11 Questions from Kaitlyn:
1) What’s your favorite quote?
“Oh, Death, where is your sting? Oh, Hell, where is your victory?”
2) What’s your least favorite holiday?
Thanksgiving. Just lots of dirty dishes and caloric temptations eager to insulate my thighs.
3) How many books in a year do you normally read?
Aww…gee…My record is 78, but since starting college and writing, it’s closer to 30-35. I am not proud of this.
4) Do you have a pet(s)? Tell us about it/them.
I have my Jack Rusell Terrier, Schnay, who is my baby even though she just celebrated her 8th birthday. We used to show in agility, rally obedience, go-to-ground, and lots of other fun stuff, but she’s been pretty much retired since I started college.
5) What’s the meaning behind your name?
My first name means “one to whom God is an oath” or so I have been told. My middle name is a variation of Mary, which means bitter, so I guess that would be “bitter one to whom God is an oath.” Not sure what to make of that.
6) If you could live in any book’s world, where would you live?
NARNIA, HERE I COME!!!
7) What book has inspired you the most in your writing?
Depends what I’m writing, really. My first series was great influenced by Madeleine L’Engle’s The Time Quintet, particularly the morality. But really, it just depends.
8) What do you prefer to do on a hot summer day?
Whine about the heat and go swimming. Or go running to work on my tan and have everyone tell me how nuts I am. (Did I mention I’m vain?)
9) Stargazing or netflixing with someone you love to be around?
Stargazing, every time it’s an option. TV producers think they can compete with the cosmic masterpiece of God Himself? LOL.
10) Do you watch TV? If yes, what’s your favorite show?
I do watch TV, but extremely rarely. Right now, my favorite show (that has not be cancelled or finished) would probably be Doctor Who. However, I’m so behind on watching it, I may hate what Moffat has done by now.
11) And lastly… What’s your life motto?
“My one defense, my righteousness, oh God how I need You.”-Matt Maher
