Q. 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?
Wiliiam Shakespeare. I have a
crazy slight obsessions with Shakespeare. The way he constructs sentences and dialogue, I just can't get enough. I'd like to pick his brain and just listen to him talk for a while. And of course, I would be writing down everything he says.
William Faulkner. I took a special topics English class in college which focused solely on the writings of Mr. Faulkner. It was the absolute best and worst class of my life. It was a graduate level class and it kicked my butt (still got a B tho). I've never had to read and reread one author so much to finally understand the true meaning of his words. The man is a genius.
"The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life."

JK Rowling. I haven't read all of the Harry Potter books, most are still on my TBR list. However, I admire her so much. The world she created, the frenzy she created. She is one author I rarely hear a bad word about. Very religious people are against the whole magic wizardry thing but they can't deny the talent and skill this woman has. If I could win a lunch date with any author, it would be her. Her imagination is amazing and I would love to dig all through it.

Q. What’s the ONE GENRE that you wish you could get into, but just can’t?
Sci-Fi. I just can't get into it. Outer space, aliens and all, just not my cup of tea. My hubs loves Sci-Fi. In fact, Dune is one of his favorites. I just can't get with it.

Bookshelf Tour: Where do you keep your books at home?
Are they organized?
I'm totally organized when it comes to my books.
(Sorry for the blurry pic). This is my office/dining room area. My bookcases are filled to capacity. I organize them by genre, all the fantasy together, all the urban lit, together, all the Stephen King and Dean Koontz together (hubby's books). I wish I would have known this was the question I would have taken some more, better, pics. I'm looking to add another in the bedroom. This pic was taken 2 weeks ago and I now have a stack of about 10-15 books on the table. I can't wait until I have my house with an actual library. One day, I promise. One day!
