Random Interview Saturday! Dana K. Ray


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.

The room explodes in a shower of glitter! Our next author has arrived. It's Dana K. Ray!

The Interview!

You are tasked with eliminating one letter of the alphabet. Which would it be and why?

Z. Because it’s just too hard to write in cursive. I mean, really, who thought that craziness up? Z= Z

If you could have any job in the world, what would it be?

Quality control taster at a Hershey factory. Who wouldn’t want to sit and eat chocolate all day long?

What is your ideal writing space?

Any place as long as I have my laptop, a hot mocha, Diet Coke, and very loud music!

Which of the following potions would you like to possess: a Love Potion, a Sleeping Potion, an Invisibility Potion, or Coffee?

Invisibility for sure, then after I took some, I’d find a few people to see what they really think about me, some famous people to see how they really live and well, to just pretend I was hanging out with them.

If you had a store, what would you sell?

Books, mochas and diet cokes. There’s really not much else, is there?

I know exercise is good for me, but it is not entertaining. What methods do you suggest for making workouts more fun?

Go into a fantasy world. Some of my best ideas come from walking and imagining scenes in my head.

You have to trade places with one of your characters for a day. Which and why?

Victoria in The Luciano Series, Absolution (book 1) Mercy (book 2). I mean, who wouldn’t want two hot Italians brothers loving you so much they are will to do anything for you?

If you had to board yourself up in a store to wait out the apocalypse, what store would you choose?

My first thought is a toy store like Toys R Us because that’d be so much fun!! But Starbucks would be the way to go. Coffee, snack food, free wifi, I’d be in heaven.

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

Name two things people don’t know about me.

I always felt odd because I always had movies playing in my head. I wasn’t sure if it was normal. I was a stay-at-home mom which gave me the chance to write my books down. The images are very vivid. I see the characters 3-D and in color but the fun of it, is I can change things. I can watch a scene and if I don’t like it, I mix it up. I do this until I love the scene then I go write it down.

I am an AVID college football fan!! I mean I do nothing on the weekends but watch or go to games during the season. I will take any free tickets. Email me at danakray@yahoo.com if you have some freebies I could have!
