This weeks question is: Name 3 authors that you would love to sit down and spend an hour or a meal with just talking about either their books or get advice on writing from?
This is a pretty tough question. I would love to sit down with ANY published author and be able to pick their brain so being able to choose is a bit of a treat. OK, here goes:
1. Jane Austen. Jane (if I could call her that, and I assume I can because I've wrestled her from beyond the grave) is one of the most amazing writers I have ever read. Her stories are timeless and her characters unforgettable. I'm sure that just being in her presence would give me inspiration. Talent by osmosis if you will.
2. Isobelle Carmody. I'm not sure if I can use this as a harassment session and ask/plead with her to finish the next book in the Obernewtyn series. I love them so much. I've been waiting 10 years for closure and it's not surprising that I've gone a bit nuts in the meantime.
3. Suzanne Collins. I am a little (lot!) Hunger Games Trilogy crazy right now, so the thought of being able to meet Suzanne Collins is sending me into a frenzy. What would I grill her about? WHAT HAPPENED TO GALE?????
