Laura Williamson is a Canadian writer based in Central Otago and an amateur fisherwoman ... very amateur.

Have you ever ... snuck in without paying?

No, but I stole a 99-cent eyeliner from a pharmacy when I was 16 just for the rush. I still feel guilty. Thanks for bringing it up.

... gone in for a kiss and missed the mark?

Every time between the ages of 14 and 23. I’m a slow learner.

... spent more than three consecutive days in your PJs eating only cereal for dinner?

You’re not supposed to eat cereal for dinner?

... dropped the F bomb during an interview?

Three times. I got the job anyway.

... got a person in to fix it and told everyone you did it yourself?

I’m very good at DIY. But I did post a photo on Facebook of myself with a large trout I had nothing to do with catching. I didn’t say I caught it. But I didn’t say I didn’t either. Don’t believe everything you see on social media.

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

You can help us continue to bring you local news you can trust by becoming a supporter.
