Like most writers, I've got hundreds of books. I keep giving them away and then buying more so they never really go down. I read most things, I still love reading children's stories, my favourite at the moment is The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman and The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. And I love adult suspense stories such as Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and Before I Go To Sleep by S.J.Watson.
Nibbling a bar of chocolate whilst reading a book has got to be the best thing ever. I love all sorts of chocolate, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate but I think my favourite is chocolate covered marzipan.
I love to have lots of colourful flowers in the garden. Now Winter's coming the garden might be pretty bare but I can still have flowers in the house. Orchids are my favourite. I've got eight orchids so far, here's a picture of one of them.
Playing my CDs while I work always cheers me up in the Winter. So out will come my Sixties collection, the Beatles, Abba and my old time favourite Loretta Lynn. I'll turn up the volume and hum away as I write.
There's lots more pictures of my favourite things on my Pinterest board.
What about you? What are your favourite things?
