Interview – Tracie Podger
Obsessed by Books

1.     What are your pet peeves or interesting things about you that you dislike?

Pet peeves? Mmm, I don’t like intolerant people. I especially don’t like when someone (usually the hubby) cuts fresh bread wonky!

2.     Name one of your favourite things about someone in your family.

My hubby is a funny guy, he can always make me laugh. Except today, today he annoyed me.

3.     If you had to describe yourself using three words, it would be…

Random, loyal, generous

4.     If you were to create a slogan for your life, what would it be? (Example: Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow, we all die.)

One life – live it.

5.     If you could visit any place in the world, where would you choose to go and why?

Bora Bora and the Cook Islands are on my wish list. I love to scuba dive and both those destinations offer some of the worlds best diving.

6.     Which body part would you choose to get a tattoo done?

I have a tattoo on my stomach and one on my back. I’d like the stomach one covered with something that snakes around my waist and creeps up my back.

7.     What's the one thing, you can't live without?

My heart, that would make life a little tricky ;) Seriously, my family. They annoy the life out of me sometimes but we are very close and they are very supportive.

8.     What's your motto in life?

As above, One Life – Live It. We spend a lot of time worrying about things we cannot change that we forget to live sometimes. We’re a long time dead.

9.     Sitting alone in a big field, looking at stars, what do you think/feel?

Free. The universe is infinite, and so should our dreams and hopes.

10.  If you had the opportunity to live one year of your life over again, which year would you choose?

Oh, God. I don’t think I would. Whatever I’ve already done has shaped me to be the person I am now. I don’t believe in going backwards, only striving to moving forwards.

11.  Tell us something nobody knows about you

I’m a pretty open book, but…I have a fear of being buried/cremated alive so I want my heart removed to ensure I’m dead!

12.  Listener or talker?

Both. I do have a habit of talking over people sometimes, it’s usually because I’ve just remembered something or I’m excited about what ever it was that popped into my mind.

13.  What are you afraid of?

Dying a painful death, mainly. That was a bit macabre, wasn’t it? On a lighter note, spiders. I don’t do spiders very well.

14.  Where do you live?

Kent, UK. Although I’m on the move soon.

15.  Do you do dance crazy when no one is looking?

Maybe when I was twenty years younger, but the old knees don’t allow for that nowadays.

16.  What's your favourite love story? (movie or book)

My own ;) I have such a short memory that I can tell you the plot, but not remember the name of the characters, actors, or the title!

17.  What is the best thing you have done in your life?

Write a book! Being an author has opened my world to new friends and experiences I would have never had the chance to before.

18.  Have you ever had the feeling you were being watched?

Yes! And when I checked there was a man standing outside my window with a shotgun! True story, that.

19.  Favourite place to eat?

Life’s A Beach on Summerleaze Beach in Bude. I love it that much I made sure to feature it in one of my books.

20.  Name one funny trait you have that you would like others to know.

I twitch my nose, often when I’m anxious.

21.  What does your room look like?

Which one? My kitchen is a little messy right now. I work from the dining table, which currently has the laptop, phone, notes, glasses, a mug of tea, folders, bank card (must remember to put that away), and a pencil sharpener on it.

22.  Share one funniest, one silliest and one wackiest status you have put up on a social networking site.

I can’t share it on here but Rebecca Sherwin, my nephew, and I played Bean Boozle recently. We videoed ourselves, it wasn’t a pleasant experience at all!

23.  What is your favourite quote?

‘Life is not about the destination, but the journey.’

24.  What is the craziest thing you've done lately?

Sell my house and have nowhere to live!

25.  Once, just to attract attention, I...

Shaved my hair off.

26.  If you could be invisible for a day, what would you do?

Break into the lottery HQ and see if it’s fixed!

27.  Have you ever gone cow-tipping?

I have no idea what that even is.

28.  If you could have been told one thing that you weren't told when you were a teenager, what would you like to have heard?

My parents had the attitude that, as a very independent and strong willed person, I was to make my own mistakes in life. That’s not to say there was no guidance, of course. I can’t think of anything to be honest. Boring, I know! Maybe I’d have liked to have been told not to date a certain individual but I doubt I would have taken any notice.

29.  You have multiple personalities, describe some of them.

Mrs Angry, she get’s seriously riled at injustice.
Mrs Fighter, now she’s interesting. She’ll fight until she has no breath left for a cause that’s worthy.

We fell silent, looking at the view below. He lifted his hand and moved some hair from my shoulder exposing my neck. Lowering his head, he placed a small kiss on the side. His eyes met mine in the reflection of the glass; there was a question in them.
I should have been outraged but I wasn’t, I just felt an immediate attraction to him. A fire raged in the pit of my stomach, my heart missed a beat, fluttering in my chest, and I felt my legs start to shake. I wanted to lean back into him, to feel his body against mine. All the time I faced the glass wall with him behind me watching his reflection.
“I want you, Brooke,” he softly said.
I couldn’t answer; I felt entranced and all rational thought left my brain, leaving nothing but an overwhelming desire for him. I gently nodded my head.
He unzipped my dress and it fell, crumpled to my feet leaving me standing in just my underwear and shoes. I stepped out of the dress and wanted to turn to face him but he held my hips, keeping me still. With one hand he ran his fingers up my spine sending shivers through my body. His hands travelled over my shoulders and down my arms, holding them to my waist while his lips trailed a path from my neck to my ear. I wanted to reach up, to run my hand through his hair, and to touch him, but all the time he held me still.
A small moan escaped my lips and I felt him smile at my response. A burn started between my legs, my body was aching with desire for him. One arm circled my waist and with the other he ran his fingers down my throat, over the top of my breasts and down my stomach.
“Do you know what I want to do, Brooke? I want to watch you come and then I want to fuck you.”
