**AUTHOR PEEK** Interview with MICHELE CALLAHAN
I would like to introduce you to Michele Callahan, Wednesday’s Karen’s Killer Book Bench author of DESTINY TRILOGY, the powerful first three books of the erotic sci-fi romance series, The Ozera Wars. Today, she’s chosen to answer some interesting, and revealing, questions. Happy reading!
1. Have you ever been in trouble with the police?
Well, not technically. Other than speeding tickets. I was very close to being in trouble one night as a foolhardy teenager, but luckily my BFF was in the thick of it with me – and her dad was on the local police force. Those two cops debated in their squad car for what felt like hours, but then just sent us home. I was never SO glad her dad was a cop with a very unique last name in a small town. LOL. Close call!
2. Have you ever gotten into a bar fight?
Nope. I have never been big on bars – and my husband refuses to dance. (Bet you’ve never heard that one before.) Bars are always too noisy, too much smoke (in the old days), too much trouble looking for a place to play. I’m much happier at home with a bottle of wine and a few friends. I think every writer I’ve ever met was a bit of an introvert. I’m a nerd. I’d rather read than dance most of the time.
3. What is your biggest fear?
This one is easy these days – that something will happen to one of my kids. It doesn’t matter how old they are now. Don’t mess with my babies. :) I get mean quick.
4. What do you want your tombstone to say?
Awesome Mom, Great Friend, Loving Wife, Sister & Daughter. The rest of life is just noise and nerves. When push comes to shove, only a handful of things really, really matter to most people, and it’s usually our relationships with others.
5. If you had a superpower, what would it be?
Unfair. I have to pick ONE? Okay, okay…flying.
6. What secret talents do you have?
Secret talents, you say? Hmmm. If I tell, it won’t be a secret. I play piano, poorly. I write a mean book blurb, and I once taught cadaver lab (My degree is in Human Anatomy and Neurobiology). So, I know a lot of body part stuff…is that a talent, or just creepy? LOL.
7. Where do you want to visit that you haven’t been before?
The Pyramids, The Amazon Jungle, Russia, Scotland, Japan and Australia. (That should get me started.)
8. What is something you want to accomplish before you die?
I want to master the piano and swim with dolphins.
9. If you could have any accents from anywhere in the world, what would you choose?
Scottish or Irish. I love them both.
10. Do you have any scars? What are they from?
I ran into a real estate for sale sign during a rain storm when I was six years old and sliced open my right cheek. I still have that scar. Stupid sign.
11. What were you like as a child? Your favorite toy?
Me? I was really shy until about 6th grade. Then I got tired of worrying myself to death about what all the other kids thought of me and started doing and saying whatever I wanted. I was much happier then – and surprise! The other kids liked me better, too. Favorite toy? Really? A book. Not kidding. I chart my childhood memories based on what books I was reading at the time. My all time favorite was an old book called Snow White and Rose Red. The drawings were spectacular, the prince was a cursed bear in disguise, and the sisters were courageous. Loved that book.
12. Do you dream? Do you have any recurring dreams/nightmares?
Yes – all the time. One nightmare I had when I was in my early 20’s is the basis for my Chimera Series coming this summer. It was around 1990 and I was dreaming in a world that’s still probably 40-50 years ahead of us today. I’m odd, I know. But I still dream almost every night – sometimes here, sometimes in outer space.
Hope you all like my erotic sci-fi romp! For more books, visit my website at michelecallahan.com.
