If you were a box of cereal what would you be and why: I would be one of those really unhealthy ones that are filled with chocolate, because cereal is terrible and at least the chocolate ones are making an effort. 

What did you want to be when you grew up: I was open minded and had many career prospects. Anything cool that I read in a book (elf warrior, sassy princess, high school student) or saw in a movie or on TV (Princess Leia, first female doctor in the 1800's American West, Broadway star) was given due consideration.

Where are you right now: In my office in Buccleuch Place, which is possibly haunted.

Tell us something about another staff writer:  Alice is some kind of multi-national superheroine.
