To answer, or not to answer: that is the question?

June 16, 2010

 

I recently filled out an author questionnaire (with photo) on the authorhotline.com website and, I have to say, I struggled over some of the questions.

Not being as well-known as some children’s writers like, say, Katie Price (aka Jordan), Ricky Gervais, Sarah Ferguson or Geri Halliwell, I wondered whether people would really be interested in my favourite food or most embarrassing moment.

I thought I might try the jokey approach but worried it would look like I wasn’t taking the job seriously. In the end, I aimed for the middle ground, after which I asked my other half for her verdict on the finished answers.

“It’s a bit melancholic,” she told me. “Verging on the tragic even.”
Maybe she means I’m a miserable old git. I’ll let you be the judge – you can find the questionnaire in full here.

While you’re at it, dig the dirt on others in our group – Alison, AnneKatharine, Marion, and Odette.

    I enjoyed your answera to the questionnaire, John. They made me laugh and they were interesting, too. What more could one ask?
