She still refused to look at him, but she could feel the heated flush of anger again in her cheeks. “Cooperate with the guards.

This is just a quick post about something that’s been on my mind for a while. It’s sad that there are so many preconceived ideas about YA novels, ideas that show those who speak about them, very often haven’t read any. I’m writing for adults, children and Young Adults and in one of my writer’s […]

Thank you for participating in this. I’m still thinking about some of your answers. They left an echo somewhere inside me. I loved your “I’m From” poem. Also that last picture with the tiny skulls and the books and the black candles. It’s perfect.
Thanks you for asking me, Delia.
I enjoyed your interview very much, Caroline. Loved the imagery evoked by your prose poem.
Thanks, Jacqui. I’m glad to hear that.
This is a really neat idea!
I am heading over to Delia’s blog top read the interview now.
I do so enjoy reading more about my blogging friends – I had no idea you’d written so much? Hopefully one day I’ll be reviewing a book of yours. Also, you make me glad that I have kept hold of my Lucy English novel, even though it’s been on the shelves for years without my getting to it (same old story). It’s such a pleasure when a forgotten book turns up in the context of a recommendation!
Yes, I’ve written quite a lot. Some of it needs to be revised but a lot of it is quite finsihed.
I, too, hope to review one of your books some day. 🙂
I hope you will enjoy Lucy English.
Loved your guest post, Caroline, especially your prose poem 🙂 I also loved reading about your favourite books. I want to read all of them. Lucy English sounds so enticing! Thanks for sharing your thoughts and telling us more about yourself. I have always enjoyed participating in reading events that you and Delia host and so I am looking forward to the next event that you are planning to host together.
Thanks, Vishy. I’m glad you liked it. I enjoyed reading yours as well.
I hope Delia and I will organize something else very soon.
I hope you get to read Lucy English. I really loved the two novels I read.
What an interesting idea! Most book bloggers (and you are no exception) are modest persons that don’t like to speak too much about themselves – so it needs someone else to poke us and ask these questions. Enjoyed your answers and it will be interesting to read one day one of your (then published) books.
Thanks for reading the interview and the wishes.
It’s a great idea to get to know someone a bit better.
Have taken a peek and will go now and read properly–I love reading about my blogging friends and so nice, too, to see the photos–like looking at your shelves a while back when you shared your own books! Thanks to Delia for sharing this!
Thanks for reading, Danielle.
I like these posts as well.
Forgot to mention that your poem was fantastic, Caroline.
Thanks, Carole. 🙂
wondering why you did not post my comment ?
Is it because I do not currently have a blog ?
Pity that .
I’m sorry, but I didn’t receive a comment from you. I have no moderation – so every comment is automatically published for everybody, with or without blog.
But I will check my spam folder. I’ll let you know right away.
Jody, I checked again. There is nothing in the spam folder.
I most certainly don’t exclude people without blog.
