Random Interview Saturday! Ruth O'Neil


DISCLAIMER


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.


Today we welcome author Ruth O'Neil. Let's see if she brought us any tasty answers to snack on.

The Interview!



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

Duh! Feed them. That's the way I get myself in the good graces of people. Who doesn't like a good cat chow?


Describe your life (or writing) as a film genre.

Film noir comedy. Is there such a genre? Life is crazy, and I sometimes feel as if there is an over-the-top narrator always nearby, giving a play-by-play of my life.




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

Probably Little House On the Prairie. Some days I long for a simpler life. Maybe I would get more writing done if there weren't so many distractions. Maybe.


If I were to invite you over, what snacks would you bring, keeping in mind that fruit and dried fruit are not snacks?

A snack in my mind is actually more like a meal. My "snacks" would include barbecue ribs, chicken wings, crab legs, brownies, chocolate chip cookies, and goldfish. I'm obviously not on a diet. Yes, I like messy foods. And I need the goldfish to go with my dessert – you know, that sweet and salty thing. Oh, and I can't forget something to wash all down with. Pepsi. Real Pepsi. Not diet.


If you could enter any fictional world, which would you choose?

I would probably make up my own world. I would want everything to be the way I want it. If a person annoys me, I can kick them out. And no, I don't have control issues… Ok, maybe I do.


Heads or Tails?

Heads. Heads are smarter than tails, and tails can't read books.


If you could combine any two animals to make a hybrid, what would they be?


Horse and a bird. Oh, wait. Someone already did that. It's a Pegasus. Let me think… Hmmm…


What method do you suggest for dealing with dragons?

Put them to good use by giving them a job. Use them to fix your "snacks" from question four. Ribs and wings are great on the grill.



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

Would you like to be given $10 million tax-free every year for the rest of your life? Why yes, yes I would!
