A little insight!

A little about me.
  Born and raised in Scotland, I started off life in a caravan near Penicuik, then moved around for a considerable amount from home to home. I have lived numerous places and settled in the highlands for my high school life, moving back to central Scotland as I hit my Twenties. I was raised in a really big, laid back family with a mix of half siblings, full and step. Yep, I have an excessive amount of siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family and a family story that makes Eastenders pale in comparison. Last time I checked, I was one of 15 brothers and sisters... some half, some step... some reprobates. Out of all of them, my mum says I'm the black sheep and the family rottweiler because I am the feisty one. Although the start of my journey was less than happy, a traumatic childhood which still fuels many a good story and a bit of a disrupted life until I was around 9. I studied in college as a beautician, masseusse, and makeup artist and have had many odd professions, adding up to quite a long CV. This ranges from photo lab technician, 192 operator, Exotic animal charity director, singer, model, Dispatch manager for a huge seat cover company, designer, and many, many more. I was a restless employee who got bored in non-creative roles.

My personality

  Wacky and awfully quirky. I grew up with an ugly girls personality, the strong belief that it would be better to be loveable than beautiful and it's never really changed. I'm loud and impulsive, I can be the life and soul of the party and fun loving, but I can also be incredibly boring and grumpy. I am known as the wise one, the friend everyone needs and always calm and wise in a crisis. I have a childishness that never goes away but I am also very strict and like calm surroundings and organised rules. Most people find me really easy to talk too, easy to get along with and love that I am a very honest open person who won't mince her words, even if you disagree. I have interests in anything that goes against the norm, I like to be my own person in everything. I am very outspoken and opinionated, not one to be pushed into a mould or held down by my gender. Impulsive and random.
My ambitions.
  This has to be my biggest asset and yet my biggest flaw too, I am very impulsive and when I make a decision that I want something, I will just go for it. I do not care about the right process or qualifications, I have an insane ability to blag things I want and a bit of fearlessness. In the past this led to being a singer in two bands, getting offered a job in tv, running my own business and running an animal charity. It's now why I have ended up as a writer and doing it my own way! I have this undying need to find a fulfilling role beyond being a mother and wife and I think I will not rest until I succeed in some way. Writing has been my passion since youth so I hope it's where I belong.
Book and movie preferences.

  Books - I like romance, comedy romance and occasionally erotica novels. I have a wide amount of authors I like, and I love books to have a good length to them. I only like quick reads when my schedule is hectic, otherwise, I find them a disappointment. I do not like long-winded, over intelligent or smutty books that give you brain ache instead of relaxing you.
  Movies : Much like my choice in books, although I am a sucker for action too, I love marvel movies, star wars and star trek. Yes, I am a secret geek but that's okay as geeks became cool by the time I hit my twenties. Not a huge fan of weird or paranormal although I suffer them for my lover's sake. I have been a huge Hobbit and Lord of the rings fan since childhood and rate them among my favourite books and movies now.

My Goals!

  I aim to take over the world. It has always been my plan . Okay so maybe not really but I do aim to leave my mark on it in some small ways so in years to come I will be remembered.
