Ten things I want my readers to know about me
by Jenny Blackhurst
1) I’m a huge Friends fan
2) I’m obsessed with organisation tools, blogs and self-help books. Books that will help me write faster, write better, manage my To Do lists and cook my dinner for me.
3) I was made redundant when the shop I was manager of closed down unexpectedly. My son was 4 weeks old which made finding a job difficult so I decided there was never going to be another chance like this to start a new career. Over the next eighteen months I wrote How I Lost You in between feeds and bum changes.
4) I started writing at the age of eleven. Myself and another girl planned an entire series along the same lines as Sweet Valley High but I never got further than writing the first few chapters of each. I still have them in the loft.
5) I’m addicted to stationary. Post it notes, note books, pens, I feel most at home in a stationary shop or a library surrounded by books or notebooks.
6) I only learned to drive this year, at the age of 34. I failed three tests when I was 23 and thought I’d never learn, until we moved to the countryside and it was learn to drive or home school my children. I learned pretty quickly faced with that horror.
7) Speaking of horror, I love horror movies. The older the better really, The Ring, The Wicker Man, Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream. They remind me of my teenage years.
8) I have a ridiculous amount of hobbies and interests which I had to cut back on to concentrate on work and my family. I love to crochet, am always doing jigsaws, papercutting, crafting, baking, online courses and obviously reading and writing.
9) I want to write in lots of genres. I enjoy telling stories and I don’t feel that should be restricted to one or two genres. If you have a story to tell you should tell it regardless if it’s horror and you’re a crime writer.
10) My main career goal is to keep learning. I’ve been a student for the majority of my life and I love to learn new things but this relates specifically to writing. If I feel like I’ve developed in some way from book to book then it’s a success for me regardless of how many copies it sells (although of course I’d like to sell some too!)
