Five things

Oo-er. I’ve been tagged by Jess to list “Five Things You May Not Know About Me”.

Here goes:

1. I’m half Scottish. My grandmother was a Robertson, so if I have a clan to belong to – that’s it. King Duncan (the one who was murdered by Macbeth) is way back in my line of ancestors.

2.I was born prematurely – two months early – and weighed only 4lbs.

3. I have tinnitus, the condition where I hear noises in my head that aren’t really there. (I’m not bonkers, I promise!) I manage to ignore it most of the time, but when it’s very quiet I can always hear a high-pitched whine – a bit like the noise you used to get when BBC closed down for the night.

4. I’m addicted to playing Tomb Raider. A kick-ass heroine who gets to explore beautiful locations and exotic temples – what’s not to like?

5. I’m married to a forensic scientist. I can snort at CSI like a pro now. Why, oh why, do they do everything in the dark? Use the light switch, for goodness’ sake! Having said that, I love the show and watch it every week – even if I have it on good authority that half of the fingerprints on their computer are upside-down.

A note from Sharon, the creator of People Collection (which seems to have originated this "Five Things..." list), says: PLEASE LEAVE THE FOLLOWING IN ALL ‘PEOPLE COLLECTION’ POSTS:Remember that it isn’t always the sensational stuff that writers are looking for, it can just as easily be something that you take for granted like having raised twins or knowing how to grow beetroot. Mind you, if you know how to fly a helicopter or have worked as a film extra, do feel free to let the rest of us know about it! :)

I tag two Liz Fs: Liz Fielding and Liz Fenwick!

Firstly, MEGA congrats on seeing your first release come out! I'm looking forward to reading it, but I've just subscribed to the M&B Romance series so I'll have to wait and see if they send it to me first.

Thanks for joining in with the five things people collection. Hugs on the tinnitus - I get it from time to time and its awful!

Sue :-)

Thanks, Fiona! I've been around the 'net for a long time -- I'm pretty much an open book, but I'll do my best!

PS I ordered your book from M&B yesterday, along with the latest Bella Brides. A weekend treat in store!

I tried to get into Tomb Raider because it looked like so much fun but I could *not* control Lara! I could never make her jump and she was always walking into walls. I think my talents lie with Mortal Kombat and Super Mario Kart :)
