Jo-Simpson-2Q. Which other EAFOL 2016 participant are you most excited about?

I love meeting interesting people and there are so many fantastic authors on the programme, it would be very difficult to pick just one. I am looking forward to existing connections being strengthened and new ones being created. I love the randomness and magic of just meeting people and seeing what happens next!

Q. Which book(s) are you reading now?

The Surrender Experiment – Michael Singer. It’s an amazing book that is feeding my soul and quite possibly explains my answer to the above question – I love surrendering to life and seeing what happens 😉

Q. Which literary character would you invite to dinner? And why?

Alice in Wonderland – she had so much fun and lots of magical happenings. I would want to know all about her adventures and get curious about the many metaphors that are depicted in the fairytale. Besides, I am just a big kid at heart 😉

Q. There have been some interesting additions to the dictionary over the years. Which word would you remove?

War – if removing a word from the dictionary meant it would no longer be able to happen in reality, I would remove war and put an extra dose of love in its place.

Q. Who would write/ illustrate the story of your life?

Elizabeth Gilbert – I love her style, her humour and the way she looks at the world. She see’s truth and writes about it in a fun no-nonsense way. I have just finished Big Magic and she kept me engrossed on every page.
