Five Fun Questions Answered by Lizzie Lamb

 Author Lizzie Lamb answers five fun questions:

Lizzie Lamb

First lines are important in novels. What is the favourite first line you’ve written and from what work is it? 

"The music hit Fliss as she rounded the corner of Elgin Crescent, Notting Hill. The sugared almond pink and yellow houses were almost vibrating in the late May evening as I Predict a Riot blasted out from an open window half way down the street. Her stomach flipped over with a mixture of excitement and nerves as she acknowledged the Kaiser Chiefs were bang on message. It was going to be that kind of night. That kind of party." Tallk Dark and Kilted

If someone told you your characters were sitting in the room across the hall, would you walk across to meet them? Why or why not?

I’d love to meet my heroines in real life and tell them not worry about their lives being in disarray. All will be well. In the words of the song: every little thing’s gonna be alright.

If you could magically become one of your characters, who would it be?

I think Charlee Montague in Boot Camp Bride as she has an amazing adventure, realises her dream of becoming a journalist and marries the gorgeous Rafael Fonseca-Ffinch. As one of my reviewers put it: ‘I’d love to be them and live in their world.’

What day of the week is your favourite for writing?

I write every day of the week whenever I have a chance. I try to do some writing/ social networking and then go off and do something totally different. That way I find ideas percolate through the synapses of my brain and almost write the novel for me!!

Compare one of your novels to a food item or entré. (provide a purchase link)

Tall Dark and Kilted – as addictive as chocolate. Once you start, you can’t stop. Best enjoyed with a glass of single malt, Scottish whisky (or, uisge beatha).

  1. Thanks to Pauline and Famous Five Plus for this fun post. I love short blog posts as they're easy for readers to 'digest' in one bite. A bit like the chocolate on this page. Yummy as my heroes.

  2. I think Prosecco should be in there too, Lizzie - it bubbles and fizzes just like your books. Am waiting for the next one!

  3. Thanks June - will have to get some in!!
