Hmmm...now do I step lightly to the spotlight or shimmy on up to the microphone and murmur in that gravel-over-velvet voice of mine, 'Hello...'?

Ah, the lights are up, you can see my eyes appraise you and a nonchalent smile play on my lips.

I'm a sweet tempestuous redhead with a certain penchant for books, music, films, chocolate, skittles (but not the orange ones - I hate all things fake orange), Leicester City FC, dancing, rain, birdsong, gin and tonic. What else? I wanted to be Judy Garland when I was eight years old. My darling brother says I'm more like Anjelica though; no, not Huston, she of Rugrats fame (but then he would say that as I'm his big sister). There's an angel there somewhere though as I've oft said before, 'If I were angelic, I'd tread oh so softly...' Still with me? Maybe it's Lullabel Starfish crooning to the anemones.

Oh, and I love writing, adore wandering in my heart and mind. And I'm still searching for my long-lost friend from the beach...
