BIO : Paige Nick hates spiders and cellulite and plastic forks. She loves Ice cream and unsuitable men and writing – Which is lucky because as an award-winning advertising copywriter (with clients like Allan Gray and Kulula.com), a weekly column in the Sunday Times and a building career as a novelist she has quite a bit of it to do. And the ice cream and the unsuitable men? well nobodys perfect
Paige can’t live without?…My sisters, writing, my girlfriends and my i-pad
Paige has in her handbag?…Far too much, it’s like a blimming attic in there. Seriously, a girl could throw her shoulder out!
Paige’s 3 wishes are?… World peace, an end to suffering and lots more people doing lots more reading. But if that’s a little over-ambitious side, I’d ask for a tad more sex than I’m currently getting, great health indefinitely, and lots more people doing lots more reading.
Secret/unusual talent Paige has?… I can bake. I mean really, I love it. Cooking, forget about it, I burn water, but baking, oh boy. I also like to knit. I think fortunately that’s cool these days.
Excuse Paige has used to get her out of trouble once?… Hmmm tough one. When I lost my cell phone at our crazy agency Christmas party I said I’d left it behind in my hotel room by mistake. But I’m pretty sure I dropped it in a bush and was too drunk to find it. Yup, I know.
Paige would love to meet?… Madiba, but it wouldn’t go well. I wouldn’t be able to stop crying long enough to actually be able to see him. That guy is somehow automatically connected to my tear ducts.
Paige’s favorite author is?… Jim Crace is my all-time favorite author crush. But I just finished Cutting for Stone by Abraham Varghese, and that was astonishing.
Paige’s idol is?… Sorry to be repetitive, but again it would have to be Madibs. What a legent, what a hero, what a guy.
Paige is working on? any new books?… I have something that I’m busy fiddling with in my mind, but I’m struggling to find balance right now to clear up enough time to actually sit down and write it. But I’m working on it
Inspires Paige?… There is so much inspiration out there, it’s crazy. What the hell did we do before the internet? Pinterest inspires me, and great authors inspire me, and crazy reality TV inspires me. Working in advertising constantly inspires me and travel inspires me. Even sleeping , I don’t know what the brain gets up to while we’re not there, but it’s pretty cool.
Ok seriously!! Paige is like the coolest lady ever! Such a sense of humour, an awesome writer, and even kind! Get this, her and her publicist kindly offered me a copy of each of her books to giveaway on my blog – so keep a close eye for the giveaway which will be coming shortly.
