Five on Friday

‘Five on Friday’ is a regular blog feature which is proving popular with readers as well as those taking part. The idea grew out of a Q&A post I was putting together for an author who said they were fed up of either being asked the same questions or asked random (& sometimes bizarre) odd questions.

I’ve opted for a series of standard questions whose answers can be light and fun, or offer the scope for a deeper response depending on how the author wishes to respond. Ideally the answers will be a mix of the two, but I hope the questions are such that they allow readers to get a sense of the author, and their personal likes, desires and hopes. The aim is to learn more about the person behind the books. The feedback from readers has indicated that not only has this feature introduced them to new authors, but also encouraged them to try genres outside their norm based on the fact they ‘like’ an author’s responses and are keen to investigate further. It’s also a reminder to go back and revisit some old favourites.

The following (and me!) have all taken part, just click on their name to see their responses.
