I'm getting addicted to Friday quickies. Is that something a romance writer should say???

Rachel, loved learning more about you. A glass of dry white wine is always a treat.

Have to say I'm partial to a good mellow red rather than a crisp white wine. If you don't learn something (maybe about a person) new everyday you aint' lived! (ditto on British weather-Scottish weather is crap right now!)

Thanks for stopping by, ladies - I love this quick fire questions. Wonder if Sarah will let me pinch the idea for my own blog...??

I love how you say "pinch the idea", Rachel. I just outright tell her. I'm stealing your idea, Sarah. It's too brilliant for just one person. LOL No, I'm kidding. Great post ladies! I do love these Friday Quickies, though. And I wanna hear all about this helicopter rescue during the flood! Geesh, that sounds terrifying! Of course, knowing you're a writer's always good info for the next book!

Hi AJ!

Funnily enough I have used the French flood in the opening of the book I am writing as we speak - it's taken me two years to be able to write about it, loL!
