For those who don't know: I'm Kat, I blog and review fiction-- my typical reads being fantasy, sci-fi-esque, or historical. My blog has recently been undergoing big renovations, so if you by chance sight a banner extending across the entire page or if text is suddenly obliterated behind a blog button after you refresh, pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. ;)
This week's FF featured bloggers are: We Fancy Books.
I've been following these guys' reviews for a while now-- good stuff, so go check it out!
The question posed to us this week 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 getting advice on writing from?
My answer: Well, my first author idol is going to be a total duh, so let's just get that out of the way. The author I would love to meet most is JK Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series. She seems to be a very private person, considering the international fame and millions of adoring fans she has accumulated. I have been a fan of Ms. Rowling's books since I was six years old, so I have more than a whole decade's worth of questions and... gushing about Harry Potter with which I would love to bombard her.
My next choice would have to be Neil Gaiman. Another popular favorite author, yeah-- I'm guessing my answers aren't going to be the most original this week! I love Gaiman's books to death, and I also love to watch his appearances and announcements and everything in between on Youtube. So, I sorta kinda stalk him, yes. He has the cleverest, quickest wit, and as a side note I could listen to his voice all day.
My final author idol is a toss-up between JRR Tolkien, author of the Lord of the Rings and all its sequel, prequel, and companion novel trappings, and Michael Grant, who writes the YA Gone series. I fear I would probably end up going all Stephen King's Misery on Michael Grant, demanding to know what fate befalls my favorite characters in his last two books. ... I'm thinking that would actually be an issue for me when it comes to having a face-to-face chat with quite a few of my favorite authors. ;) I'd love nothing more than to learn who you guys would love to meet, so comment away!
Wishing you Happy Hopping and a totally awesome weekend,
