IF YOU COULD INVENT ANYTHING YOU WANTED, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

Time dilation device.... yes I've been watching too much sci-fi. It would be nice to slow time down sometimes as it seems to rush by a bit too fast for my liking. So much to do and so many ideas and so little time.

IF YOU COULD TRAVEL ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, WHERE WOULD YOU GO AND WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

The one place I always wanted to go was Alaska..... but I did that a few years ago, and saw whales and bears while I was there. I've done a lot I wanted to do including volunteering with rhinos in South Africa, Kenya safaris and diving with turtles in the Seychelles. So off the top of my head I can't think of anywhere, right now I enjoy being home with my dogs.

IF YOU WERE TO WALK INTO A ROOM FULL OF PEOPLE WHAT CAN YOU CONFIDENTLY SAY YOU DO BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE IN THE ROOM?

I'm generally not a very confident person, but I'd guess I'd have to go with multi-tasking, I'm a great multi-talker.

WHAT IS THE MOST RANDOM THING YOU HAVE RESEARCHED FOR WRITING?

I haven't done much research for my writing yet as I'm quite a new writer, but I did read 'The Five' which is based on the lives of the 5 Jack the Ripper victims as I have a script I wrote based around Jack the Ripper, one which I'm now looking to convert into a novel. Not random but it was interesting.
