Karina has been here before and she always entertains. She has multiple books and does some really nice fundraisers as well. So, let’s see what Karina has to say…
3. What do you have under your bed?
Under my bed is a collection of shoes that does not fit into my other three closets. Of course, what happens is that I forget about those under the bed and think that I need to go out and buy more shoes. It is an endless cycle. There are also dust bunnies under my bed, but in the second bedroom my husband and I have the real thing—live house rabbits. They make marvelous pets. One of them, Dusty, is pictured with me in my author’s photo. He’s an angora, which is why his ears aren’t as long as most breeds. He was chosen because he was able to sit still and pose far longer than our other four bunnies could. Dusty is now prideful, and the others are miffed. They are already lobbying hard to be in the next photo shoot.
1. In three days, all power will go off, everywhere for a very long time. What will you include in your author survival kit?
This post is coming out on the heels of SuperStorm Sandy and power outages are very real for our East Coast American readers.
A pack of Zebra fine-tip black ink pens. Tons of spiral notebooks. Thesaurus. A mystery from each of Lee Child, Lisa Gardner, Sue Grafton, Janet Evanovich. A Pat Conroy book, probably Prince of Tides. A way to make sweet tea, probably sun tea since there’s no power. That’s it. Everything else is superfluous. It still only takes a pad and ink to make stories happen, and I can do that a long time. I MIGHT take a manual typewriter, because I love thinking while I type and I’m a much faster typist than writer.
