What are four things you can’t live without?
What is your favorite television show?
‘Normal service will be resumed as soon a possible’. In the meantime, a selection of pleasant music is played.
If you could be any character, from any literary work, who would you choose to be? Why?
‘The ghost of Christmas’ past’ (‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens). When he appears, the memories he awakens bring happiness and good feelings to those he visits. I see the ghost as taking Love, Light and Laughter with him wherever he goes.
What have you got coming soon for us to look out for?
Written words on my web page wobblycharles.com, they will be either Wise, Witty or Woeful, maybe the trifecta, who knows?
What books or authors have most influenced your own writing?
The way I write is due to my education in Engineering. It was mainly tertiary; therefore, content was more important than context. Seventeen years as a Patents Examiner writing legal reports did not add to my skill in writing for a non-technical readership. Therefore, every book, and every author, I have ever read during my lifetime has influenced the way I write.
