    Question 1 – Flawed which makes her difficult – but juxtapose that against her giving nature. Add in a touch of HIV positive and all of the associated ‘baggage’ with that – and there are some who will write off the character. Transgressive is difficult to write

    Question 2 : The Temple, and The Trickster – total of 2

    Question 3 – born down south, now lives overseas with her husband

    Question 4 – 10 September, 2012

    Question 5 – I count 6 books – and while I love dragons (and have book 1 of that series) I also adore cat stories – so Cats in Command is high up there.

    Question 6 - The photo from the storm – with the icicles over the window – I remember storms that did that!
