Would You Rather... with Cathy Bramley

Chips, chocolate or cheese? 

Chocolate please.  At around three o’clock in the afternoon usually! 

Bridget Jones, Becky Bloomwood or Carrie Bradshaw? 

BRIDGET JONES! This is one of my all-time favourite chick-lit books. I have it on my kindle and re-read it regularly.

Wine, beer or vodka? 

Chilled white wine. Sauvignon blanc, preferably. Although I do adore Cherry-flavoured vodka which I discovered on a trip to Poland last year and now I keep a bottle in the freezer!

Camping or spa vacation?

Oh crumbs! Spa every time. The thought of camping gives me nightmares.

Water or Mountains?

Water I think. Mountains are lovely, but there is something so soothing about being next to the sea. 


Zombies or Vampires?

Do you know what? I couldn’t care less about either of them. I really don’t get fantasy or sci-fi at all. Give me a gritty crime or a lovely love story any day!

Dogs or Cats?

We had two lovely cats called Beano and Dennis, they were brothers from the same litter and we adored them. They are no longer with us sadly, but now that I work from home we have a dog and she is great company. So I’ll say dog, but really I love them all.

Coke or Pepsi?

Lemonade – with bits in. Yum.

Coffee or tea?

Cappuccino with an extra shot and cinnamon sprinkles

Dine out or take away?

Dine out. I spend all day at home!

High heels, sneakers or flip flops

I am quite short so really need high heels, but the reality is that I spend most of my time in slippers! I have around five pairs of flip flops and have just bought a new pair with the American flag on them… I’m not answering the question very well, am I? Let’s just say NOT sneakers.

Physical book or ebook?

Physical book because I always refer back to passages that I enjoyed and it’s hard to find those in an ereader.

Paperback or Hardcover?

Paperback. I don’t see the point of hardcovers and besides, I often fall asleep reading in bed and don’t like dropping a hardback on my face!

Pen or Pencil?

Pen. I have thousands. Although there never seems to be one that works when I need one urgently!


Mad Men, Downton Abbey or Breaking Bad

Blushes* I’ve only seen one episode of Downton Abbey and none of the other two shows. I don’t watch much TV. So, er… Downton Abbey.

Twilight or Hunger Games? 

I haven’t read either of these series but my daughters both loved Hunger Games. I’ve seen the Hunger Games movie and enjoyed that, Twilight is not my thing, I’m afraid.

Lipstick, lipgloss or chapstick? 

Lipstick

Facebook or Twitter

Personally, I prefer Twitter, it seems to be more instant and user-friendly. 


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

Plot, plot, plot! I plot each chapter before I start, but then of course, change it as I go along!


Conditional Love


Meet Sophie Stone, a thirty-something serial procrastinator. Tesco knickers, Take That and tea with two sugars is about as exciting as it gets. Sophie’s life is safe and predictable, which is just the way she likes it, thank you very much.

But when her boyfriend dumps her on Valentine’s Day and a mysterious benefactor leaves her an inheritance, Sophie has to accept that change is afoot. There is a catch: in order to inherit, Sophie must agree to meet the father she has never seen.
With interference from an evil boss, bickering flat mates, warring parents and a sexy ex-boyfriend, Sophie has plenty to contend with without an architect who puts his foot in it every time he opens his mouth.

She will have to face the past and learn some uncomfortable home truths before she can finally build a future on her own terms.
