Lorraine’s questions for me

01 – What’s your favourite genre of books and movies? Are they the same?

My favourite genre of books is definitely fantasy with sci-fi a close second.  For movies, I also love fantasy but I also love action and mystery and sci-fi and thriller and awful…awful creature feature movies (like Toxic Shark).

02 – If you could have a superpower, what would it be?

Probably the ability to control other people… not for anything nefarious, but just to like keep dithery people out of my way at the grocery store.

Like to just give them that mental nudge to, you know, move away from the area I want to be in… because they seem to just BE there to chat and not to select items and some of these people seem incapable of hearing you when you politely ask them to move.

And it would save me from ramming them with my shopping trolley.

Or maybe Pyromancy… but that would be for nefarious purposes! *evil cackle*

03 – What was the last book you read?

The last book I read was as a beta-reader and it was The Silver Ninja: A Bitter Winter by my friend Wilmar Luna.

He is working through his newest edits, but Wilmar is another writer you should keep an eye on.

04 – What do you like to do for fun?

Anything from shooting arrows at targets, to watching really bad movies, to star-gazing, to looking for cute bat pictures on Pinterest.

I have a swathe of hobbies and interest that snap for my attention and I pin-ball between them all like an ADHD toddler who’s eaten too many pixie-sticks.

05 – If you could date a character, who would it be and why?

If we are talking a character from a book, it would have to be Reyes Alexander Farrow from the Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones.  😀  Because he is always hot and I get cold a lot, so you know, good match ;p

My Questions to my nominees

  1. Which book, if any, can you read over and over again?
  2. If you got teleported into a novel, which novel would you want to end up in?
  3. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
  4. Do you like octopi?
  5. If you were stuck on a rollercoaster for an hour, would you want to be stuck on one that goes up and down or round and round?


You don’t have to be nominated to answer these questions, I’d be interested in EVERYONE’s answer to these 😀

Also, do check out the links of all the blogs mentioned in this post.  They are all awesome and the people that run them are just as awesome.  Check them out.  Now.  DO IT!

  2. Love your answers. Thank you for nominating me, I’ll have to think those questions, love the rollercoaster one 🙂 I’ll get this post done but might be a bit slow, I’m away for a few weeks and am behind with posting.

  3. Book to read over and over again:
    I am going to cheat, using a trilogy as my answer.
    Neal Stephenson’s ‘The Baroque Cycle’.{‘Quicksilver’, ‘The Confusion’, and ‘The System of the World’}
    ~Icky. 🙂
