I’m going to do something a little different.  I’m going to take one of my characters and let them answer these questions.  Since I’ve been running posts about His Wicked Lady, I’m going to let Mr. Malcolm Jasper (the character who wants to be removed from my super awesome funny Regency) answer them.

Malcolm: I don’t want to be here.

Ruth: Oh, come on.  It’ll be fun.

Malcolm: I’m done with His Wicked Lady.  I refuse to be in it.

Ruth: Right now, we’re going to go through these questions.

Malcolm: Why?

Ruth: For fun.  Sometimes it’s okay to do something for the sake of having fun.

Malcolm: *sighs* Get on with it.  The sooner we get this over with, the sooner I can get back to packing so I can leave His Wicked Lady.

Ruth: You’re so cute, thinking you’re actually getting out of the book.  But we can argue this another day.  Right now, we’re off to the questions people are dying to know about you!

The three original questions:

1. If you could meet anyone throughout history, who and why?

King Solomon, king of Israel, who had the greatest wisdom of anyone who’s ever lived on Earth.  He could probably tell me how to get out of your lousy book, not to mention give me great financial tips.  He was wealthy, too.

2. What is your favorite book and why?

Inferno by Dante Alighieri because it gives me all sorts of great ideas of what to do with my cad brother-in-law, Logan, and my dimwitted author, Ruth.  I can write a book, too, you know.

3. Who is your favorite fiction character from any medium and why?

Romeo (from William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet) because there’s a hero who gets to die.  Oh, that I had such fortune in my own sad, sordid tale.

Now for Rami’s questions:

1. When was the last time you saw a scary movie? What was it, what did you think, and do you normally watch scary movies?

Well, in my time period, there are no movies.  We have the theatre.  The scariest play I’ve ever seen was “Hamlet” by William Shakespeare.  He was heir to the throne and could have had all the riches of his kingdom.  But instead of taking it, he killed himself, thereby losing all his fortune.  I didn’t sleep for weeks after that.

2. What are you dressing up for this Halloween? What are your plans for the holiday?

I’m not dressing up as anything.  I have no need to.  I’m perfect just the way I am.

3. What is something (book/TV show/comic book/movie) from your childhood that you still enjoy today?

I enjoy the first coin I was ever given.  I still have it safely tucked away.  Every time I look at it, I remember that my family didn’t start out with much, but with patience and hard work, we became wealthy.  It reminds me that what’s important is where we’re heading, not where we’ve been.


Now that I’m done with this blasted post, I’ll come up with three questions of my own for the next unfortunate soul who’ll be tagged.  (Sorry in advance.  My author is making me do this.  Feel free to send her all your hate email.  Or, better yet, leave a bunch of scathing reviews on all her other horrible books.)

  1.  If you were a character forced to do something you didn’t want, what would be the best way to get revenge against the author?

2.  What is your most valuable piece of financial advice?

3.  What song best describes your life and why?

The poor bloggers I have to tag as part of this thing.  (This is what you get for being friends with Ruth.) *evil snicker*

  1. Great post. Very inventive to use a character of yours. And he should be grateful he’s not in one of my stories. Some of those don’t end very well at all for the characters involved.

  2. Ah, Ruth, you hid behind your character to avoid answering the questions. Very clever! 🙂

    I’ll have to do mine tomorrow since today is check in for ROW80, and I refuse to make people read two of my blog posts in one day. LOL

    • Honestly, I didn’t think anyone would really be interested in knowing this stuff about me. Whenever I do these posts, I get a few views. My popular posts are usually updates and character interviews. I try to make things fun for those who stop by to visit. 🙂
