7 FACTS ABOUT ME (oh, come on, don't yawn already...)
I was born and raised in Gibraltar and am bilingual (English and Spanish). Until the age of eight, I lived behind a closed border and only knew the 2.5 square miles known as "The Rock"... according to my distant cousin, when I was about 5 she visited and told me she had been in Spain. I asked where that was and she pointed across the straits of Gibraltar and said, "There!" Ha ha... it was right in front of me!
|Gibraltar... my rock!|
I am a jack of all trades, master of none (or many - who knows?). I have worked as a trainee accountant, secondary school mathematics teacher, swimming teacher, and now am a self-published "indie" author and stay-at-home mum! Most the time I have no idea what I want to do in life... can't I try it all?
|Hey there... I sometimes sell books!|
I LOVE to read books that make me feel some sort of emotion... I want to connect with the characters, feel for them, cry, get excited by what they do, mull over the predicaments!
|Think happy thoughts...|
My favourite novelists are both men and women! I love fiction laced with a romantic undertone. Ken Follett, Jane Austen, Jeffrey Archer, Sarra Manning, Leon Uris, Stephenie Meyer, J.K. Rowling (NOT The Casual Vacancy!), etc...
|Oh... is that MY book on the shelf? HA!|
I am constantly fighting to keep in shape and have ranged from a size 8 to 16! At my height of 5 foot, 1 inch... I need to watch what I do!
|Give me CAKE!|
I enjoy exercise - my favourites being walking and swimming! I swam for Gibraltar when I was 14 years old!
|Not me - I wish! :)|
I once had a photo shoot with my sister - it was a laugh! The best pictures I have ever had taken of me! :)
|Not my usual look!|
Here are my nominations!
