5:00 AM Posted by James Noel , No comments

If you could do any job in the world what would you do? Ghost hunter, sorry paranormal investigator that would be so cool!

What are you most passionate about? What gets you fired up? Ha ha ha, um I’m a very passionate person, so it takes little get me fired up. You really don’t want me to get started on something I believe deeply in.

What makes you angry? People to put it gently, not all people but most people.

What’s your most embarrassing moment of your life? I’m notorious for making a fool of myself, so this list would be way too long to even considering giving just one answer. I have daily moments when I do something crazy and look back and think, why on earth did I do that for?!

Are you a city slicker or a country lover? Country all the way, I have the Akubra to prove it!

How do you think people perceive writers? Um I’m not sure, there are so many writer out there that are just not what you would expect, I know I’m not really what people expect when they see me at uni in my lab coat and safety glasses, or when at home in my jeans and t-shirt so really I don’t know.

What’s your next project? I have a current online novel that I write a chapter for every week, and a few other things I’m working on. I’m always working on something though.

What’s the reason for your life? Have you figured out your reason for being here yet? Ha ha ha wow, a very deep question, I’m not sure I can be that philosophical. My original answer to that was to be supreme overlord of earth but my friend informed me that, no one would befit from that so I guess maybe not.

How do you feel about self-publishing? It’s an easy and good way, I don’t think anything is wrong with it. if you find the right firm it can be good. There are a lot of great self-published authors!

Do you know your neighbors? Yes, not well though, both of my neighbours are new, but I know their names lol

How important are friends in your life? Very important, I honestly don’t know what I’d do without my friends, I really don’t.

How many friends does a person need? As many as they want, I think one good friend id worth more than a million almost friends. I’m lucky enough to have a few good friends.

What does love mean to you? I don’t know how to answer that without rambling. To me love in the kind of thing you’d die for, it’s sacred and should be cherished.

When you get free time on the internet or you go to the library – what do you want to read about? Anything really, I don’t really read much on the internet unless I’m doing research for uni, or a book I’m writing. Though I do frequent rewiew blogs and just blogs I find amusing.

Do you find the time to read? As much as I can, I love reading!

Last book you purchased? Tell us about it. In the last week I’ve brought The Last Wish and Blood of Elves, both by Andrzej Spokowski.  Dead ever after by Charlene Harris, The Bane Chronicles, Book 1,2 and three, by Cassandra Clare, and pre ordered Fifth Grave Past the Light  by Darynda Jones. I’ve only read Dead Ever After so far and I both loved it and hated it at the same time. I’m a long time Sookie fan, even before the TV show so I was really sad to see it end.  Must say there was a fair amount of fan-girling going on while reading that.

What is your favorite quality about yourself? My total inability to give up on something I want. My dad calls me Gunna, because I’m always Gunna do something lol

What is your least favorite quality about yourself? Probably my total inability to give up on something I want, as well. It’s somewhat of a blessing and a curse.

What is your favorite quote, by whom, and why? I have two both by Albert Einstein, the first is

Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.”

And the other

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”

Just because I agree fully with both of them.

What are you most proud of accomplishing so far in your life? I think people should be proud of all things they accomplish. Show pride in yourself and others will see and respect that. I’m proud of anything I accomplish, no matter how small.

What is your favorite color? Purple

What is your favorite food? Chocolate! Or anything dipped or covered in chocolate… mmmm yummy!
