not to have to try so hard to be popular and fit in and not to be ashamed of myself for growing up in a rough neighborhood. Not to be embarrassed that i loved every part of history and geography when most others hated it, oh and last but not least to get better grades in maths.

Who’s your favorite author?

J.K Rowling, Denise Roberts , Sherrilyn Kenyon, William Shakespeare, there really are so so many, i don’t just stick to one genre, i read a book by Stanley Tookie Williams and Anthony Medina, who both at one time or another were death row prisoners. I was extremely inspired.

Random Facts About Myself:

  1. I was a teen mother at sixteen years of age.
  2. I was once contracted to the army.
  3. I am extremely un-romantic as a woman.
  4. I think i could still hit out a tune on the saxophone.
  5. I am a mother of four children and a wife to be.

  8. I love sex and the city.
  9. I am a good horse rider.
  10. I can cook a mean meatball and spaghetti dinner.
  11. I am extremely loyal and honest but equally people think i am unapproachable at times.
