1. I have a major sweet tooth. I love desserts, especially chocolate, and my favourite special occasion treat is a sugary Canadian creation called a Nanaimo bar!
2. Like many readers, I am a big tea drinker. My favourites tend to be flavoured black teas, like rhubarb cream, or blackcurrant, but I’ll drink most teas with one exception – I’m with V.E. Schwab and come down firmly on the anti-Earl Grey side of the great tea twitter debate!
3. I don’t have a green thumb at all, in fact I’ve even killed a cactus before, but I do love flowers. My favourites are pansies, because they’re so bright and cheerful and bloom early in the season so they’re a splash of colour after a dull winter, and poinsettias, because I associate them with Christmas, my favourite holiday.
4. I’m a big supporter of my local library (Toronto Public Library) and tend to get most of my reads from there. It definitely helps that I live in a big city with one of the world’s busiest library systems though.
5. My favourite city is London, England. I’ve been three times so far and I absolutely love the history, culture, architecture, and atmosphere of the city. I really like Toronto and my country and I don’t think I would want to live anywhere else permanently, but if I could live anywhere in the world for a year, it would be London.
6. I took singing lessons, first in a group musical theatre class, and then in private voice lessons all through high school, but I gave it up when I went to university and I regret not continuing.
7. My favourite plays of all-time are Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest (the muffins scene makes me laugh every single time), and Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. But recently I really enjoyed Of Human Bondage and I loved the book and film versions of Twelve Angry Men and hope to see a production of it one day.
