All the way from Hertfordshire! Put your hands together for Rowan Coleman who joins us today for Ten Questions.

Once again I have NetGalley to thank for the discovery of another author. Coleman is the author of a dozen novels of which I’ve had the pleasure to read two, The Day We Met and We Are All Made of Stars (there go more books on my TBR). I have not been disappointed with what I’ve read so far. Won’t you join me in adding her books to your TBR lists? After you check out her Ten Questions interview first that is 🙂

Ten Questions vol. 2 #22 Rowan Coleman

Bookish Devices: What is your favorite word?
Rowan Coleman: Mummy, even though my four year old twin boys can over use it a little.

BD: What is your least favorite word?
RC: Deadline!

BD: What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
RC: I get an enormous sense of perspective from looking up, at the stars, the solar system, our universe. The more I discover the more I realise how precious our earth is, and what a profound waste of our lives to live in hate when we could live in peace.

BD: What turns you off?
RC: Meaness. Be kind, whenever you can, to whoever to can be kind to.

BD: What sound or noise do you love?
RC: My children’s laughter. I bet everyone says that.

BD: What sound or noise do you hate?
RC: Traffic. I would like to live somewhere with no traffic!

BD: If you could have drinks with any author or literary figure, whom would you invite?
RC: I would love to have drinks with Charlotte Brontë, she fascinates and inspires me. Clever, revolutionary, passionate, courageous, we could stay up all night talking.

BD: What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
RC: I’d like to restore fine art. It seems like a very quite, peaceful, rewarding job to me!

BD: What profession would you not like to do?
RC: I wouldn’t want to work in an office again, ALL THE ENDLESS MEETINGS AND MEETINGS SPEAK! Argh!

BD: What would you choose for your last meal?
RC: Fish and chips, and chocolate cake. Massive carbs overload.

Bonus Question:

BD: What is your favorite curse word?
RC: I’m afraid I really quite enjoy swearing, but with so many children around I invent my own words, most often I am heard to be exclaiming PANTS! (Which is underwear in the UK)

Rowan, thank you for joining us! It’s been a pleasure.
