Apparently it’s interesting to add some information about the author on your blog. So here is mine. It is just enough to be meaningless!
I made it in the form of 50 questions. Enjoy!
1.) Apple juice or orange juice? — Uhh, orange?
2.) Are you a morning or night person? — Night.
3.) Which do you prefer, sweet or salty foods? — It depends on how I am feeling. But I have a sweet tooth.
4.) Are you a collector of anything? — Books? Origami? Clutter?
5.) If you could have any superpower, what would it be? — To fly. Or maybe magic?
6.) What is usually your first thought when you wake up? — I’m still alive!

11.) Ever been addicted to a video/computer game? Which one(s)? — Mario Forever!

17.) Do you see yourself getting married in the next 5 years? — No.
18.) Are you mostly a clean or messy person? — Messy, until I can’t stand it anymore and pull myself together and become very clean, until I spiral back down again, and start the whole thing over.
19.) Do you have a religion? — Yes, I am a Christian.
20.) If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go? — Great Britain!

24.) What’s your favourite song of all time? — Into the West – Annie Lennox & Howard Shore (Lord of the Rings – Return of the King soundtrack)
25.) What’s your favourite thing to do on a Saturday night? — Sleeeep… Just a pity that I don’t get to do it much, and would most likely actually be on the internet.
26.) What would be your dream job? — Philologist. No! A copy-editor/content author for a large gaming company like JaGex. No! A successful fantasy author.
27.) Ever wish you were born the opposite sex? If so, why? — Yes. When people judge me because I’m a girl, not because of my abilities.

39.) What memory would call up your personal Patronus spell? (in other words, what memory is your happiest or sweetest?): — In general, I don’t get much excited or that super-happy either, but hearing that I got 84th place out of 5000 in a writing competition definitely sent me into a euphoria.
40.) If I Ruled the World … — I’d get other people to do it for me. It’ll be less work for me (more time to read) and then I would not be morally guilty for all the bad things they would be bound to get up to.
41.) If you could have been born and grown up somewhere else, where would that have been? — Lothlorien! Okay, okay, let’s get real: Well, I suppose somewhere in Great Britain or the Netherlands, I suppose, even though I’ve never been there.
42.) If you could do one thing or grant one wish for someone else, what would it be? — Probably if someone I knew well was seriously ill, grant them health again. If they wanted it, of course.
43.) If you could punch any one person from any point in history, who would you pick? — Gavrilo Princip
44.) What fictional character do you most identify with and why? — Oh dear, that is difficult. Tiffany Aching, maybe? Even though she is miles younger than me!
45.) True or false: pineapple on pizza is wrong. — False. Om-nom-nom!
46.) Favourite book? — Lord of the Rings. And yes, it is a book. It is not a trilogy.
47.) If you had the choice to live in any fictional world, as in transposed into a book/movie, which one would it be? Please explain why.
Or: Paranor or Arborlon. Or: Hogwarts.
Or… the Discworld maybe?
(This could become a long list…)
48.) Movie adaptations of books – heinous, evil and always disappointing or perfectly acceptable? — That depends. The book is in general better than the movie, but there are exceptions.
49.) What is your biggest fear? — Do I have to say? It’s embarrassing! Okay, I suppose it’s getting cancer or Alzheimer’s or something like that.
50.) What is your philosophy/motto in life? — Hmm… don’t think I’ve ever really sat and thought one up. If I could copy one now (‘cause I’m lazy)… then it would probably be the Stoics’.
