What’s the first book you remember reading?
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
What’s the most recent book you have read or what are you reading right now?
The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice
Why did you choose that book?
I’ve devoted my October and November reading to the horror genre.
If you could meet one book character or one author, who would you like it to be and why?
J.R.R. Tolkien (yes, he died years before I was born, but we’re talking hypotheticals). So many questions, so little time…
You can only choose five books for your bookshelf. What are they?
(1) The Silmarillion, by J.R.R. Tolkien. (2) The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien (3) The Gormenghast Trilogy by Mervyn Peake (it has been published in one volume!). (4) Lord of Light, by Roger Zelazny (5) The Emperor of Dreams, by Clark Ashton Smith
I love writing as well as reading; in addition to bits and pieces of poetry, I have my first novel, entitled Wise Phuul, out as of November 2016. I live in Dunedin, New Zealand, have a fondness for chocolate and cats, and am in the process of pursuing a legal career.
Join the movement!
I want to promote reading. I know there are so many out there who have read a book and thought, this is something others need to know about. Reading encourages a lifelong passion for learning. #carolinareads is a movement that will give readers a chance to share what they are reading. There is a five question interview. I will share it on my website and give you a chance to not only promote your love of reading but also to promote yourself as you can include a website in your two sentence biography. Don’t live in the Carolinas? Well, do you know someone who does (hint: the person who created this form) you can still participate. Submit the form and I’ll let you know the date of your spotlight. Spread the word! Join the movement. Please email a picture if you would like it to be included.
