Recently, I asked you guys to ask me some questions on Social Media. The twist was they did not have to be book related. I got some pretty interesting questions. Here are the best ones!
Let's start with a book related question. It read, If you could collaborate on a book with anyone who would you choose? This one is tough. There are so many fantastic authors out there that I would be honered to collaborate with. Stephen King is one of my favorite authors, J.K. Rowling has had amazing success, J.R.R. Tolkien created wonderful worlds we still celebrate today, and Arthur Conan Doyle created the best detective of all time. But I think I would have to say Ian Fleming, creator of the James Bond novels. No, not because of my last name but becasue of the character he created (and maybe a little bit because of my last name). Mr. Fleming wrote those novels in the late 1950's and today James Bond is still one of the biggest characters of all time. Mr. Fleming seemed like an interesting individual and would have been a lot of fun to collaborate with. He turned what he thought of as the most boring name in the world and turned it into a house hold name. And his novels are still full of suspense and intrigue to this day. Sure, they've aged, but they have not lost their allure!
Next question, What are your 1-2 top items on your bucket list? Wow, there are so many things I would love to do in this lifetime! Travel the world, see the northern lights, go skydiving. But those are all pretty cliche. The top two things on my list would have to be a bit different. First, I would absolutely love to travel into space. Now, I know this one might not be very realistic but it's still something I think would be awesome. I'm not talking about those planes that give you the feeling of weightlessness either. I'm talking about taking a capsule into orbit and seeing our planet from the darkness of space! I should have grown up to be an astronaut! If commercial space travel is invented in my lifetime you better believe I'm going to do it! As for the other thing, I would love to have a role in a major motion picture. It doesn't need to be a major part but rather an extra, or more specifically a cameo of some kind. I think it would be a lot of fun. I've always loved movies and thought I'd grow up to be an action star one day. Then I decided to write the books instead. If I ever strike up a movie deal I'm going to make sure they let me cameo in it!
Last questions was, If you could only do one action, aside from breathing, what would it be? Why? I love this question! Such a creative one and pretty difficult. Assuming it means I would be unable to move, except for whatever action I chose and breathing, I'd have to say walking. There's a lot of places I want to see and a lot of things I would love to do. It would be impossible if I couldn't even walk! I love to hike, camp, and travel. Those things would be difficult to do without the ability to walk! But does that mean I wouldn't be able to see or hear? Ugh, impossible choice!
I really enjoyed this, I hope you did too! If you did, let me know. Maybe I'll do it again in the future. I would love to see what creative questions you guys come up with. Let me know in the comments if you want another one! Thanks for reading!
