I have been on a blog tour for PRODIGAL for the past week, and I’ve been interviewed, I’ve interviewed a pig, my cat has interviewed someone else, I’ve interviewed one of the characters from my book PRODIGAL, and now I’m going to interview my 10 year old daughter. She’s answering (most of) the questions as if it’s not me who’s interviewing her. I am not interviewing my 14 year old daughter, however, because she’s mean.
1) What do you think of your mom being an author?
Well, I really like it because she can help me to write my papers for school which sometimes I have trouble with. Grammar and stuff—I really don’t know much about grammar and typing.
2) What do you think about the genre your mom writes in? (Note: The genre is romance and the recent release is science fiction romance.)
At this age, I definitely wouldn’t read them, so I have no feelings toward it, because I haven’t really read any romance books. I’ve probably read SF books but no romance books. If there were ever romance in my books, it was way in the background.
3) Do you think the cats help your mom be a better writer? (Note: we have six cats since Grandma and her 4 cats moved in with us last year.)
Yes, because they’re adorable, furry and extremely annoying. Like Sam. Mom will be sitting there and he will come put his butt against her leg. Or in the middle of the night, he will come pop her shoulder out of place. Merri just comes into the room and is all meow meow meow meow meow. Sometimes Mom even asks me for a cat.
4) Why do you think she wants you to get her a cat?
Since the cats are so adorable, furry and annoying, they give her inspiration. They’re cats. They’re just awesome.
5) What does she do with the cats when you give them to her?
She lets them sit there while she pets them and she just lets them be big, furry blogs. Sometimes I’m pretty sure they just run away, though. If she gets sad about that, then I’ll just chase down the cat again.
6) Does your mom still take good care of you while being an author?
Yes, she helps with school, she makes dinner almost every night…let’s see, what else does she do? She buys stuff for me and she makes sure I am healthy. And! She always loves me.
7) Do you want to read your mom’s books?
Not at this particular time, but maybe later in my life. They’re just too grown up to me right now.
8) Do you think she should write kid’s books that you could read? If so, about what?
I would say yes, but I already have too many books that I want to read right now. I would want her to write about magic, cats and more cats. Oh, and don’t forget rainbows.
9) Do you think your mom’s books are even any good? After all, you haven’t read them.
Mom, I’m not going to answer that. Jeez!
10) Any final words for the readers out there who have yet to try your mom’s books?
People should buy and read them more because my mommy doesn’t make a lot of money.
