Funday Friday - Truth or Lie? - Camilla Isley - Month 4 Week 4

Welcome to the latest edition of Truth of Lie. My name is Rachel and I will be your host, for this exciting new game show. Each Friday, I will have one contestant, and they will be answering at least 14 questions. There is of course one small twist...

For three of the answers, they have to lie. It is your task as the viewer to guess which three answers are lies. You are allowed 3 guesses and I want them posted into the comments field. 

Every 4 weeks, I will close the guessing, count up how many correct answers each of you has, and create a leaderboard. Anyone who is top of the leaderboard, will go into a draw for a paperback of the winners choice (open internationally). 

Please do include a way for me to contact you (email or twitter or similar), so that I can let you know if you have won. 

The weekend after a 4 week period closes, not only will I produce a leaderboard, and announce a winner, I will also let you know into the true answers, and which were the lies.  

Closing date for the fourth month is 11pm on 1st September 2016. 

So without further ado, let's meet today's contestant. 

Good morning contestant, please can you tell me your name and a little bit about yourself?

Hi, I’m Camilla and I’m a Bookaholic. My passion for writing came directly from my passion for reading. I love to write books that are sweet and romantic, and that will leave readers with a dreamy smile (sometimes also some LOL moments) on their faces. 

Please to meet you Camilla, I hope you will have fun today! 

Now onto the show, and remember everyone, Camilla hasn't been entirely truthful with three of these answers, so it is up to you to guess which ones they are (only 3 guesses per person though). 

1) Who is your favourite author?

J.K. Rowling. She created a magical world, made us speak a new language (muggles, squib, Azkaban, animagi, snitch, Quidditch …) they even had to put a 9 and ¾ platform at King Cross station. Harry Potter is my favourite series.

2) What book do you wish you had written?

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë. This is one of my favourite classics. I love everything about it, the story, the struggle, the characters. Heathcliff had me fascinated since I was a teenager. I re-read this book at least once a year.

3) What was your most memorable holiday ever?

The island of Santorini in Greece. The island is beautiful, the Mediterranean Sea special, and everything just aligned to perfection during this vacation. Perfect hotel, perfect weather, and great food.

4) Please name a cocktail that would describe you perfectly, and what’s in it?

Lemon drop martini. It has Vodka, Triple Sec, lemon juice and sugar. I like to think of it as sweet (sugar rim) and sour (lemon twist). Just like everyone else I suppose, I have sweets moments and bitchy ones.

5) If you could only read one author for the rest of your life (and I’m aware that’s a very scary world), who would you choose and why?

I’m going to have to go back to answer number one and say J.K. Rowling. I never tire to re-read a Harry Potter book, and they’re definitely the most re-read in my library. Whenever I’m in a reading slump I go back to Harry Potter. I just re-started the whole series with the excuse that The Cursed Child is coming out this summer. I mean, I have to re-read the other seven books first, right?

6) If you could only look at one view for the rest of eternity, what or where would you like to be to see this view?

I would like it to be a view of Central Park from my condo huge terrace. (Even if I suppose I would have to win the lottery first to achieve that)
But if I really had to be stuck in one place for the rest of my life I’d like it to be New York. It’s such a vibrant, lively city. I’d love to be there for eternity.

7) Besides reading, which I am guessing is a given, what other hobbies do you have?

My biggest passion besides reading and writing is running, I’m currently training for my first half-marathon. My dream is to one day run (and finish) the New York marathon.

8) Who is your ideal Disney character?

Belle, because she’s a book junkie.

9) If you could be an animal what would you be and why?

I would like to be my cat. My biggest problems would be I’m over-cuddled and meowing for more food.

10) Can you describe for me what your perfect day would involve?

Get up at 11.
Head to Starbucks for a croissant and a Caramel Macchiato.
Kneading a pizza dough for later in the day.
Write 5000 words.
Prepare the Pizza.
Have a homemade pizza dinner with the hubby.

11) If you won the lottery, how would you spend the money?

I’d buy a house, go on a cruise around the world, give huge presents to my family and friends, give to charity, and I would open a cat shelter…

12) What superpower would you love to have?

Magic tiding finger snap. Imagine snapping your fingers and the House cleaning and tiding itself.

13) What is your guilty pleasure when it comes to music?

Listening to Pitch Perfect 1 and 2 soundtracks.

14) What is your best childhood memory?

When my cat gave birth to four kittens. I had a whole cat family. Dad, mom, and kittens. Those were three glorious months, two cats and four kittens all for me… it was a dream

Thanks so much for agreeing to take part Camilla, I also love Belle from Beauty and the Beast, and I'm so envious you got to go to Santorini, it looks so pretty in the pictures. 

I hope you have enjoyed this edition of Truth or Lie? I will be back next week with another episode, and in the mean time...
Don't forget to guess the lies, to be in with a chance of a prize!

Hi! I’m a writer of romantic comedy, cat’s lover, coffee addict, and shoes hoarder.
Besides writing, I love reading (surprise, surprise), cooking—and eating—especially pasta, going to the movies and obviously ordering a gigantic bowl of popcorn, and watching too much bad TV.
I understand that mosquitoes play a role in the ecosystem as a part of other animals’ diet, and I don’t want to starve all those frog princes out there, but I could really live without them!
