Also, as an Environmental Scientist, working in factories or on roofs, usually in the rain measuring pollution, I always found time to let my imagination drift. Later, as a Stay At Home Dad, stories became a real part of my job, leading to my debut - about the end of chocolate - to be published. Now I have lots of fun visiting schools and libraries talking about my book and chocolate.

And who knew that actors were actually supposed to be multi-lingual, play seven instruments and be trained in a variety of circus skills?

One way or another, Elektra's life is now spent waiting for the phone to ring - waiting for callback.
Can an average girl-next-door like Elektra really make it in the world of luvvies and starlets? Geek Girl meets Fame meets New Girl in this brilliantly funny new series!

On the upside I do like teenagers. Actually I like quite a lot of people. I've done loads of acting mostly just school plays but a tiny bit of professional too and although I'm nothing like Elektra I feel her pain because her most humiliating moments are strangely similar to mine. Actually she has it easy not only was my first kiss on stage but it was in front of my parents and my headteacher. So naturally I decided to write about it so all you guys can mercilessly take the piss out of me too. Deborah Carr. Highest bidder: Rebecca Baudains.
