Lyla Diggle nee Michaels
Audrey Marie Anderson
Lyla’s not in many episodes, although she has a strong tie to John Diggle, the two are currently on their second marriage to each other, and are the parents to Sara. It’s something small that I really like about Lyla. I hadn’t really paid much attention to her, in the handful of appearances she had throughout the first and second seasons, until the finale.
She was clearly courageous, as shown in the episode featuring Captain Boomerang, but it was made crystal clear in that episode.
Hanging out of the door of a helicopter, she uses a rocket launcher, to blow up a bunch of Mirakuru soldiers in the clock tower, in one of the most memorable moments of that season.
I like the fact that the writers and Anderson have made her into a more morally ambiguous character than most of the other women allied with Team Arrow. She can see things in a slightly less black and white way than her husband, more in line with Oliver’s perspective.
I'm a thirty something woman who lives in the north of England. I have been a writer for as long as I can remember, creating stories both written and verbal since childhood. While studying at Edge Hill College, I got several poems published by a small publisher in the USA, and in Europe. I have been part of several writing groups, and done quite a few courses in a attempt to hone my writing skills further. I love reading different genres of fiction, knowing that the best way to develop my own writing, and my vocabulary is by exposing myself to the different ways that other people choose to describe things.
The most recent writing course that I've been part of, run by a published author, included a exercise in which we were challenged to read things that we would never usually even look at.
It inspired me to take up a challenge. Namely to attempt to read at least one book by every author which is stocked in my local library. I soon realised that I was being far too ambitious, especially given the fact that every library rotates their stock too often for me to keep track.
I've decided to instead attempt to read a book every day, starting with a author whose surname begins with A, and ending with a author whose surname begins with Z. It doesn't matter what the topic of the book is, or if it's fiction or non fiction, everything is useful for me at the minute.
