Welcome Rowan Speedwell, one of our fabulous authors attending from the US. I understand Rowan is currently melting somewhere in London. Bad luck if you packed for the standard British summer! 😉
1) Tell us about yourself in 100 words or fewer.
Born and bred on the south side of Chicago, lifelong White Sox fan (boo Cubs!). History buff. Only girl in a family of six kids. Cat-lover. Addicted to adverbs. Allergic to black pepper. Inveterate crafter and compulsive Pinner. Mentally tidy, but physically a slob.
I always say I’m not much interested in music, but music seems to find its way into practically everything I write. Art does too, but that makes more sense, since I’m a frustrated artist wannabe.
I am never bored. Overwhelmed, frequently, but never bored.
2) Tell us something about you that might come as a surprise!
I own a 6’ handmade longbow, and a tooled, purple leather quiver I made myself. I also have custom-made arrows with purple, green and white fletching. But I’m a lousy archer.
3) What do you like most about the LGBTQ genre?
Exploring the dynamics of male relationships. I have five brothers and eight male cousins, and the way the male mind works fascinates me.
4) What are you most looking forward to about UK Meet?
The “Meet” part! Meeting new friends and visiting with old ones! And, of course, the excuse to come back to the UK. So, I guess the “UK” part, too! Hell, I’m just excited!!
5) If you had one wish which would come true at UK Meet, what would that be?
Someone would offer me a fabulous job that would enable me to stay there!!
All UK Meet 2013 delegates are cordially invited to send in their answers to the above questions, along with links to any social networks/blogs/websites they want to include, and a completely optional mugshot/avatar. If you’d like to take part, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
