To answer, or not to answer: that is the question?

I recently filled out an author questionnaire (with photo) on the website and, I have to say, I struggled over some of the questions.

Not being as well-known as some children’s writers, like, say, Katie Price (aka Jordan), Ricky Gervais, Sarah Ferguson or Geri Halliwell, I wondered whether people would really be interested in my favourite food or most embarrassing moment.

I thought I might try the jokey approach but worried it would look like I wasn’t taking the job seriously. In the end, I aimed for the middle ground and then asked Irma for her verdict on the finished answers.

“It’s a bit melancholic,” she told me. “Verging on the tragic even.”
Maybe she means I’m a miserable, old git. I’ll let you be the judge – you can find the questionnaire in full here.   JOHN
