My favorite color is … royal purple. I have a colander in this color and it makes everything look appetizing when it’s sitting in it: apples, broccoli, even potatoes. There’s just something so warming and appealing about it.

My favorite place to read is … probably in bed, for ultimate comfort. Though I also like sitting in the leather swivel chair in the bay in my bedroom and being able to look out at the garden every now and again, especially if it’s a sunny day.

My favorite snack is … cheese and grapes on oat cakes. Delicious and filling!

My favorite type of music is … difficult to define. I have quite eclectic tastes. I listen to a mixture of electronic, alternative, rock, pop and classical music. If you want a taste of the sorts of songs I listen to while I’m writing you can find them listed by book on my website here: https://christymckellen.com/soundtracks-to-my-books/

My favorite hot beverage is … tea! I’m a tea addict—though I only tend to drink English Breakfast, and gallons of it. My local café where I sometimes write has a lovely chai tea though, so occasionally I have that if I’m feeling adventurous.

My favorite type of flower is … the cornflower. Ever since I saw the film adaptation of A Room with a View I’ve loved them. I had them threaded into my hair on my wedding day.

My favorite time of day is … late in the evening when I get to chat and laugh with my husband whilst listening to music. These hours are getting shorter and shorter now the kids are getting older though!

My favorite candy is … fizzy cola bottles. I always get some from the pick n’ mix stand when I go to the cinema. 

My favorite hobby is … walking. I know that probably sounds a bit dull, but I often have brilliant ideas while I’m stomping about in the fresh air. I’ve recently joined a voice-positive choir too, which is great fun as well as being sociable (something I definitely appreciate as a mostly cloistered-at-home writer!)

My favorite place to vacation is … wherever my family are. Though I do particularly love it if there’s sunshine. We’ve taken the kids to France a few times, which is always fun, and last year we had a great time in Cape Verdi. I can recommend it for a totally relaxing beach and hotel break for the whole family.
