Tag! You're It!

 

There's a game of tag going on in the blogosphere and danged if Jaye of http://jayerobinbrown.blogspot.com  didn’t catch me. Part of the tag was answering her vicious and evil questions. Okay, so not that vicious and evil but difficult, yes.


1. What is the best meal you've ever eaten - what, when, and where.

 

How about the most memorable week of meals? Hands down it would be the food at the Orson Scott Card’s Literary Bootcamp (Southern Virginia University in Buena Vista, Virginia 2006). Maybe it was the southern Mormon cooking, maybe it was the company and conversations, but it was fantastic.

 

If you scroll down this post on Kennedy Brandt’s website, you’ll see everyone who was there and another photo of a reunion meal at ReaderCon in

Boston. http://www.kennedybrandt.com/main/fact/live.html

 

 

2. What is your earliest memory?

 

Actually, one of my earliest memories plays a role in my WIP.

 

I remember waking up in the front bedroom of the large Georgian house I was raised in. It was pitch-black and I had to go to the bathroom.  As a rule the streetlights brightened that bedroom, so the darkness startled me. I didn’t want to be a baby and cry out—or pee in my bed. I think I ended up yelling for my mother to bring me a glass of water, instead of saying I was scared to get out of the bed and go to the bathroom.


3. If given your choice of a secret rendezvous with any fictional hottie - who would you choose?

 

LOL. Since I’m dying to see the new Dark Shadows movie and am working on a gothic, I’ll fall back on a vintage favorite. Quentin Collins (David Selby—who’s like seventy-one-years-old now)


5. Pick three words to describe yourself (one is just too hard!)

 

How about:

  1. determined
  2.  creative
  3. woodsy-hyphen-loving-animal-loving-grateful-florist-antiquedealer-writer-with-hope.



And now it's my turn to tag some folks! I'm picking some writing friends I’d love to know more about.
