Fluttering across cyberspace in mercurial Gemini butterfly mode (all the way to my blog!) is Shelley Wilson, author of How I Changed My Life In A Year, other motivational books and blog posts, and YA fantasy series The Guardians.... but is she a typical Gemini writer?
"I'm on the cusp, which means I’m not as quirky as I could have been!
I had a flashback when I read that I could be a ‘jack of all trades and master of none’, this is what my dad used to say to me! I could win awards for talking, and this was often highlighted in my old school reports, so I can tick off the chatty, communicative and sociable traits. I didn’t like school, but I loved college, and could happily be an eternal student, I guess that means I am inquisitive and keen to learn.
I’ve often heard that Geminis are unreliable, but I would disagree. I am one of those annoying people who arrive twenty minutes early for everything, and I can also be counted on in an emergency, such as if you’ve run out of chocolate. However, if you can’t keep me interested then it’s the demon realm for you – oh yes, I write fantasy, there is always a demon realm lurking; you need to be pretty imaginative to think up that stuff. I'm also open-minded when it comes to trying out new ways of doing things ~ so versatile, too! I would like to add loyalty to the list of Gemini traits, I am fiercely loyal when it comes to my family and friends (including my online buddies)."
★.:*´`*:.☆As one of Shelley's online buddies I can confirm the last bit, and add generous, cheerful, and also pretty damn perceptive, as illustrated by her motivational posts! You can take a look at her non-fiction books and the first of her fantasy series, Guardians of the Dead, on her Amazon UK page or on her blog, and follow her on Twitter.
And finally... does Shelley have anything in common with her fellow Gemini writers?
The late and much lamented Maeve Binchy...
... and the man with the hidden camera (or dagger!) in his pen, Ian Fleming...
