#Friday Happy Author Hour! Share a drink with your favorite #Authors! #HappyHour #writing Today with Raven McAllan @RavenMcAllan

 Whether you're an author or not, you've heard it before: All authors drink. 

But what do they drink? 

You don't like Gin & Tonic? That's because you haven't tried Raven McAllan's special recipe. Have a look and enjoy!
Such a boring favorite drink, but NOT the way I make it
Tonic used to contain quinine, which was helps to stave off Malaria. Lime juice helped to ward off malaria, and gin is well… just gin. N i c e …
Drank in the sunshine, preferably by a beach or river,  watching the world go by, what better way to celebrate living?

About Raven:

Well what can I say?

I'm growing old disgracefully and loving it.

Dh and I live on the edge of a Scottish forest, and rattle around in a house much too big for us.
Our kids have grown up and flown the nest, but roll back up when they want to take a deep breath and smell the daisies so to speak. 

I write in my study, which overlooks the garden and the lane. I'm often seen procrastinating, by checking out the wild life, looking—only looking—at the ironing basket and assuring tourists that indeed, I'm not the bed and breakfast. That would mean cooking fried eggs without breaking the yolks, and disturbing the dust bunnies as they procreate under the beds. Not to be thought of.
Being able to do what I love, and knowing people get pleasure from my writing is fantastic. Long may it last.
