Today Pink Ink has the pleasure of welcoming HarperCollins author, Jennie Bohnet – we do love discovering authors’ deep and darkest secrets, so here we go….!!
- Never ask me for directions. I have a terrible problem in telling my right from my left and I have been known to send people in completely the wrong direction by telling them to take a right when really I meant left.
- I once played the Goldie Hawn part in the play Butterflies are Free for an am-dram production in Wales. I would love to have been an actress in real life.
- I love traditional jazz and swing. My step-father played for the big bands back in the 1940s and I love the music from that era.
- Although I love ‘all that jazz’ I can’t sing a note in tune to save my life – and I would so love to be able to sing! My family ration me to one verse of one Christmas carol on Christmas Eve, claiming that’s all they can stand!
- I love bookshops and one of the best jobs I’ve ever had was working for Christopher Robin in the one he owned in Devon.
- I love wandering around flea-markets, secondhand shops or here in France vide-greniers. Anywhere really where there is a bargain to be had.
Oh – here’s a bonus secret – I hate curry. That’s all!
