Ali: Is there an author that makes you go all “fangirl?”
I'm hoping to meet Nalini Singh at RT and would absolutely love to meet Anne Bishop someday.
Ali: If you could co-write with another author who would it be and why?
P. J.: Hmm. Co-writing is a very challenging endeavor. I have so much respect to writing teams because of the work that goes into the project and the pure magic required to mesh two writing minds (both of which likely have multiple personalities). The complexity boggles my mind!
If I did co-write, I think it would be with my little sister. The two of us have a long history or working together and balancing each other. She's the brilliant mind in most of my brainstorming already. :)
Ali:What are you looking forward to most about AADNola?
P. J.: Meeting readers! I'll never get used to the idea of someone reading one of my stories, and love to meet the readers who enjoy them.
Ali: The world is under attack and you are forced to run for your life. You only have room for one book in your survival kit, what book do you take?
P. J.: iPad - it carries lots of books...
Ali: Who are your favorite literary characters? (Yours or someone else’s)
P. J.: Winnie the Pooh, Piglet and Eeyore. There's a lot of wisdom to be learned from them.
Ali: Are there any of your secondary characters you would like to give more life to?
P. J.: Mack from Terra's Guardians will definitely have a story all his own. Boggle from the Triton Esperiment series is also a very dear character and I will find a way to give him a love story in answer to the Challenge issued by The Galaxy Express!
Ali: If you friends were asked to describe you in one word what would it be?
P. J.: Effervescent
It's been used by many different, completely unrelated groups of friends and even work colleagues. I figure it's not a coincidence. :P
