As part of Rachael Harrie's Fourth Writer's Platform Building Campaign, I've been tagged by C.M. Brown to answer the following questions: 

1.  How do the stories you write about come into fruition?
Generally I get inspired by an emotion of some kind. I seem to get a sense of a character, in some sort of vague situation, who is experiencing a strong emotion. From there I begin to build up a story, trying to maintain the atmosphere and tone that I experience when the idea first hits me.

2.  Do you think you are the type of person who plans for every eventuality, or do you prefer to
live life how it comes, without any organisation?
I would like to plan for every eventuality, but I think I am so disorganised I end up just taking life as it comes.

3.  What is your favourite song?
I have lots of favourites, but I love Foo Fighters' 'Best of You'.

4.  Do you sing it loudly to yourself?
Sometimes. Whenever the house is empty I sing constantly, as loudly as I can.

5.  Are you still friends with anyone you went to secondary school with?
Only on Facebook.

6.  What would be your dream job?
A writer/composer.

7.  How often do you speak with your sibblings?
Almost constantly.

8.  If you were an animal what creature would you like to be? Use your imagination.
A hawk.

9.   I love eating boiled eggs for breakfast, what is your favourite food?

10.  What piece of technology could you not live without?
My laptop.

11. Do you have a favourite piece of furniture?
Not really. Bed I suppose :D

I've also been tagged by at least two other people, so more answers to follow shortly! 


  1. Thanks for answering Sorcha, I am amazed how many people like their beds!

  2. Hey Sorcha, I am having difficulty trying to link you in my blog. I am getting RSS Feeds not activated, error messages. You probably need to activate this so people can contact you easier!

    1. I'll definitely look into that, thanks for the help!
