4) Announcing the Winner of the Meet the Author Quiz

Congratulations to the winner of our Meet the Author Quiz who is Guy Portman. He has won a signed print copy of SLUR (http://viewbook.at/Slur) together with signed print copies of my other publications, Kids’ Clubs and Organizations: viewBook.at/KidsClubs and  Great Places for Kids’ Parties: viewBook.at/KidsParties  plus a £10 gift voucher. We’ll be sending our bundle of prizes out in the post.


If you weren’t the lucky winner, don’t forget that you can still buy a print or Kindle version of SLUR at: http://viewbook.at/Slur and can download a free app that enables you to read the Kindle version on your computer, tablet or smart phone here. In fact, you’ll need a version of SLUR to be in with a chance of winning a £50 gift voucher and signed print copies of all my books in our SLUR Big Prize Quiz at the end of today.

The Answers

In case you’re wondering what the answers were, here they are:

  1. My ears.
  2. My shoe – it slipped off whilst I was boarding the train.
  3. Once in manual, then I gave up because I absolutely hated it. I returned to learning to drive years later but automatic only and sat my test a further three times, so four times altogether. Driving is most definitely not my favourite thing.
  4. Three – first year, third year and fourth year juniors.
  5. I don’t have a middle name.
  6. Diane Mannion Writing Services.
  7. It was about my late mother. It was back in August 2013 when I hadn’t had my WordPress blog long – here’s the link: https://dianewriting.wordpress.com/2013/08/01/why-i-dont-write-poetry-anymore/.
  8. A 20 year old boy and a 17 year old girl.
  9. Spain.
  10. Manchester.

  1. Congratulations to Guy! And I am so impressed that the National Rail staff would delay a train to recover a shoe stuck on the track, for a lovely lady. That shows they realize how important shoes are for us women… 🙂

    • Thanks for your comment Martina. Oh but the shoe incident was so embarrassing – it’s stayed with me ever since. Imagine a train full of passengers peering out of the window to see what the delay was whilst I was on the platform balanced on one foot with a red face! It literally slipped off my foot as I was stepping onto the train so I had to step back off and shout for the guard.

    • Thanks for the comment Georgia. Yes, my ears are so small that when I had my hair cropped at school (back in the day when it was fashionable), I earned the nickname ‘pixie head’, haha! Nowadays, I keep my hair shoulder length.
