- If you could have any superpower, what would it be? Why?
I would want a magical remote control. I would love to “rewind” to be able to right the wrongs I’ve said and done. I’d also love to “fast forward” through traffic jams, long meetings and airport delays, too. And that “mute” button could be quite handy…
- Who is your style icon?
I don’t really have what you’d call a style icon. However, I do admire Diane Keaton’s down-to-earth, yet classic and sophisticated look. Wish I had her wardrobe budget!
I have a few quotes that I really love. One of them is this: "The larger the island of knowledge, the longer the shore of wonder" by Ralph Sockman. I suppose it’s because I love learning. Plus that quote helps me to remember not to be arrogant; there is always something out there you don’t know.
I am always truly honoured when people say nice things about my writing and my blog. That means an awful lot to me, because I put myself into my writing. When people compliment my writing, that’s a commentary on who I am, and that means so much.
That said, though, I think the greatest compliment I’ve received came recently from my daughter: “Mom, you’re a genius! No wonder I keep you around.” I’ll never forget that because it was spontaneous.
Right now, there’s a very good reggae mix that my daughter made in my car CD player. Usually, though, it’s either classic jazz or classic rock and roll.
I have to admit, I’m a morning person. Not the relentlessly cheery and annoying “morning” type, but I get up very early.
I like both very much, but I’m allergic to most cats. So I am proudly owned by two dogs.
Besides reading a lot of crime fiction, I also write mysteries. So I wanted a blog name that would express that without being too much like an advertisement. No magic or secret to it, really.
So there you have it. Nothing electrifying, but those are my answers to the questions. Some people pass this game on, and if you would like to play and answer the questions yourself, feel free to do so!! But I’ll let you decide..
