I’m slowly introducing you all to our panel of Hysteria 2012 Short Story and Poetry Competition Judges. I’ve asked them all the same six questions and there are some surprising answers. Our fourth judge is … Claire Boggs and here she tells you a little more about herself.Tell me one thing no-one knows about you.
If I tell you then everyone will know, ha ha!
What do you enjoy reading the most and why?
I enjoy reading Horse Racing thrillers and Tess Gerritsen books as they keep me guessing and interested all the way through.
If there was one book or piece of writing you wish you had written what would it be?
I wish I’d written a bestseller, any bestseller.
What prompted you to volunteer to be a judge in Hysteria 2012?
I wanted to be a judge as I’ve walked in these ladies shoes and am recovering still. I am interested to hear other ladies stories.
Have you written a book or a poem? If so what is the title and where can we find it (if it’s available to buy)?
Only piece of writing I have written is my thesis on Feline Heart Disease and is available I believe at The University of Glamorgan’s Library.
If there was a film of your life who would play you and why?
I would like Marilyn Monroe to play me as she too suffered with Endometriosis so would know my pain.
If you’d like to connect with Claire, you can find her on Facebook in a group called Hysterectomy Sisters UK at: http://www.facebook.com/groups/246875145393537/
