Follow Friday

Friday Follow is a blog hop that was started by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we will answer!  This is a great opportunity for bloggers to network and interact. 
This week’s question –

What living author or authors would you like to have dinner with? (Try to think beyond JK Rowling)

Hmm...this is a toughie.  I think I would want to have dinner with a group of living authors.  It would be interesting to speak with George R.R. Martin about his Game of Thrones series..although I would be afraid of messing up the names of his characters.  Another author I would like to have dinner with would be Kimberly Derting.  From the interaction I have had with her, she seems to be very friendly and down to earth.  I have enjoyed all of her series and appreciate that her novels carry well without the use of excessive slang, sex or swearing.  

However, if I were to sit at a table of authors for dinner, I think I would like to have dinner with are Cassandra Clare and Holly Black.  Mortal Instruments is my favorite series and when I saw these two at a Chapters signing years ago, you can tell they are great friends with fantastic ideas.  Maybe invite Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson and Kiersten White as well.  What an interesting night that would be!

  1. We're definitely on the same boat with George R.R. Martin except that I won't be messing the name of his characters. I had to read all 5 books twice for that, you know!
