Q. In some books like the Sookie Stackhouse series the paranormal creature in question “comes out of the closet” and makes itself known to the world. Which mythical creature do you wish this would happen with in real life? 

Taking the literal sense of the question, it might be cool to learn that there were shapeshifters in the world. Just regular people who could shift their body mass into that of an animal. They aren’t dangerous in any way, they just are. Sadly, I’d be worried about the US government taking shapeshifters in for.. well.. dissection as you always see in movies and books when something new and unknown makes itself known.

On the other hand, while I like the idea that dragons don’t exist now because BURNY, it would be very interesting to hear of dragon skeletons uncovered by archaeologists. To learn that the tales of St. George and Emrys and others were in fact true and that the reason dragons are so prevalent in many, many cultures but with different appearances, is because there were once different breeds of dragon worldwide, they just couldn’t cope any more. Perhaps with the change in atmosphere, perhaps brave knights slayed them all, who knows, but somehow they became extinct. But wouldn’t it be awesome to know that once they did exist and other myths and legends were based on fact?

Sometimes I overthink fantasy! I suppose as a wannabe writer that’s a good thing, though?

Q. Non-book-related this week!! Do you have pets?

I always have growing up, but not since my cat died a couple of years ago. Hopefully we’ll get something when we finally get our own place.. a non-pet hating place.

Q. Book Associations:
Which genre, authors, or particular books do you think people associate with your reading style?

Feh, I don’t have a clue to be honest. I would imagine fantasy, I’ve always been into dragons and magic, but then again I got very much into literary fiction and magical realism in my late teens when I was doing my A levels so I suppose some of my friends might associate me more with that kind of literature in mind though for the most part, fantasy. The thing is, my moods change so much between my preferred genres that it’s hard to get an idea. One month I might be obsessively coveting historical fiction and the next I want to devour every vampire book I can find.

What do you associate me with?
