11 Questions Tagalong

I was tagged by shakespearesucks. Rules: Answer 11 questions, pass 11 different questions on to those tagged. Tag 11 new people.


1. Who is your biggest inspiration in your field of work (or the field of work you wish to go into)?

Well, Christopher Paolini is the reason I ever started writing books, so he’s one inspiration. Then, two years ago, I discovered John Green, and because of him I realized the type of themes I wanted to convey to readers.

2. What was your favorite book series when you were younger?

I remember loving the “Boxcar Children.” And, of course, Harry Potter — but I hated Harry Potter the first time I read it. I had to reread it for a library challenge and then my life changed forever. HP fan since 2000!!!

3. Root beer or Dr. Pepper?

Dr. Pepper, by far. (But don’t get me started on my Coca Cola obsession.

4. If you could live in any other country besides your current one, where would it be and why?

New Zealand. It’s absolutely beautiful. I love mountain vistas and diverse, medieval-ish landscapes.

5. Who do you think is the most underrated actor/actress these days?

Um….yeah. I don’t really have an opinion. Uh, Andrew Garfield. There.

6. What is your favorite movie sequel?

The Dark Knight. Best second movie ever. But TDKR was terrible.

7. If you could trade places with any fictional character, who would it be and why?

This is gonna come across as egotistic, but my own main character, Arman Lance. I love space travel and discovery and stuff, so I want to live in a world where space exploration (especially interstellar) is an everyday thing.

I guess Kirk from Star Trek, then, if can’t choose my own characters XD

8. If you could teach any subject at Hogwarts, what would it be?

Defense Against the Dark Arts.

9. What is your favorite classic (book)?

A Tale of Two Cities

10. What is your favorite fictional creature?

Daemons, from the “His Dark Materials” trilogy. God I’d love a daemon.

11. Who is the most overrated classic author?

Again, not much opinion…but I hate “The Scarlet Letter,” so I’ll say Nathanael Hawthorne.

My 11 questions are:

1. Who is your favorite author?

2. What is your favorite fictional world?

3. What town would you most like to live in in the world?

4. What is your favorite kind of coffee/tea?

5. Peppermint Hot Chocolate, or Pumpkin Spice Latte?

6. What is your favorite season and why?

7. Coke or Pepsi?

8. What is your favorite place to read or write?

9. What is your favorite book cover?

10. Ebooks or Real Books?

11. Do you prefer to hand-write or type?
