Would You Rather... with Talli Roland

Chips, chocolate or cheese? 

Chips, chips, chips! Especially with added salt and vinegar. Yum. 

Bridget Jones, Becky Bloomwood or Carrie Bradshaw? 

Definitely Carrie Bradshaw. I love her quirky style and optimism. 

Wine, beer or vodka? 

Wine. I do like vodka, but it’s more of a party drink. I love relaxing in the evenings with a glass of red. 

Camping or spa vacation?

Spa vacation all the way. I loathe the discomfort of camping! Sleeping bags make me shudder.

Water or Mountains?

Water. I grew up by the ocean, and I love the sound of waves breaking on the shore.

Zombies or Vampires?

Vampires. Vampires have class, while zombies are disgustingly messy.

Dogs or Cats?

I love both, but cats are more independent than dogs and less needy, and that appeals. 

Coke or Pepsi?

Coke. I find it less sweet than Pepsi and it has a bit more bite.

Coffee or tea?

Ooh, it has to be coffee. When I need a strong hit of caffeine, it’s where I turn first.

Dine out or take away?

Definitely dine out! It’s hard to get out at night when you have a baby, and I’d relish glamming up and hitting the town.

High heels, sneakers or flip flops

Hmm. Can I say just ‘flats’? High heels make me curse, sneakers are for running, and flip flops on grimy London streets? I don’t think so. Flats are the perfect compromise: comfy yet still a little stylish. 

Physical book or ebook?

I like both, but I have to say ebook. I love being able to purchase a new novel from the bath. 

Paperback or Hardcover?

Paperback. Less cumbersome and much lighter!

Pen or Pencil?

Pen. The scratchiness of a pencil annoys me.

Mad Men, Downton Abbey or Breaking Bad

I’m sure this will mark me out as some kind of weirdo, but I haven’t seen any of them!

Drama or Comedy?

Comedy. There’s enough drama in my life already.

Twilight or Hunger Games? 

Hunger Games. I love strong heroines. 

Lipstick, lipgloss or chapstick? 

Lip-gloss all the way! Easy to put on and doesn’t clash with anything.

Facebook or Twitter

Facebook – I love having more than 140 characters!

Plot your entire novel or fly by the seat of your pants? 

I always plot, but I very rarely stick to it. 

The Pollyanna Plan

Is finding true love as easy as an attitude change?

Thirty-something Emma Beckett has always looked down on 'the glass is half full' optimists, believing it's better to be realistic than delusional. But when she loses her high-powered job and fiancĂ© in the same week, even Emma has difficulty keeping calm and carrying on.  

With her world spinning out of control and bolstered by a challenge from her best friend, Emma makes a radical decision. From here on in, she'll behave like Pollyanna: attempting to always see the upside, no matter how dire the situation.

Can adopting a positive attitude give Emma the courage to build a new life, or is finding the good in everything a very bad idea?
