I just realized I answered May's question....  OOPS.

Stephen King. I mean, who wouldn't want to peek inside his brain. Between writing, living and everything in between, I just know it would be epic. And maybe scary.  🙂

  6. I read all the Lemony Snicket book several years ago. It's a great book series! Have you watched the Netflix TV series?

    Stephen King would be an interesting author to interview.

  7. I used to LOVE reading Stephen King when I was younger but now I've moved towards paranormal romance.
    I suppose I'd love to meet/interview ALL of my go-to authors! Lol!
    Felicity Heaton, Teresa Gabelman and Dianne Duvall are top of my list though because I just can’t get enough of their stories. They all write female leads with the characteristics I admire; intelligence, resilience, self-reliance (they NEVER wait to be rescued), they have some form of humour be it dry, sarcastic or dirty and have loads of gumption. I want to know if they base their characters on an ideal or people they know. ;-)

  9. Yes! Stephen King, I mean have you ever thought that there are characters and story ideas he has thought of that did not make the cut. His brain and imagination are just brilliant. I agree, it could be quite frightening to know what is going on in his mind.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
