Favorite book when you were a child: The Black Stallion books by Walter Farley.
Until I was about eleven, I read nothing but horse books. Then I decided I wanted to be a cop when I grew up, and I started reading gruesome, true crime books. I never did pursue a career in law enforcement, but I still have the vivid nightmares I got from staying up all night reading true murder stories when I was so young!
Your top five authors: Lois McMaster Bujold, John Scalzi, Brandon Sanderson, Mark Lawrence, Daniel Polansky
Book you’ve faked reading: I’ve started and stopped a lot of books, but I don’t know that I’ve ever faked reading one. If I have, I certainly don’t remember!
Book you’re an evangelist for: Prince of Thorns. I love this book! I love that I fell in love with the main character, Jorg, within the first few pages even though he is murderous little shit without any initially obvious redeeming qualities.
Book that changed your life: The Four Agreements.
Favorite line from a book: “Water! Water!” It’s always water with the dying. Strange, it’s killing that gives me a thirst.” – Prince of Thorns
Which character you most relate to: The character that I am most like is Tigger.
The character that I connect with the most is currently Jorg Ancrath, an evil little turd that I absolutely adore! Ironically, I doubt Tigger would feel the same connection. But then again, he just might…..
Book you most want to read again for the first time: Prince of Thorns. The first time I read it, I devoured it far too quickly. I just couldn’t bring myself to slow down and fully appreciate its many flavors.
Tell me about YOUR book: Jacob, King of Portalia is about a boy who discovers that he can never be the person he was born to be unless he can find the courage to stop hiding from the one thing that terrifies him the most—the truth about who he is:
A boy who likes boys.
A boy with a destiny foretold in an ancient legend.
A boy whose love could save us all.
Jacob: King of Portalia
