…but not before I use the opportunity to shine a bright light into the eyes of an unsuspecting reader, and uncover the truth!
Today we’re grilling genre blending fiction author… Elizabeth M Hurst. Or Liz Hurst. Take your pick.
Let’s get straight into it.
Liz, tell us one fact – one truth – that most people don’t know about you.
I have six tattoos and two piercings, none of which can be seen when I dress normally.
Saucy! If that doesn’t keep my blog-visitors reading, nothing will! So anyway, in my novel, all Will’s ever wanted in life is to be an actor. What is, or was, your greatest ambition?
I have a deep-seated desire to visit another planet. This probably won’t be possible in my lifetime, but I do feel we need to keep exploring space and maybe, in the not too distant future, we will start exploring more.
Will makes a living pretending to be people he isn’t – have you ever pretended to be someone or something you’re not? Why?
This is really difficult actually, because I am such a lousy liar that I’m not sure I could ever get away with pretending to be someone else. For the same reason, I never play poker for money!
Reading this in an email? If there’s a gap below that’s where a video would normally appear. Jump over to youtube to watch it.
Will finds himself in a situation where he has to be two of his characters … at the same meeting! But most people have been in the situation where they’ve been expected to be in two different places at the same time, or to carry out two tasks simultaneously. Have you ever been in a similar situation? What?
I once double-booked myself on two different first dates which was… Stressful! I liked both guys and didn’t really want to cancel either, on the basis that I may well lose that opportunity for good. So, I did what any sane woman does: I went to both!
I turned up deliberately early for the first and sent a apologetic text to the second, asking if we could meet up an hour later.
Luckily, the first guy wasn’t really what I was looking for so I managed to leave early enough to make the second date. However, by the time I arrived I was somewhat flustered, and so not relaxed enough to enjoy my time with guy number two, which must have been obvious because in the end I went home alone and ended up with neither.
The moral of this story is: don’t do it!
Without giving too much away… did you have a favourite scene (in TTATCM)? Which one?
The climax, in the restaurant, is my favourite part. In the movie version, Zorba the Greek should be playing in the background while the characters are dashing around. Hilarious!
Who would you like to see in a movie of THE TRUTH ABOUT THIS CHARMING MAN?
Will = Alex Hassell (left)
Rachel = Katie Holmes (right)
Zlata = Keira Knightley (above) – I’d love to see her smoking and eating junk food!
What are you working on right now?
The second novel in the Lost Souls series is my current Work In Progress. It features some of the same characters as Siren Spirit, but there’s a new mystery to solve, another haunting and a tricky emotional crisis to overcome. I’ve done much more historical.
