In my quest of getting my old intray into a sembalance of order I've unearthed several old LJ interviews that I never completed. So here's the first in a short series....

1. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
To be honest I really enjoy living in London (UK) the vast majority of the time. You can find anything you could want over here (even good weather sometimes if you’re patient!), pretty much every band will make London a stop on their tour so we get great live music, the city is the most multi-cultural on the planet and its great having such a diverse mix of peoples and cultures to interact with, and I’m lucky enough to have plenty of friends who live over here too! The downside is that
If I had to choose somewhere other than
2. What's your dream job and why?
Some would say that I have a ‘dream job’. I’ve worked in an industry I dreamt about ever since leaving school. On the face of it being a ‘Games Store Manager’ may not sound all that glamorous but through working at the store I’ve managed to travel to the States and Germany on a regular basis, meet loads of really nice people (fans and industry folk alike), see some of my own writing in print and now finally start polishing things off to become a publisher myself. I guess my ‘dream job’ at the moment would be getting the publishing business properly off the ground and successful. Both within the games industry and in the wider licensing/multimedia entertainment industry.
If I couldn’t work in games then I’d like to either work in international politics (preferably the UN) or the music industry as a talent scout. Whilst still trying to be a novelist in my free time!!! :p
3. Who's your favorite director?
That’s a tricky one. I generally go by films regardless of who’s acting in or directing them. I guess three directors who I’ll always go and see their films are Tim Burton, David Lynch and Jean-Pierre Jeunet. You could actually throw Quentin Tarantino in there too but that’s more by default of the type of films he usually makes more than the diversity in his skills as a director!
4. What's your favorite movie?
A single favourite!?!? Are you *mad*???? I couldn’t choose my favourite film of all time. There are just so many to choose from that mean so many different things to me. I could probably list 50 of them! I really don’t think I’ll be able to answer this one, sorry L
5. If you could spend an day with any person, living, dead
or fictional, who would it be and why?
Delphine Decaens. Because she is one of the most talented, amusing, intelligent and friendly people I have ever had the grace to meet in my life. I don’t get to see her very often (maybe once or twice a year) so she’d be at the top of my list.
