It’s NaNoWriMo time and as I’ve got my daily word count in I decided to reward myself with a little bit of fun. A friend of mine on Facebook posted this thingy and invited others to join it, but it seemed too much fun to just use as a throwaway FB post so I decided to make a blog post for it instead. So here are …
40 odd things about me . . .
1. Do you like mustard?
Don’t hate it, but prefer mayo.

Absolutely not – hate guns and even avoid them in my fiction if I can. Would rather have a wand for defense!
