This week, the fabulous Rochelle Wisoff-Fields has invited me over to her blog for an interview. Indeed, this is a great honour, as Rochelle is a super-talented author, whose novels I love. She’s also the facilitator (otherwise known as The Queen, the Bus Driver and the Cat Herder) of the ever-popular Friday Fictioneers, where bloggers are given a photo prompt to write a 100-word story.

Rochelle Wisoff-Fields-Addicted to Purple


It’s my great pleasure to start the year off by interviewing Friday Fictioneers regular, Sarah Potter who lives in a house on a hill, with panoramic views over the English Channel in SE England. Sharing the house are her husband, son and chocolate Labrador, all three of whom are great supporters of her literary endeavours. When not writing novels, she pens haiku and tanka poems, takes nature photographs, grapples with bindweed and snails in the garden, invents recipes, and sings mezzo-soprano.

What made you decide to be a writer?

My love affair with writing fiction and poetry blossomed at the age of eight. I could read before I went to school, which gave me a head-start with vocabulary.

Author: Sarah Potter Writes

Sarah is a British eccentric who writes offbeat fiction, haiku and tanka poetry. When stuck for words, she sketches or paints instead. She's into nature conservation, sustainability, gardening, dogs, natural health, and reading. Her sociability is something that happens in short bursts with long breathing spaces in between.

  2. Dear Rochelle,

    That would be good, although I wouldn’t want them coming to my actual door. The internet door will do! Having said that, my neighbour has bought both of my books, even though he doesn’t normally read novels. I thought this very supportive of him and most touching.

    All best wishes

    1. Thank you, Billy. So sweet of you to say so πŸ™‚ By the way, by some coincidence of timing, a few minutes ago, I just started writing my poetry guest post for you. My brain is a bit slow, so it might not be finished today, but at least I’ve made a start!

    1. Thank you, Carla. You are so kind πŸ™‚ Today, I’m not feeling creative and have wasted the morning looking at shoes on the internet, so now I want to kick myself (no apologies for the pun). It’s not as if I bought anything. Just a sign that I need to get on with my next writing project, fast, before my brain turns to sludge.
