Are there books you really don’t enjoy?
I hate a slow pace and while description is as necessary as any other part of your story, too much of it is a killer. If my thoughts say ‘for goodness sake get on with it, it’s time to put it aside, I then hate it all the more because I can’t put it aside, if I start reading a book, I finish it. I know, stupid.
If you could study any subject at university, what would you pick?
I studied the sciences because I saw the chance of a better future. If money hadn’t been an issue, I would have chosen something akin to literature.
How do you work through self-doubt and fear?
I ignore it for the purpose of work, but it never goes away so I guess I live with it.
What is your greatest character strength?
I lose the plot occasionally, but I am focused and determined by nature so I don’t stay down for long.
What is your weakest character trait?
I suffer from being oversensitive… big time!
