As defined by me, the author . . .
I thought it would be fun to share the 5 questions I wish interviewers would ask…because they’d be so easy to answer. Yep, sometimes, you just want easy. LOL
1. What did you have for dinner last night?
You notice I did not ask what we planned for dinner tonight, because that? Is a hard question. But in fact, it took me a few seconds to remember what we ate last night because my brain was flying along the African Savannah. Oh, did I mention my current WIP (Close Quarters) is set in Zimbabwe? Anyway, dinner last night…oh, right grilled steak (yes, Hubcap is so macho he grills in the middle of winter).
2. How many children do you have?
Oh…hmm…okay, not so easy. Three, but we have two Koren young men that lived with us for three years we consider our sons, though they have wonderful family back in South Korea.
3. What’s your favorite color?
Yellow, for everything but what I wear. It makes me look like my liver is failing. Sigh…but I love the color of sunshine.
4. Who is the last author you read?
See how this is not the favorite author question, because the answer to that one is too long. Last author I read? Josh Lanyon. Current top of my TBR pile is Christine Feehan. There, two answers for the price of one.
How many pairs of socks do you have?
Oh, wait, that’s a hard one…it’s almost as bad as asking how many pens are on my desk.
What color are the walls in your office?
Yellow. Okay, so maybe that was cheating, but easy, see?
LOL, sometimes my brain just doesn’t want to think.
So, wanna know the hardest interview questions to answer?
Who is your favorite character from one of your books?
This is like asking which of my children is my favorite. I’m not stupid, if I say the wrong one I’m going to end up with baking soda in my chamomile tea. Okay, maybe not that drastic, but seriously, how could I possibly choose?
Second only to, which book is your personal favorite?
I do have favorites from time to time, but I love all my stories and picking a favorite makes me feel like I have to say I love one more than the others and what does that say about the other story? Paranoid, much? Maybe a little.
Can you dance the Mamba?
Sadly, no. Wich I could. I do love that show, “Dancy Your A$$ Off,” though. Which is really surprising considering how much I don’t like reality TV.
So, what are your favorite questions to ask authors? Here’s my one time offer to answer them, no matter what they may be.
Hugs and happy reading,
