Interview with Giddymoose

What do your fans mean to you?
My GiddyMoosers are ingenious, beautiful people. Our GiddyMoose community comes from every walk of life, we speak multiple languages, live in many different countries, our cultures and backgrounds are diverse and we are inter-generational. I value each and every principled and fabulous one of them and they are ultimately the reason I keep writing.

Think of a chef that creates a delicious feast for his or her guests and watches from the kitchen as the diners eat and are eager for the next course. When they lick the side of their mouths instead of wiping it with the napkin, we smile. But more importantly, we are energised to cook for them all over again. That's how we feel about our fans.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Hmmmm, what inspires me to get out of bed? That's a little deep don't you think? Let me first say that often I feel inspired to stay in bed and do as little as possible for as long as possible. If I must provide a final answer for the question though, I will say, often my burst of inspiration begins with not wishing to wet the bed.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, I do remember it! It was nuts. The main characters were a soul-less goldfish and a large fat red tongue. You can use your imagination to construct the rest!
Who are your favorite authors?
God. And JRR Tolkien. I mean, there are many others too, in fact as most would say 'too many to mention'. So I'll just stick to my top two.
What are you working on next?
Part two in the Binky series and a couple of other stories that have been whizzing around in my head for a while.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Thinking and eating ice-cream mostly and I do like to listen to general knowledge quiz shows. Sometimes I go on long walks and I do like bike riding.
I think better in a steam or sauna and I can happily eat ice-cream at any time of the day.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I look for multicultural books for all ages and all themes these days, both fiction and non-fiction. Last week I had a thirst for poetry and the week before that I read interesting and scholarly books on human anatomy. I'm quite interested in eastern european literature at the moment too. Strangely you may say, it's not the cover I look for- it's the theme.
Describe your desk
It's a hard surface anywhere, on a train, plane or automobile.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
One of the greatest joys for me is being able to flush the stories and ideas out of my mind and onto paper and at the end of a long process, seeing, hearing or reading the warm appreciation of the readers.
What do you read for pleasure?
Recipes mostly. My favourites are key lime pie, mulligatawny soup, peach cobbler and different kinds of stew with suet dumplings.
