Jen: Today we welcome Kera Faire to Romancing the Book. Kera, will you share a short bio with us?
Kera: I live in Scotland, the land of haggis (okay) men in kilts (yes please) whisky—no E (if I must) and Midges (help, why oh why?), with my long suffering husband. He’s now used to ignoring the dust bunies and passing the wine. Our children are grown up and live away, so it’s us, the odd lost tourist, who thinks our lane is the road to Glasgow, and an assortment of wildlife who demand peanuts and bird seeds.
I got the writing bug at 7 or 8, when, for two years running, I won the national ‘where does chocolate come from’ competition held by a well known chocolate company. The prize was chocolate. I was hooked, but it was over fifty years before I actually did anything about it and became published—just before I was eligible for my bus pass. I still reward myself with chocolate.
I have two ‘personas’ Raven McAllan and Kera Faire. I find once I put which specific ‘hat’ on I’m ready to write their stories.
