Random Interview Saturday! Kellyn Roth

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.

It's winter and cold outside. Through the driving snow we hear sleighbells and barking. Borne by a batch of bouncing border collies comes Kellyn Roth!

Kellyn Roth

Author Bio

Kellyn Roth has been writing stories since she was seven, though she wrote quite a few (awful) poems and songs before that. She is the author of the Christian historical fiction novel, The Dressmaker's Secret, and of The Lady of the Vineyard, a romance/literary fiction novella set in 1938. You can find out more about her and her work at her personal blog, https://kellynroth.wordpress.com/.

The Interview

Favorite flavor (of what? EVERYTHING!)?

Hmm ... gosh, that's hard. I never realized before how what my favorite flavor is depends on what I'm eating! Well, I suppose I'm going to go with chocolate. Boring, I know, but boring is safe, and my tongue is an extremely delicate piece of skin that needs special care. #pickyeatersunite

When cats take over the world, how do you plan to win their good graces?

Take a bath. Once the dog-smell is gone, I'm sure they'll be lenient.

At least I can hope. I suppose if all else fails, I'd wave a ribbon in front of their noses and hope they had ADHD. My cat does. Most cats do in my limited experience.

Or maybe they're just pretending.

If you had to get stuck inside a television show, what would it be?

Gilmore Girls.

Reason #1: Stars Hollow. Enough said.
Reason #2: I appreciate Logan.
Reason #3: I have no other reasons. Despite being addicted to drama.

If you had a store, what would you sell?


What? I'm in this for the soda fountain, girl! Eesh, you have a filthy mind ...

If you had the honor of naming something really big (a country, a spaceship, a planet) what would you want it to be and what would you name it?

For a space ship, Chicken-with-Its-Head-Cut-Off. I'm not sure why, but it seems like a good idea to launch a machine into the empty void of space and give it a name like that. Besides, astronauts are a cocky bunch. It'd do them good to be a little more cautious.

No. I've never met an astronaut ...

And for countries and planets, invariably Kellynland. Because the universe needs more me ...

Tree House or Cave? And why?

Tree house. Because goblins. And Swiss Family Robinson.

What weather is your writing? A dark and stormy night? A sunshiny day?

It's a black and white day. Everything has suddenly reverted to the 1940s. Sure, it's cheerful and the morals are decent, but it's not in color, so ... ;)

Seriously, though, I'd say one of those sunny days when there isn't a cloud in the sky but it's rainy. Ever been in one or those? They're crazy. I think the wind is blowing the rain from clouds outside my field of vision, but it sure looks weird from inside the house ...

Sum up your life in five words and two punctuation marks.

I watch the world, thinking.

Yes, that really is my life! Except when I'm with my friends, but time with your friends doesn't count as 'life,' per se. It's more like ... time spent on a different planet. Or Los Vegas. And what happens on Mars, stays on Mars ...

If this question were any question in the world, what question would you want it to be and how would you answer it?

I'd love someone to ask me, "Gosh, Kellyn, how did you get so dang awesome!?" My answer would be, "First, the word you're looking for is 'amazing.' Second, I was born a princess. *drops mic*"

And ... I suppose I'd better go with something less conceited. How about, "Would you like some chocolate?" "Yes, yes I would."


  1. *pics up mic* *throws it at Kellyn* NO, YOU WERE BORN A QUEEN. LOL. ;D Fun interview, you two. Also, if cats took over the world... I'm starting a rebellion. See you on the flip side. ;D
    God bless!
