I will be back in a bit to add another post, but first, the Friday Five.
1. If you could eat dinner with and “get to know” one famous person (living or dead), who would you choose?
Tad Williams. I used to be on a mailing list pertaining to him and his books (I NEED to find that again, it was awesome) and he would write in to the list himself occasionally, and he seemed like a really intriguing personality. And I LOVE his books.
2. Has the death of a famous person ever had an effect on you? Who was it and how did you feel?
YES, Marion Zimmer Bradley. She has been my favorite author since I was 11 years old. I have read damn near close to ALL of her books, and I loved every one. When she passed away, I felt like a dear friend had gone.
3. If you could BE a famous person for 24 hours, who would you choose?
Probably Marie Curie. Wow, what must it have FELT like to make such a discovery???
4. Do people ever tell you that you look like someone famous? Who?
Nope, I am Mary Ordinary. LoL.
5. Have you ever met anyone famous?
Yep, I met Anne Rice when I was in college (wow, a lot of authors in here, can you tell I am a book worm??) and got her book “The Witching Hour” signed.

Spread the love

Lynn: Nope, This was in Boston. She was at Boston University, where I went to college, for a book signing. =)
Alex: She seemed really quiet, looks JUST like her pictures, very pleasant speaking voice. I can’t really remember what we talked about, it has been almost 12 years now, but I do remember she took the time to answer a few of my questions, which gives her extremely high marks from me. =)
