Simon is as cool as a cucumber in a day spa. He silently leans back against the wall and start tapping his fingers on his knees. There is a happy little jig playing in his mind, but for the life of me I cannot tell what it is. To get me out of my frazzled state, I decide to break the silence.
"So, Simon. Besides hiding from the mob, what else do you do for fun?"
"Romantic walks on our local Jurassic coastline where we often collect awesome fossils to decorate our beach garden. That and beachcombing for driftwood and unusual-shaped pebbles, crystals whatever interesting things we can rummage for. A glass or two or three of red wine helps me relax in the evenings."

"Pht! I know what that is like! Good thing we are getting out today," I try not to think about work.
Read the Answers and then guess the question:
Answer: A while ago, when toying with the idea of setting up a website to showcase some screenplays that I’d done, I typed in JamesRoss.com (my real name) and discovered the domain name was already taken… by an author! Further investigation led me to find another two James Ross’ who put pen to paper, so an anagram of my name (and a borrowed N) had to do.
What was the question? Why did you decide on a pen name like Jams N Roses?
What was the question? What do you do when you have writer's block?
What was the question? If you could meet any person in the world, who would that be?

Before I give you his lifestory, here's a little chat we had online before he finished Luna Sangius that I think you should read:

**My Facebook inbox "pinged" and there was a message from Simon. I smiled and excitedly opened it.**
Hi Little Yeti!
Hiya Phantom Bigfoot. How are you doing?
I'm doing great Natasha, but over busy now. I'm a moderator on GR and Indie Author Site. Just had my vamprom edited by a pro and was given WOW status so am busy getting a cover done and am going to self pub it. It's in Latin and has that creepy feel to it- Part 1 is Luna Sanguis and part 2 is Luna Aeturnus working on part 2 now for edit.
Lucy: Hahahaha, you would like to know that, now wouldn't you? Erm, I mean. Yoga and baking stuff. Walking the dog and climbing. I would love to be able to wield a chainsaw.
At this point all I could think of was this tiny woman flinging a massive chainsaw around. It was equally scary and hilarious.
Me: What is sexy to you?
Lucy: A man who's a bit rough around the edges. A lumberjack for example.
Yikes! I hate their clothes and scruffy beards...Oh wait! I was thinking of Duck Dynasty...nevermind...
Me: Why did you write this book?
Lucy: I just sat down and it kind of wrote itself. :-)
Yes it happens people! moving on...
Raymond radiated a smile and stated: “My only fun is when I’m playing with my Granddaughters and my mind reminds me when I was their age. The difference was that my play fun was growing up during WW II and there wasn’t much fresh air to breathe. It is also fun when my Granddaughters are arguing about the school subjects as I hit back on them with my life experiences. But mind you, that one girl is in primary school and the other one in high school, and they are both heading as pure academics for their future.”
Natasha responded: “I know you are a devoted husband to a very ill wife and a great father. It’s rare that you get a grandfather so involved in his granddaughter’s lives. I know you even take them to school!”
Raymond just smiled
Raymond looked very concerned and then said: “Firstly I wish that the world avoid the wars. I do hate corruption, crime, drugs, bad politicians and all the rest that is bad to our society. Democracy is losing the string from original implementation and I wonder if the world will be converting to a total and good Democracy.”
Natasha retorted: “Good luck with that one!” as she giggled and then gave a snort Miss Piggy would be proud of.
Before Raymond could respond, Natasha interrupted him...
