Well it’s the first Tuesday of the month again! Let’s welcome October by welcoming Ms. Megan Hart to the blog! (It’s fitting because she’s got this new zombie serial out as well – you should check it out!) She chose to do an author interview. [Not?] Surprisingly, she’s not that chatty. Very succinct – which works for her often gritty writing.
So without further ado, the questions! Oh, but today? I barged my way in and added commentary. Guess I’m feeling especially bratty. :X Sorry for muscling in on your interview, Ms. Hart!
Putting your writing/author skills to the test… 😉 how does one “drop it like it’s hot”? Can you do that move?I believe one drops it like it’s hot by squatting suddenly on the dance floor without falling over, then getting back up in a smooth, graceful move. Um. Can I do it? I can try… (I’m just impressed someone finally knows what “drop it like it’s hot” is. For all that it’s such a common phrase, so few people know!)
Would you rather be a unicorn, fairy, or a pirate? PIRATE! (I’m realizing I forgot to add the all important why here…)
What’s your favorite vegetable? Least favorite? How do you like it prepared? Hmm. Broccoli is my favorite, in any preparation. Lima beans would be my least favorite, especially in succotash. Succotash is the devil’s concoction.
How’d you come up with your author name? And “tagline’? My parents gave me my name. The tagline, “read in bed” just sort of happened, I wish I could tell you exactly how. But anything I said would be a lie, since I don’t remember.
What was your favorite book as a child? I loved Trixie Belden, Nancy Drew, all the Wizard of Oz stories. Anne of Green Gables. (I’ve never heard of Trixie Belden! But I love all the rest. Love.)
Do you eat marshmallows straight out of the bag, hold them at the edge of the fire till they’re lightly golden brown, or torch ‘em till they’re black and crackly on the outside? I do eat them out of the bag but really like them toasted golden brown!
What tv show do you wish was still on the air? Or alternatively, what’s your favorite tv show ever? Hmmm. My favorite TV show ever, of all time, would have to be Supernatural. As for shows I wish were still on the air, I just can’t think of any…maybe the X Files, if it hadn’t started to suck so bad at the end.
What is the super power you would most like to have? And least like to have? I’d like to be able to snap my fingers like Mary Poppins and have everything clean itself. I think I wouldn’t like to be able to read minds, that would be terrible. (I agree on the mind reading. It’s not very useful without being able to control the person – all moral/ethics issues aside – and could be so hurtful.)
What’s the first type of alcohol you ever tried to drink? Will you you still drink it now? What’s your current favorite? Type and/or mixed? The very first alcohol I ever tried to drink was sloe gin. I don’t even know if that’s a real thing, so no, I wouldn’t drink it now. I don’t drink very much, but I like margaritas and whiskey. (Not at the same time.) Jameson is my preferred whiskey though I was thinking of branching out and giving something else a try.
Would you rather live and deal with dinosaurs, or ice age animals? Hmm. Dinosaurs, at least it would be warm.
What would be the ultimate animal? You can use any creature real or mythical, and combine up to five. Oh, lord. I suppose a sharktopusgatorantula would be horrific. (I’d like to see a picture of that please… ;))
I’m *pretty* sure Superman is your favorite super hero. So why him over Wolverine, or Batman, Green Lantern, Iron Man, etc? And who do you most prefer as an actor depiction/in film? Hmm. I like Batman too. But Superman’s just such a nice, good guy. I like both the Christopher Reeve version as well as Brandon Routh’s.
Megan is giving away a copy of Virtue and Vice and whatever promo goodies she has at the moment. Good deal, yeah? So – here’s how you enter: comment and ask Megan any question you want. As wacky or as serious as you like. Or, answer one of the questions I asked her. Or try your hand at drawing a sharktopusgatorantula.
The winner will be drawn on Saturday, so get chatty!
