Guilty Pleasures Interview with Tanith Davenport

Guilty Pleasures with Tanith Davenport

What fast food item do you adore?
I have a weakness for pizza. In the past I’d have said Chinese food, but I’ve found a lot of fast food places don’t do it properly any more.

Fuzzy or tube socks?
Fuzzy. Nearly all my socks are standard black ones so if I have a preference, it’d be for some warmth and comfort.

Chocolate or vanilla ice cream?
Definitely chocolate. I have never been a vanilla person.

Dogs or cats?
Cats. I do love dogs, but my two cats would never allow one in the house. I’m lucky they even let me in.

Pen and paper to write or a computer?
Computer. I do my planning on paper and then type it up properly.

Ereader or paper back?
In the past I would have said paperback, but I’ve got very attached to my Kindle. It’s addictive.

Bubble bath or shower?
Shower – I can’t wash my hair in a bath and it’s long enough that it will always get wet!

Chick flicks or action movies?
Action movies, although my favourite genre is actually horror. You can’t beat a good horror film – I just wish there were more good ones out there.

Hot dogs or hamburgers?
Hamburgers, although when I was in New York I did develop a fondness for their chilli dogs.

Cowboy boots or sneakers?
Cowboy boots. Boots are sexier.

Flats or stiletto shoes?
Flats. I have a back condition which means I can’t wear heels.

Boxers or briefs on a man?
Boxers. I don’t know why, but I find briefs a little unmasculine.

Beard or clean shaven man?
Clean shaven. I can’t stand being prickled.
Favourite place to vacation?
My husband and I have a favourite resort in Majorca that we go to almost every year. That said, I would love to go back to the Amalfi coast. We visited it a few years ago and it was breathtaking.
Favourite drink from the bar?
It would have to be a Mojito. I can’t resist them.
Favourite article of clothing?
I’m a great fan of coats. Right now I have a long black coat with raised leaf and flower embroidery which I got on holiday in New York. It makes everything look good.
Favourite time of day?
I’m a morning person. That said, now that it’s winter I do love to wrap up in a snuggli and stare at the stars in the evening.
Favourite season?
Probably winter. I’m the Christmas fairy in our house. We have a German Christmas market in town which symbolizes everything I love about it – dark nights lit with fairy lights, mulled wine and gifts for everyone.
Favourite television show?
Right now, “Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files”. Since I started researching for my paranormal novella I’ve become fascinated with the subject.
Favourite movie you’ve watched more than once?
“Heavenly Creatures”. Nothing else comes close.
Favourite actor?
Female – either Sara Paxton or Katharine Isabelle. Male – Johnny Depp. There aren’t many actors you can always rely on to do a good job so when I find one, I watch them in everything.
Favourite song you listen to over and over again?
“Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen. It’s a long-standing favourite – it’s so happy.
Favourite candy your sweet-tooth craves?
I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, but I do love violet creams.
What books might we find on your bedside table?
Right now I’m reading “Frankenstein” and “Tarzan of the Apes”, but I also keep a copy of “Royal Blood” by Bertram Fields near my bed. I’m fascinated by the Princes in the Tower.
What would your first thought be if you won a lottery?
“I can write full time!”
