What image do you have as your lock screen?


Photograph of Countess Sophie de Torby. This is one of my favorite photos of her. Looking all glamorous with no care of the world.

Have you ever had a crush on a teacher?   No

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Owning my own home, writing some romance and fantasy novels (with some comedy in the mix), teaching and traveling the world.

If you could be anywhere else right now, where would it be?  Barcelona. I visited there two months ago and I already miss it.

What was your coolest Halloween costume? Dressing up as a fairy (with sparkling wings).

What’s your favorite 90’s TV show?  I’m more of a 90s cartoon person since I was a 90s kid after all.

Last kiss?  Two months ago (if kissing on the cheek counts)

Have you ever been stood up?  Yes  

Have you ever been to Las Vegas?  Yes

Favourite pair of shoes? Sandals

Favourite fruit?  Grapes

Favourite book?  Secret Fire by Johanna Lindsey

Stupidest thing you’ve ever done? When I was about 13 or 14, I stole a small packet of chips in the cafeteria when none of the lunch staff was looking. And I never got caught. I don’t look back to that episode too fondly now.

I’ll tag @teatimeatwinterpalace @adini-nikolaevna and other people who want to  do this.
