The Wall: Submit Author Interview Questions

Welcome to The Wall!

This is where we can all post questions that will help us get to know out authors a little better. Do you have a question you would like for me to ask in an author interview? Post it here! During each interview, I will pick a couple of questions at random to ask our authors.

What can you ask? Well, anything you want! Silly and fun questions are encouraged on The Wall! The questions do not have to berelated to reading or writing, as most of these types of questions will be asked during the main portion of the interview.

Examples:
What's your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Which Harry Potter character are you most like?
When you were a teenager, what celebrity were you secretly in love with?

But please don't ask questions that are inappropriate or too personal. Authors are permitted to refuse to answer a question if they do not feel comfortable sharing such information with the public.

Please post general questions only, not questions addressed to any specific author.

If I choose to use your question during the interview, you will be tagged as well! So go ahead! Start posting your questions!

Do you think that they should continue skip the 13th floor in hotels, and if so, why?

What is your favorite color and why? Has it always been that same one or does it change from time to time? (Mine has not changed over the decades!!!|)

Do you do any kind of research? What are your research methods? What do you do if you find conflicting source material?
