Ahead of my forthcoming flash fiction piece, The art of something out of nothing, to be published next month, the editor of Pure Slush has posted my author profile on the website. I also completed a questionnaire, which all the writers who contribute to Pure Slush provide, giving a little insight into who they are.

Turquoise... The colour of my soul

Turquoise… The colour of my soul

The questionnaire asks about the writer’s favourite colour and why. What does a person’s favourite colour say about them? My favourite colour has been turquoise since my pre-teens. But only recently did I discover that it has an alter-ego in the form of teal, or aquamarine. If I like turquoise, but worry that it might seem too showy, and downgrade to teal, only to fret that teal is a bit frumpy, finally settling on aquamarine before pondering whether this might suggest I like the notion of chemically polluted water, what does this say about my personality? Probably that I’m neurotic. Psycho-analysts, have your pens at the ready…more so when my actual story appears in the May issue of Pure Slush!
