Taking a quick poll here. Who here almost forgot Author Guess Who existed? I didn't, and I've been busy collecting interviews over the past few weeks. For those that forgot what this is or are new to the GA community, this is a little interview game. I have a little list of questions for a mystery author/community member, and using their responses, your job is to figure out who it is! You're given two weeks to put your guesses in before the reveal is posted. Don't be afraid to point fingers or do a deep-dive research expedition. This game isn't just for fun. It's also a spotlight for authors who want a wee bit of publicity. During the reveal, they get to choose three of their posted stories to be featured on the site!
Let's see what our mystery author of the month has to say...
What is one thing that most GA members might not know about you?
I finished my education without any qualifications or exam passes, or as some would say I never graduated. The few qualifications I hold were gained through work.
You just walked into a state-of-the-art kitchen with a magical pantry, filled to the brim with every known ingredient. What are you cooking for yourself?
Bread, what can I say? I'm a person with simple tastes and the smell of freshly baked bread brings back good memories and helps me to relax.
What prompted you to write your first story?
I don't really know. I woke up one morning and felt like I had to write, so I did. It felt like someone else was writing, not me.
Do you have a significant other?
Not at this moment in time. I've been in a couple of relationships that have ended badly and left me feeling wary of others. I've recently started to get to know someone, so who knows? Maybe that could change.
You're stuck on an island. You're allowed one book, one food item, and one beverage. What are they?
That depends on how long I'd be there. If it's for a long time I would want a good survival book, corn because I can eat it and/or grow more and coffee. Of course, the last two would need me to find a water source.
If you could meet one person, living or dead, who would it be?
Nobody famous. I'd like to meet my uncle, he died before I was born and my Dad often spoke about him. I'd love to hear his version of the high-jinx they used to get up to.
Are you a dog or cat person?
Due to circumstances I don't have any pets, but out of the two I'm definitely a dog person.
What's something on your bucket list?
I've never really thought about it. It would be nice to travel more than I'm currently able to so a round the world trip could appeal. But more realistic for me would be to move out of the city allowing me to have horses, but as I haven't ridden since childhood I'd need riding lessons first.
Hey, how about that? Teleportation was just invented. Where's the first place you're going? Don't worry, the purple portal pad is totally safe.
Vancouver, that's where my godmother lives. I've been there once and would love to go back there, it felt like a welcoming place to be.
Is there a fictional character you look up to? Who is it?
I admire the character Jethro Gibbs from NCIS. The flawed character has faced many personal setbacks, yet still manages to carry on with life and lend support to others. If admiration is looking up to someone then it is Jethro.
What is your favorite movie/television show?
That's easy, my favourite TV show is NCIS and similar programs. Favourite movie is anything in the Marvel Avengers franchise.
What is your spirit animal?
Maybe an eagle, I think I'd enjoy the freedom that comes with being able to fly high and swoop down fast.
Which actor/actress would you like to see portray you in this year's newest documentary blockbuster?
Taron Egerton, just because I think he's a good-looking hunk.
When you go on vacation/holiday, when do you pack your suitcase? The night before, a few hours before the plane takes off?
I don't travel much, I'm more of a homebody. When I do travel I'm always packed way ahead of time, I like to be organised.
What would you say is your greatest accomplishment?
That's not really easy to answer so I'll say writing anything that receives a good review. I don't consider myself to be a writer so the reviews mean a lot to me.
And there we go! Y'all have two weeks to figure out who this mystery author could possibly be!
In the meantime, did you know any author can participate in this game? Holy smokes, you didn't? Well, now you do! Shoot me a PM if you're interested in answering some silly questions. I'll be the only person that will know you are the mystery author [unless pesky admins take a sneak peak]. As a reward for participating, you'll be featured on the site during the reveal!
Good luck, folks!
