Welcome, Pauline Barclay, to Avalon Graphics’
Summer Ice Cream Social!!
[Cathy of Avalon Graphics] First things first – I have to ask what your
favorite ice cream flavor is:
[Pauline] Vanilla and even better if topped with caramel… yum!
[Cathy of Avalon Graphics] Pauline, please tell me a little bit about yourself!
I live on the island of Lanzarote with my husband and are two lovely rescue doggies. Before coming to Lanzarote I have lived in one or two different places. I was brought up in Bradford, West Yorkshire, UK which was the inspiration for my latest novel, Storm Clouds Gathering. My family left Yorkshire when I was in my mid teens and we moved to Suffolk. Years later, with my husband, we moved to Surrey and then to Holland. I spent many years working in the oil industry in communications and public relations. During those years, I burnt the midnight oil studying with the Open University. After six years I gained a BA (Hons) degree. Today I spend my time writing fiction. Including my latest book, I have four books published: Sometimes It Happens… Magnolia House, Satchfield Hall and Storm Clouds Gathering.’
Just a few curious questions I’m putting to my guests
while we are enjoying our ice cream today:
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Tough question because I love where we live. I love the sunshine, warm weather and life at a few beats slower than the mad rush of modern life.
What inspires you every day and why?
My lovely husband, our doggies and the wonderful sunshine we have here. All three inspire me to enjoy my live and make the very best of everything we have. Life is not about having too much, it’s about knowing how much you have.
What is your favorite food?
What is your fondest memory?
So many I’m not sure I can choose one. Holding my brother when he was born, seeing the look of love in our first rescue doggy’s eyes when we brought her home, feeling the prickle of tears when my husband organised a surprise long weekend in Portugal for one of my special birthdays. I could go on…..!
What is your pet peeve and why?
Favorite book in the world?
How did we meet?
Pauline, thank you so very much for stopping by and sharing with us! You are one of the most generous and bubbly people that I have ever met in the writing realm. I just adore you! It has been a true pleasure collaborating with you over the years and I look forward to many more giggles and sunny days as we continue working together in the future. You always bring a smile and I am lucky to have such a dear friend!
