1. What does "vanilla" mean to you?
It's a flavour of ice cream, clearly. Oh, and a tiny lesbian bar in the gay quarter who's clientele stare at people they've never seen quite ferociously.
2. Is there any moment from your life that you remember in slow motion?
Most of it, due to over analysis, both good and bad, but particularly moments of falling of horses and seeing the floor about to hit my face. Certainly nothing romantic.
3. What's the most unsettling movie you've ever seen?
Hostel, without a doubt. I know there are worse films, but after this I vowed not to subject myself to movies with such pointless horrific violence. Burlesque is a close second, there's no accounting for crimes of cliche.
4. If you had to get a tattoo on your face, what would you want it to look like?
Something tribal of my own making, like Chakotay.
5. How many monkeys jumping on the bed?
What? None. I fired them after the last escapade. My poor cat will never recover.
6. Which of the books or stories you've written is your favourite?
I've only had one story published so far, so I suppose it has to be that. But I imagine my favourite will always be the next one.
