My Favourite Things by Chris Phillipou, Author & Blogger




Food  Savoury and sweet:
Ice cream or Nutella or maybe both? Is that wrong? And savoury? What’s that???

Drink:
Hot chocolate without the trimmings – yum yum.

Film:
The Usual Suspects – complex, well-acted, and so so so good. Plus, there’s always something that comes to light with every re-watch.

Book:
Hard question. There’s a few… The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas and Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn definitely feature in my top 5.

Author:
Agatha Christie – love my classics.

Character:
Sherlock Holmes or Bosch (Michael Connelly) – I love my dysfunctional detectives.

Song:
Runaway Train by Soul Asylum

Holiday destination:
Greece, of course! Although Cuba and Brazil are pretty amazing too…


Animal:
Siberian tiger – rare and beautiful.

Place to write:
Anywhere with relative quiet (emphasis on the relative)!

Season:
Summer – I like my sunshine.

Inspirational quote:
Just do it

Thing in the whole world:
Life J

Christina has three passports to go with her three children, but is not a spy. Lost in Static is her first novel.

Lost in Static 


Sometimes growing up is seeing someone else's side of the story.
Four stories. One truth. Whom do you believe? 

Callum has a family secret. Yasmine wants to know it. Juliette thinks nobody knows hers. All Ruby wants is to reinvent herself. 

They are brought together by circumstance, torn apart by misunderstanding. As new relationships are forged and confidences are broken, each person's version of events is coloured by their background, beliefs and prejudices. And so the ingredients are in place for a year shaped by lust, betrayal, and violence... 

Lost in Static is the gripping debut from author Christina Philippou. Whom will you trust?
