"Don't believe everything you think"

Name: UKKitty

The basics: I'm British, I'm female, and I have two children

My mild-mannered alter ego: I work in healthcare marketing.

My secret identity: when I fill out my fantasy CV in my head, then of course I'm really a writer. Well, aren't we all? And actually, having (just) had my first acceptance from a publisher, I guess I can now declare that I really am a writer. Who knew?

If you liked that: you can also find me over at fanfiction.net, where I am KittyUK. http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1541909/KittyUK

You may spot the influence of my children in my choice of fandoms. I'm just saying, is all.

Three special powers: I can get my whole fist in my mouth; I can recite "The Cat In The Hat" from memory; I can use the word "strategic" in a meeting and mean it. Okay, maybe the last one is more like a fatal flaw than a special power. Ho hum.

Three fatal flaws: 1) I can't work FaceBook (which, being honest, is something of a weakess in a marketeer). I did actually open an account once, and then found myself staring at a page which was almost blank apart from the sinister message; "You have no friends". I freaked out, closed the page down and haven't been back since.
2) On a similar note, I had to have MSN Messenger explained to me in a series of very patient emails from a very patient friend. I am still vague on the details.
3) I sleepwalk and sleeptalk. Apparently I have this really obnoxious, bolshy and paranoid alter ego who only comes out when I am asleep, so I am given to sleep-wandering around the house, shouting warnings about aliens, burglars and so on, and looking for stuff in cupboards. Attractive, no?

Stuff that inspires me: I adore writing to challenge ("Angels" came out of a request from two friends for a Christmas present, and almost all of my work comes out of idle conversations with people over a dinner-table or via email).

Brit-critter: I can't help it, sorry! In deference to the fact that most of my fanfiction readers seem to be based on the US side of the pond, I did try to write in American English for a while, but apparently I failed. So I've given up. I hereby formally apologise for all the knickers, wardrobes, bins, taps, nappies and extra letter "u"s in the middle of words.

If a bear and a crocodile got into a fight, who would win? If you've got any thoughts on this one, do please send me a message and let me know. You'll be contributing to an important world-wide discussion on the subject, I promise.

You'll never hear me say: I'm not writing that, it's too weird.
