The H. L. Burke Random Interview is not like other interviews. The questions are all over the place. They have no purpose. Their purpose is their lack of purpose.There are nine questions because cats, but these nine questions are subject to change without notice, so the questions one person answers may not be the questions answered by the next author.
I spy with my little eye ... N. A. Cauldron, come to answer questions!
N. A. Cauldron grew up on the outskirts of modern Cupola. As a young child, she enjoyed listening to the tales told of Cupolian's history. This ultimately led to a successful career as a research historian and her recent authorship of historical fiction. She is an avid herbologist, and spends her free time hunting out and collecting rare herbs for her potion making. She is especially fond of the snaggled tooth humpmoss, and has been known to spend weeks at a time on fungal expeditions.
You can time travel in an oddly specific way that only allows you to visit other authors. Where do you go and what do you do? I would like to go back to the Royal Wizards who wrote the journal. I have a lot of questions for them. Sum up your life in five words and two punctuation marks. So confused! What happens next? What weather is your writing? A dark and stormy night? A sunshiny day? Wow-it really varies! I actually jump around from horrible storms to glorious beaches. It depends on what mood I'm in. Oddly though, I can't help but add a ray of sunshine to every scene one way or another, usually in the form of laughing rain, resulting in pretty rainbows. If you had to build a house without conventional materials, what unconventional materials would you use? (Gingerbread is inadvisable because it attracts snacking children) I've always wanted a cob house, but I guess that's conventional. Same for a yurt. Hmmm.... I have to have my privacy, so glass is out. I would say puppies, but that sounds horrible, when I really just mean cute fluffy walls. So I'll go with fairy wings. They're strong, airy, and extremely sturdy. Although SEUMTNABP (the Society for Ethical Use of Magickind and Their Nolonger Attached Body Parts) may have a problem with that. Unless puppies are OK, and then I'll make my house out of puppies. Who is your fictional best friend and what activities do you choose to do together? Scrooge McDuck-that man is a hoot! And we do all sorts of things together while chasing his nephews and trying to make more money. He also inadvertently teaches me how to make millions. You have to trade places with one of your characters for a day. Which and why? Actually, I'm thinking Brutus. He knows all the Queen's secrets. And since it's only for a day, surely I could avoid doing anything too terrible! If you could enter any fictional world, which would you choose? Does this have to be just in the land of books? Because I would really love to be on the crew of Voyager. But if it's just in the realm of literature, then I would choose the land from Inside the Wing-Pits of Dragons by Nicholas Speutum. But it's a Cupolian novel, so I doubt many of your earth readers have heard of it. Congratulations! You are now president of this blog post. What's your first executive order? Wow-um, bring me a cookie and some tea! And thanks! If this question were any question in the world, what question would you want it to be and how would you answer it?
What is next to you right now? Gizmo, one mess of a dog. Well, he was. But now that I've gone back over this it's Tootsie and Priscilla, another mess of a dog and a pointless cat.
I am on Amazon, Goodreads, Bookbub, Twitter, and more. I suggest readers go to http://nacauldron.com/ where they can find links to all of these (in the "About" section) and every place that my book (s) can be bought (in the "Books" sections). (Although I presently only have one book for sale, I am working on the second one. When it is finished, it will be listed there as well.)
