1) If you wrote an autobiography, what would its title be and why?

“The Girl in the Costume: Cats, Coats and Kiwis”

I met David Tennant whilst in cosplay during Doctor Who filming in 2007, and from that moment I was referred to as the girl in the costume. Even the Doctor Who writer Russell T Davies knew me as the girl in the costume when we met at the same performance of Hamlet at the RSC. Everyone knew of me as this super hero identity, and meeting people puts a face to the name. It changed my life.

Costumes still feature in my reputation. You are as likely to see me in a long hero coat as you are a sparkly bra for belly dancing.

Cats, coats and kiwis are what I talk about the most, which is why it’s the title of my blog, and probably my future biography.

2) What has your writing/ blogging journey been like from the start until now?

Slow, due to my disability. I’m never short of ideas, just the energy to write them. Everything has to go in a book in some semblance of order, so it makes sense when I have the energy to go back to it.

3) What do you hope to get from UK Meet that’s different from other conferences?

Having never been to another conference apart from the UK Meet, I have no reference point. I’m not in a hurry to go elsewhere. 😉
