Blog Tour: Over The Edge

I'm at "Over the Edge Book Reviews" today, doing a Q&A with Christine who (thank God) has some wonderfully original questions. There's only so many answers to give to "Where did you get your ideas?" so it's lovely that Christine wanted to know things like "What's the most interesting thing you ever learned by Googling yourself?" and "What fictional hero would you want to hang out with?" My answer to that last one:

"C.S. Forester's Captain Horatio Hornblower. I first read the Hornblower series at about nine years old, and I had such a crush on the moody swashbuckling Horatio that I was completely ruined for boys my own age. Not one boy in my fourth grade class had sunk a Spanish warship, escaped a French firing squad in a rowboat, or battled four enemy two-deckers to a standstill I was so disappointed."

For the rest of the Q&A, click here. And thanks for having me, Christine!
