Item(s) added to shopping bag.
We managed to grab the author of Sleigh Bells in the Snow, Sarah Morgan, for five minutes to talk Macbeth, gerberas and the potential existence of ghosts...
What coffee would you like?
Cappuccino please, really hot with chocolate on top and a teaspoon so I can poke at the foam.
And which cake can we get you?
What’s your earliest childhood memory?
A ballet class. I remember wearing pink tights.
What was your favourite lesson at school?
If you could invite 3 people, dead or alive, to a dinner party…
I’d invite the chef Jamie Oliver so he can cook the food, Queen Elizabeth and Richard Armitage.
What’s your favourite quote?
‘Come what come may, time and tide run through the roughest day.’ Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
Do you prefer sunrise or sunset?
The best thing that can happen to a person.
What achievement are you most proud of?
I asked my family this. My husband said it was marrying him, my kids said it was having them - I think it’s probably being a published author. It’s my dream and I feel very lucky to do this job.
Do you believe in ghosts?
I was going to say no, but then the lights went off as I was typing this and I decided maybe I do!
Who’s your favourite writer?
I find this a hard question. If I could only pick one I’d probably say Nora Roberts. I think she is a gifted storyteller and she’s also a lovely person!
If you could go back and do it all again, what would you change?
Nothing. I don’t think that way.
What’s your favourite flower?
Gerberas. They always make me smile.
Who would play you in a movie about your life?
The perfect man must have…
If he’s living with me then he’s going to need a sense of humour, patience and be calm and strong in a crisis (which will probably be of my making). Thanks to Sarah for answering our questions, look out for our new Coffee & Cake series each week as we get to know the author behind the pen!
