Who Am I ?
IMOGEN LLOYD WEBBER
1: Who am I?
A British girl trying to take a big bite out of the Big Apple and having a lot of fun in the process!
2: What do you do and what project are you currently working on?
I’m an on-air contributor for MSNBC and also a writer. My last book, about being single, has been optioned and I’m currently juggling adapting it into a screenplay with appearing on screen as a political pundit. I’m also writing a novel with a girlfriend of mine in London, which has a very unique take.
3: Where are you from and where are you going?
I’m from London and going to wherever my American dream leads me.
4: Who is your biggest hero?
Margaret Thatcher. She was in power while I was a child so I always knew anything was possible for a woman.
5: What book is your bible?
Is it bad to say mine?! My Single Girl’s Survival Guide. I researched it by interviewing the single women I most admire on both sides of the Pond. It’s not about finding a man, but finding yourself–all with a lot of British humour thrown in.
6: What are some things you love? And some things you hate?
Love: Life, family, friends, America, NYC, Green & Black’s dark chocolate, and I never met an eyeliner I didn’t like.
Hate: Snow, bad grammar, American spelling.
7: What is your raison d’être?
To ensure I say “if only” as little as possible.
8: What is your favorite color?
9: Who is your favorite comic book superhero?
10: What is your favorite NYC hot spot?
Wherever I haven’t been yet and where I don’t bump into someone I’ve already met. I moved to the New World to experience the new!
11: What turns you on?
12: What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?
What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given? My Grandmother told me you can sleep in your armchair when you’re old.
