Today I am very pleased to welcome T.M. Logan to the site, doing my quick fire quiz! His book Lies is out in eBook now and is released May 4th (MY BIRTHDAY!!!) in paperback! Make sure you pick up a copy, because it’s a fantastic read!
Tea, coffee or hot chocolate?
Physical books or eBooks?
Physical books. I do love the feel of a physical book and have only just recently got a Kindle.
Cat or dog?
Cat! I have two cats (Matilda and Maisy) and they would be very put out if I answered this any other way. Also my son would leave home if we got a dog.
Action flick or rom com?
White or milk chocolate?
Milk chocolate (but I eat more dark)
New York or Los Angeles?
New York. LA is great, but the traffic would drive me nuts.
City or country?
Bath or shower?
Writing by hand or typing?
Typing. I take lots of notes on post-its, postcards, and random scraps of paper. Years of journalism mean I’m fine with typing and shorthand but not so good with writing at length by hand. My handwriting is terrible!
Samsung or iPhone?
Summer or winter?
Summer. I’m a Leo – I need to bask in the sun.
Pizza or Chinese takeaway?
X Factor or Strictly?
Can I cheat here and say Britain’s Got Talent? I could watch David Walliams all day long. He is brilliant. But if I had to choose, I’d say X Factor.
Twitter or Facebook?
Favourite Friends character?
Chandler. He has all the best lines.
Favourite holiday destination?
This is a tough one. I have a lot of favourites. I love Stephen King, Michael Connelly, Bernard Cornwell, Gillian Flynn, Lee Child, Tana French, Harlan Coben, Linwood Barclay, lots of others. A Simple Plan by Scott Smith also sticks in my memory – I remember reading it on the bus on the way to the office, then getting in trouble for reading it under my desk while pretending to work – because I had to find out what happened next. And thinking that I’d like to write a book that would grab people in the same way (and maybe get them in trouble too).
Favourite Netflix series (can be any show on Netflix)?
Breaking Bad. Brilliant story, characters and acting.
Favourite part about being a writer?
Getting lost in the story. When you’re in the scene with your characters, living every moment of the story, bringing them to life, and then you look up at the clock and you realise that hours have gone by. I love that – there’s nothing quite like it.
Favourite holiday (Christmas, Easter, Halloween)?
