Looks like I've been tagged - twice!!

First by Jess and then by Celesta

Instead of answering two sets of questions I've mixed them all together and picked a random subset of 11. So here they are along with their answers.

1. How old were you when you started writing?
I've been writing ever since I was old enough to hold a crayon.
2. What's your favourite movie/book?
Tricky question - how do I decide this one! Okay - let's go for the book I've read the most times and in that case it is The Crysalids by John Wyndham.
3. If you were the main character of a book, what genre would it be?
Some sort of Space Opera - definitely!
4. What genre do you write in?
I write SciFi thrillers for kids.
5. If you could have a superpower, what would it be and why?
I would be able to take away sadness.
6. What do you like to read?
I read pretty widely. But I particularly like discovering new authors.
7. What is something unusual that you've done?
I once had a snowball fight on an ice floe in the Greenland Sea
8. How do you get names for your characters?
Phone book, and baby name lists.
9. List the top three websites you use.

New Scientist
Will it rain today - well I do live in Blighty :-)

10. Besides reading and writing, name two other hobbies you have.
Hillwalking and growing my own.
11. Where in the world would you like to go?
I'd love to go to Japan.

In turn I will tag the following Campaigners from Rach's Platform Building Campaign. And I'm asking each of you the same set of questions.

Sher A Hart: My Best Part
Six Impossible Things
alberta's sefuty chronicles
David Powers King
Gina Carey
Katharine Gerlach
Imagine Today


  1. I've been tagged before, but I'll add the questions I haven't answered to that post. OK?

  2. Ooh, I'd love to visit Japan someday too!

    Thanks for the tag! Looks like I'm going to have to answer lots of questions *grin*

  3. Ah Cat - doesn't surprise me you've been tagged before. There seem to be quite a few going around.

    And Marieke - looking forward to reading your answers ;-)

  4. '5. If you could have a superpower, what would it be and why?
    I would be able to take away sadness.' I love that. Good stuff, Kate.

    Fun post :)

  5. Thanks for the tag, I'll answer the questions for tomorrow's post. :)

  6. Love these tags! I like your super power. Thoughtful.


Please share you thoughts, I'd love to hear from you....
