The poll results are in – and the “Interview with Sara” option won by a landslide! So, for this year’s blogoversary, YOU the readers have the chance to grill ME with questions. How does that sound? 😉
Today’s post is a call for questions for the interview, which will post on Saturday, July 9th (the official blogoversary date). You can ask me anything about writing, books and authors I’ve read, tea, music, something else – it’s up to you! But first, in case you need help thinking of questions…
A Quick Bio, For Your Convenience
I’m a fantasy writer and lifelong Massachusetts resident. I’ve been writing ever since I learned how to hold a crayon, and that passion has taken myriad forms since then. Maybe that explains why I’m a tea reviewer, published poet, and former music journalist (focusing on female-fronted rock and metal). In other words, I can’t stop writing!
Novel-writing has been the one true constant over the years, however; and I’ve come to believe it’s my calling in life. Currently I’m editing a YA epic fantasy novel that’s tentatively titled The Keeper’s Curse. I have lots of ideas for other fantasy stories, too, but each will have to patiently wait its turn.
I’m also an avid reader, though most of what I read is fantasy. But I enjoy other genres, too, like science fiction, historical fiction, steampunk, and contemporary / literary fiction. The target age (adult versus YA) doesn’t matter; it’s more important that a compelling, emotionally engaging story is being told. Some of my favorite authors include Ursula K. Le Guin, J.R.R. Tolkien, Kristin Cashore, Laini Taylor, Patrick Rothfuss, Leigh Bardugo, N.K. Jemisin, and Paulo Coelho.
What else do I do besides write and read? Well, I like watching movies, cooking, coloring (mandalas and adult coloring books), yoga, walking, spending time with family and friends, and visiting Cape Cod. I also love most kinds of tea and an eclectic range of music; and I’m a geek for anything related to Middle-Earth, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, and Orphan Black.
