Funday Friday - Truth or Lie? - Special Edition with Lizzie Fayke (plus giveaway)

Welcome to the latest edition of Truth of Lie. My name is Rachel and I will be your host, for this exciting new game show. Each Friday, I will have one contestant, and they will be answering at least 14 questions. There is of course one small twist...

For three of the answers, they have to lie. It is your task as the viewer to guess which three answers are lies. You are allowed 3 guesses and I want them posted into the comments field. 

This is almost certainly going to be the last week of Truth or Lie, definitely for 2016, possibly ever. And to celebrate / commiserate this fact, I have a one off special edition for you all. 

So long as you take part and have a guess today, then you will be entered into a special giveaway provided by today's contestant. For more info take a look at the end! 

So without further ado, let's meet today's contestant. 

Good morning contestant, please can you tell me your name and a little bit about yourself?

Hi, I’m Lizzie and I’ve been making stuff up for ages. I spent all my school years writing plays and making my friends perform them and after a few false starts I’m now writing books. 
My first book, Daydream Believer, is available through Amazon and the sequel is coming along nicely. I can’t wait to get it finished as I have great plans for a new series of books after that.

Please to meet you Lizzie, I am really looking forward to reading Daydream Believer when I get the chance. 

Now onto the show, and remember everyone, Lizzie hasn't been entirely truthful with three of these answers, so it is up to you to guess which ones they are (only 3 guesses per person though). 

1) Tell me about any really memorable dream or nightmare you have had

I remember sleeping in my parents’ bed while my Dad was away on business. I dreamt I was being chased around a breakfast cereal factory by a monster with a Cornflake packet for a body, he was making the most terrifying noises. I woke up to realise the noises in my dream were my mum snoring.

2) What was your most memorable holiday ever?

This would have to be my Honeymoon to Aruba. It was also my first trip to the Caribbean and it did not disappoint. We stayed at Bucuti Beach Resort and it has to be one of my favourite places of Earth. We are currently saving for our 3rd trip back.

3) If you could be a fruit, what would you be and why?

An Etrog. Not because it’s bitter and lumpy looking, but because it’s highly valued, respected, expensive and largely inedible. Well, I don’t want just anyone eating me….

4) What superpower would you love to have?

Time Travel. I love history and would love to see it first-hand. My first port of call would be the 1920s, then I’d go and give my younger self a talking to.

5) What is your dream job, and have you tried to achieve it?

As a kid I wanted to be an Archaeologist, imagine trying to spell that in Year 1! The working conditions would not suit me though so, of course, I’d have to say an Author, and yes….I’m still trying.

6) Can you describe for me what your perfect day would involve?

Waking up late in a fluffy hotel bed followed by a spa trip to make myself beautiful. Afternoon tea in Claridge’s and some shopping, this would include a handbag purchase. I’d then go back to the spa for a swim and to read a book. Theatre and dinner out followed by watching the TV in bed while eating chocolate and drinking tea. All in the company of Tom Burke!

7) If you could choose anybody famous to star in the story of your life, who would it be?

Penelope Cruz, she is beautiful and funny - although the accent could be a stumbling block.

8) Besides reading, which I am guessing is a given, what other hobbies do you have?

I collect swizzle sticks (cocktail stirrers), the kind you get in fancy hotels and cocktail bars. My favourite is the one I have from the Long Bar, Raffles in Singapore. 

9) What is your best childhood memory?

Getting a Mr Slushy for Christmas and making all my relatives drink disgusting frozen drinks all day, I charged 10p a cup.

10) Did you have an invisible friend as a child? If so please tell me about them. 

I had a little elephant friend who used to sit on the swing in the back garden with me.

11) What would your ideal pet be?

A bulldog. I’d like 3 and I’d call them Pip, Squeak and Wilfred. Unfortunately, I’m allergic to most animals. 

12) What is your guilty pleasure when it comes to music? 

When I was writing Daydream Believer I used to listen to Dolly Parton to help me with one of the characters and I must admit I became rather fond of her.

13) Can you let us in on an embarrassing secret?

I was in a Goth band called Poison Spite. I wrote the songs and ‘played’ keyboards. 

14) What are you most scared of?

Fish – I hate them alive or dead. I’ve had hypnotherapy, it didn’t work 100% but at least I can glance at them from a distance now.

Thank you so much Lizzie for these great answers, in just over 6 months I think you are the only person who would like be an etrog!
