Would You Rather with Lucy Robinson

Please welcome Lucy Robinson, author of A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger

About Lucy:

The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me - out July 31st 2014 - will be Lucy Robinson’s third book and follows on from the tremendous success of The Greatest Love Story of All Time and A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger. 

Prior to writing Lucy earned her crust in theatre production and then factual television, working on documentaries for all of the UK’s major broadcasters. Her writing career began when she started a dating blog for Marie Claire about her fairly pathetic attempts at Internet dating.

Lucy was brought up in Gloucestershire surrounded by various stupid animals. She studied at Birmingham University and lived in London for many years before disappearing off to South America to write her first two novels.

Would You Rather... with Lucy Robinson

Chips, chocolate or cheese? 

But . . . But . . . But I want all of them! Can't I? Please?

Bridget Jones, Becky Bloomwood or Carrie Bradshaw? 

I have a nasty penchant for singing Celine Dion songs when I'm alone. So, sadly, Bridget. 

Wine, beer or vodka? 

Wine, of course. In a huge and fabulous glass that makes me feel really cultured and worldly.

Camping or spa vacation?

Camping - I love the outdoors - but I'll probably check in for a spa day afterwards if that's ok. 

Water or Mountains?

Mountains. They are humbling and beautiful. 

Zombies or Vampires?

I think vampires, because The Count from Sesame Street was a vampire and he is the greatest invention of all time.

Dogs or Cats?

DOGS! There is nothing and nobody on earth who can make me laugh quite like a dog. They are so ridiculous and happy and hilarious. 

Coke or Pepsi?

Well of course I only drink herbal tea and filtered water . . .  Oh go on then. Coke. 

Coffee or tea?

I like a big cup of steamed milk that tastes vaguely of coffee. With a slice of cake please. 

Dine out or take away?

Dine out. As a writer I do a lot of dining in alone, particularly at lunchtime. It's surprisingly exciting to get out for lunch with girlfriends.

High heels, sneakers or flip flops

I recently moved to a very hilly city in the UK (Bristol) where the wearing of heels would lead to serious injury. So I'm all about sneakers now. 

Physical book or ebook?

Physical. I love the portability of an eBook but nothing beats the smell and feel - not to mention the sight - of a beautiful book. 

Paperback or Hardcover?

Paperback. My handbag is quite heavy enough thank you.   

Pen or Pencil?

Pen. A really old-fashioned fountain pen with cartridges full of thick velvety ink. Lovely.

Mad Men, Downton Abbey or Breaking Bad

Mad Men I think. The clothes the girls wear make me feel weak with longing. Why don't we dress like that any more?

Drama or Comedy?


Twilight or Hunger Games? 

Oh no . . . I've never seen either. Can we still be friends . . ?

Lipstick, lipgloss or chapstick? 

Currently, lipstick. It's a sort of candy pink. But I tend to rotate between the three. 

Facebook or Twitter

Facebook. I'm incapable of saying anything in 160 characters. 

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

The more I write, the more I've had to accept that it does need planning. When I don't plan it all goes wrong and I go a bit mad.

A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger

Charley Lambert has put considerable effort into achieving a perfect life. She has The Job. The Wardrobe. And The Flat. Her womanising, junk food-loving housemate Sam lowers the tone a bit but that aside, things are peachy. Then she breaks her leg in three places, watches her unrequited love propose to someone else and - worst of all - is forced to hand over her job to her nasty deputy while she recovers. Workaholic Charley fears that she will soon go mad. Desperate for something to do, she discovers her talent for helping the lovelorn online. And then William arrives in her inbox. Within hours of his first email, her world starts to change. Helpless, she watches herself fall in love with this man and begins to realise that she's not who she thought she was. But will she be brave enough to turn her back on her old life - all for a total stranger?
