- Is wearing the crown heavy? No, no, Ma'am. I wasn't referring to the responsibility. Just the weight of the thing. Just how heavy is it? This gem came when Roherum was speaking to the Queen just after she opened a new library (this is how you can tell I write fantasy incidentally! No prizes for guessing what I think of library closures)...
- Is it difficult being a dwarf? I guess there has to be a height qualification to ensure quality... The dwarves couldn't believe this either when Roherum speculated on this during a mini series looking at the best and worst of each magical grouping in the Fairy Kingdom.
- Dragons? Who'd have them? What Roherum forgot was the answer to this is "nobody" but in a magical realm, where dragons live happily and in abundance, there isn't a choice on this. (The weatherman, Roherum's rival for the top presenting job, lives in hope that the goblin will actually ask a dragon this one day and get "fired" for it).
Roherum, my goblin presenter "hero" of Fairy News Network, is legendary for what he comes up with on air. He believes he has the perfect interview technique and is not afraid to ask tough questions. Some of his more memorable moments are:-
I'm Allison Symes and I write novels, short stories as well as some scripts and poems. I love setting my work in my magical world, the Fairy Kingdom, and my favourite character is Eileen, who believes hypocrisy is something that happens to other people without caring that statement is hypocritical in itself! Eileen is huge fun to write for and about.
