Follow Friday! (4)

FOLLOW FRIDAY! And this is my FOURTH ONE! Wow, it feels like yesterday was my first! How time flies, eh?

Follow Friday is a meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, so check them out, and this week's featured blogs are We Fancy Books and A Novella's Tale, so CHECK THEM OUT! Awesome sauce!

Q. 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 get advice on writing from?
Wow, this is a tough question, and I am going to have some weird answers, so stay with me.

While most teens read YA, I read the Dragonriders of Pern. And if you haven't read the Dragonriders of Pern, you are missing out. This series changed my life and got me into actually writing.

The closest I ever got to meeting her was having lunch with someone who took a class with her in college. She's actually a microbiology professor in addition to being a science fiction writer.

I didn't start out with his fiction, but it's just amazingly breathtaking. And I DEVOURED Underground a couple years ago. It was just heartbreaking, and true. Check it out.

So what are your answers? I'm curious to find out!


  1. These are new to me authors that I'll have to look into. I'm your newest follower and would love for you to visit me when you get a chance.

  2. Wow, I love your reviews so far! lol I'm definitely a new follower.
