Hangin' Out with Kate Lloyd!
I confess that I initially thought Kate was a debut author because I've seen her latest book, Leaving Lancaster, featured several places online. But it wasn't until I visited her website that I discovered Leaving Lancaster is her second novel. Oh, well...didn't make me any less eager to get to know her better! :o)
Hope y'all enjoy our chat today!
Not including writing, what was your first job?
Working in a fabric store, then managing a craft & gift store.
Oh, I'm so jealous! It has always been a wishful dream of mine to own and operate one.
Gone with the Wind!
If you could have any one superpower, what would it be?
Filing my stacks of papers and notes ... Make that organizing my whole house!
What food do you love, even though you know you shouldn't?
Dark, dark coffee with whole whipping cream.
Which magazine do you pick up when you're stuck in a waiting room?
I almost always bring my own reading material and a note pad. In a bind? A gardening magazine.
Have you ever met anyone famous?
Many, most in the world of science, education, and medicine.
What did you do growing up that got you into trouble?
Talking back. My parents were strict but tolerant, but some of my teachers were not amused.
I don't think a Mozart, Handel, or Gilbert & Sullivan aria would win. Probably a piece from Phantom of the Opera or another musical. PS: I don't suffer stage fright.
I don't suffer from it, either, but there's no way I could pull off a Phantom song...talk about tough! But oh, what a show to see in person!
Kate, it sounds like you and I would never run out of things to talk about in a conversation...there are so many things we have in common! (Except the coffee....this gal is a tea drinker all the way.) Thanks so much for taking the time to let us get to know you better. :o)
