Lucinda Elliot, an accomplished writer, nominated me for the Silver Quill Bloggers Award. Her e-book ‘That Scoundrel Emile Dubois or The Light of Other Days’ came out in August and available from FirstyFish, Amazon, Smashwords, etc. Thank you Lucinda. I am so thrilled that a professional, published writer has nominated me! Lucinda’s blog address is: http://sophieandemile.wordpress.com/ and it is well worth visiting it! I use my blog as a coping mechanism. I have never written professionally, had anything published nor have I had any training.
My answers to the seven questions: –
1. Do you prefer rhyming or non rhyming poetry?
Rhyming, without a doubt.
2. Favourite Shakespeare play?
I first read Macbeth as a child and although I own the complete set of Shakespearian works, Macbeth remains my favorite. The witches scene is liltingly beautiful and is what drew me into Shakespeare’s world. We visited his birthplace and Anne Hathaway’s cottage in December.
3. Favourite author?
At the present, June Rachuy Brindle for her wonderful books on the Theseus legend, ‘Ariadne’ and ‘Phaedra’.
4. Name three people you admire.
Firstly – Nelson Mandela – one of the greatest statesmen the world has ever seen (and I have ever been privileged to meet)! Secondly – Archbishop Desmond Tutu who is the fairest and most just man I have ever met and most importantly my beautiful daughter Vicky. Vicky has battled ill health all her life, beaten all odds and astounded the medical world by surviving the death sentence she was born with. She does not know how to give up.
5. What is your favourite music album?
Phantom of the Opera – Andrew Lloyd Webber
6. Which colour do you most dislike?
7. Name a poem or song which makes you feel emotional.
‘”Never Alone” featuring Hillary Scott and Lady Antebellum (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lnNK4Alwbsw)
