What, When, Where, Why and How with Yvonne Eve Walus

Give a hearty welcome to Yvonne Even Walus!

What would you prefer: a tornado or an earthquake?

Hmmm. I've already been through a small earthquake: I woke up one night in a hotel room and saw the big wooden wardrobe move. It was fascinating and I wanted my husband to see it too, but I fell asleep before I could call out his name or nudge him. I've never had a tornado. So I think I'll stick to small earthquakes.

When would you kill your own food?

Only if I had no other choice.

Where would you spend your vacation?

Oh, so many places, so little money! But if cost and time were no object I'd go for:
a Greek island, like Naxos Japan when it's in cherry blossom mode or a luxurious ocean liner cruise.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

Let me quote greater writers here:

Mark Twain: The news of its crossing has been greatly exaggerated.
Ernest Hemingway: To die. In the rain.
Douglas Adams: Forty-two.
Chaucer: So priketh hem nature in hir corages.
Wordsworth: To wander lonely as a cloud.

How many tattoos is "too many"?

One. Particularly if it's on my child.

Yvonne Eve Walus (also writing as Eve Summers) composed her first poem when she was 4 and her first short story when she was 9. She made up fictional situations in her head and played them out as far back as she can remember. Her first publishing success (a short story in a local magazine) came when she was 22. Yvonne has lived on three continents and her work reflects the wealth of her cultural background. Her crime fiction is published in USA and in Britain, and it includes “Murder @ Work” which is set in the tumultuous and exotic South Africa. Please visit Yvonne on http://yewalus.kiwiwebhost.net.nz/ or South Africa in her “Murder @ Work” and discover what life is like when you are prohibited by the law to own a house or have medical insurance. Yvonne’s books are available on Amazon and Fictionwise.
