The Day of the Triffads (spent years planning for the end of the world and wondering what clothes I should choose to wear, Levi black jeans won of course).

2. Describe your high school English teacher in three words...

3. Your book of the moment?
Just finished reading No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency.

Arm chair, corner of my lounge room, looking out at the trees

7. Favourite book store?
Too many.

8. Character you wish you had created?
