First of all, welcome Alison to The Scribbling Sprite! (I feel like that should be Sprites now. Maybe we should come up with your own mythical creature name.) For those of you who didn't see my last post, Alison has agreed to join me as my co-blogger. Today I will be interviewing her so you can see how weird she is. *Spoilers* The answer is very. :D
Also, something else that's pretty exciting.... This is The Scribbling Sprite's 100TH POST!!!! I think it's kind of awesome that my 100th post happens to be Alison's first. Anyway...here's some more info about Alison! We don't actually have a bio for her yet, but I basically know everything about her. *Nods*
Alison is a quirky teenager, voracious reader(we like to call ourselves book drunkards, see), an aspiring author, and a sci-fi/fantasy geek(I know she would have no objections with me saying this). I think I can list her fandoms with authority. That is: Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Star Trek, Merlin, Firefly, Supernatural, Lord of the Rings, and Star Wars. Pinterest is her one true love.
On to the interview:
What are your top five favorite books/series? (Obviously, this is the most important question...)
That's a bit difficult, but I'll do my best:
1. Harry Potter (obviously)
2. The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom: I had to read this one for school, but it's one of the best books I've ever read and it really opened my eyes about what happened during WW2
3. The Goose Girl: This book was part of my transition into YA books, and it did a great job. (Don't worry Ally, I'll read the rest of the series soon.)
4. The River of Time series by Lisa T. Bergren: I don't have much of an explanation for this one except that it was PHENOMENAL!
And last but not least:
5. The Iron Butterfly series by Chanda Hahn: If I had to pick one story to live in, this one would be in my top three. The world she created was a masterpiece and the people in it went on the most amazing journeys.
What made you decide to start blogging? (Psst. It's me. You know it's me.)
Pretty much, yeah. It was Ally.
Can you share your favorite quote with us?
"Never laugh at live dragons." -J.R.R. Tolkien
What's something unique about you that you'd like to share with our readers?
I am not technically a writer yet, but I plan to be, and I have many novel ideas (hehe, did you get that?). I often threaten to use my friends as characters and kill them off in my novels. I have already planned the deaths of many.
What do you want to do when you "grow up" (It won't happen you guys. Not literally)
I want to RULE THE WORLD!!
*Facepalm* Yet another blogger aspiring for world domination, I see.
What's your favorite genre to read? To write?
My favorite genre to read is probably fantasy, because the way people create whole new worlds and make them seem real kind of blows me away.
My favorite genre to write is probably fantasy as well, because I don't have to follow any rules.
Make sure to give a warm welcome to Alison in the comments. And--just for fun--what are your fandoms?
