This weekend we have a interview with Writer and Editor Amelia du Plessis.
We asked her some interesting questions and she proves to be a interesting lady.

1.  Who is your favourite writer?

biographies and coffee table books.

3.  What do you love about Port Elizabeth?

Our beautiful beaches.

4.  Which is your favourite book?

Gosh, that's a tough one.  A Prayer for Owen Meany, if I'm forced to choose.

5.  Do you blog and if so how often?

I have a blog as part of my website, yes but I don't use it nearly as much as I should.  

6.  What does an editor do?

Makes other people's writing sound good.  

7.  What advice do you have for aspiring writers?

Be very thick-skinned and never submit something that you don't know is worth publishing.

Black.

9.  Where do you write?

In my study or in local coffee shops.  

10.  As a writer, how do you use social media?

I have a Facebook page on which I share useful articles that I've read, as well as news updates.
