What are your published works, and what are you working on?
I have had my first book E-Virus: The Diary of a Modern Day Girl published through Olympia Publishers, a London based publishing company. The others I still own the rights to. I am currently working on a spin off to E-Virus, this one is titled The Diary of a Grumpy Old Woman. I took my inspiration from my grandmother, she has such a quirky character I just had to get her down on paper!
If someone was just hearing about you for the first time what 1 thing would you want them to know?
I like pretty shoes!
Did you always want to be a writer?
No I didn’t. I never paid much attention in school and English was never a strong point of mine. I just stumbled across writing in my career in marketing and I realised I was quite good at it, then E-Virus was born.
What has been the biggest adventure of your life?
I don’t think I’ve had my biggest adventure yet, I’m still in my 20’s I have plenty of time!
If zombie apocalypse were to happen tomorrow would you be prepared?
Definitely not. I am a terrible planner, and I am in no way a prepper. I can barely prep for a meeting, let alone the apocalypse! I have more of a fuck it attitude to life, which isn’t always necessarily a good thing. I’m a wing it girl.
What 3 things do you feel everyone should have to be ready for a survival situation?
Food, Water and Warmth. The basics and this goes for any situation. Also, traffic snacks. Never plan a long car journey without traffic snacks. I recommend Pringles for driving and snacking on the go.
Who would you want with you if civilized society fell apart?
Daddy, most definitely. I’m a daddy’s girl and hes the best protector I know.
What 2 books would be in your bug out bag, knowing you would have to read them over and over?
The complete collection of Sherlock Holmes and Alice in Wonderland.
If we were thrown into the dark ages what would you miss most?
What is the most surprising fact about you?
For a girly girl, I actually do have an impeccable shot. I must have been a sniper in a past life.
