Those lovely people over at Spillwords who’ve been kind enough to publish a few of my poems asked me to do a brief interview and, if you follow the link, you’ll be able to read assuming you’ve nothing better to do ;O)
Apparently, my link isn’t working so…..
- Where, do you hail from?
I am originally from Essex in the UK but I relocated to the Cote D’Azur just over three years ago as I felt the need to make a significant change in my life following the death of my husband.
- What is the greatest thing about the place you call home?
The fact that the only thing I can see from my apartment is the sea! Added to that we have around 300 days of sunshine a year here but we still have seasons so the landscape is constantly changing. I live about 30 minutes from Italy, the nearest ski resort is about an hour and a half away and I can lay on a beach or walk in the mountains on the same day if I want to – what’s not to love!
- What turns you on creatively?
I suppose the simplest answer is that I love words, what we can do with them and how they can make us feel. The fact that words can provoke extreme and complex emotions is an endless source of fascination for me. Other than that, I find that I am often inspired whilst taking a shower; I have no idea why.
- What is your favorite word, and can you use it in a poetic sentence?
Just one?! Wow that’s tricky! OK here goes:
The faceless behemoth that was the weight of his loss, finally came to rest beside him, still and silent.
- What is your pet peeve?
It’s probably not politically correct to say this but political correctness. Self-expression is something that’s very important to me and I feel as though it’s being stifled by the perpetually offended.
- What defines Lisa Keeble?
I guess I would define myself as ‘curious’ – I have spent most of my life asking ‘why’
