Spotlight On Writers
- Where, do you hail from?
Second generation Scot, but English - born and bred in Coventry.
- What is the greatest thing about the place you call home?
Being surrounded by family.
- What turns you on creatively?
Looking for the magical in the mundane; everyone has the capacity to greatness. All of my writing addresses itself toward that spirit and asks for no explanation other than the fact that we are human. DNA may explain many human traits inherited to us via our parents but hopefully it will never explain the inner paradox that makes us capable of actions we would never normally consider – that surely is the essence of drama.
- What is your favorite word, and can you use it in a poetic sentence?
It’s actually a Noun – Loxley – a small village near Warwick.
I wrote a verse on Loxley
I used the hand that mocks me
- What is your pet peeve?
Not trying and giving up.
- What defines Ricky Hawthorne?
That which can’t be defined.
