**AUTHOR PEEK** Interview with JM Kline
Editorial Note: I shouldn’t be surprised this rebellious author threw out my questions. She always did march to her own drum. (Shhh! Don’t tell her I’m liable to steal her interview questions! 🙂 ) You’re in for a holiday treat, my lovely readers!
Happy Monday everyone! I was given a list of interview questions, but many of you have already read my answers for those, so I decided to be a rebel! I hope this helps wake you up this Monday morning!
What do you think about when you’re alone in your car?
“Oh, shoot. Did I leave my kids at home alone?” Yeah, that’s right. I’m *never* alone. Sometimes I wake up early so I have some guaranteed time alone. 6:00 in the morning doesn’t look too bad when it’s the only time you get to yourself during the day! I try to use this time for writing, but until I get my pot of coffee (hey, it’s only a 5-cup pot!) I’m not terribly useful.
If you had to listen to one song over and over again for a whole day, what would it be?
Well, I tend to be forced to listen to all the baby songs over and over again, so I don’t think anything can be quite as irritating as that gets. BUT I pretty much adore everything by Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers (fka The Refreshments) so I’d probably pick one of those.
If it’s a writing day, it’d be “King of the Hill” just because it has no words. I can’t imagine what that day of writing would look like, but I can tell you it’d be interesting. If it’s a non-writing day, either “Hello New Day” or “Banditos.”
Pick two celebrities to be your parents.
This is a tough one. I already have one celebrity (waves to Karen Docter) but I think I’ll choose two new ones. Because I can.
Now, I’m sure some people would choose hot celebrities, but I don’t want to be crushing on my parents. That’s kinda icky. I’ve always thought that Tommy Lee Jones would be a pretty cool dad. He’s sarcastic, and probably a bit of a pain in the butt, especially for a teen. But he’s still fun enough that it wouldn’t be too bad. For a mom, I’d have to choose Paula Deen. Because, well…butter. AmIRight??? Plus, I really want her to teach me how to do that awesome flippy hair.
Tell me about your ideal reader.
The one who likes my book! No, seriously though. I don’t think I have an “ideal” age, gender, whatever when I’m writing. I’m telling my characters’ stories, and I can only hope that most people can relate with some part of that. The first two books in my series have female main characters, but the third will follow the newest of their trio, a sweet young man. I’m sure that many people who read my series will be girls, young and young-at-heart, but I do hope that the story can appeal to everyone.
What’s your favorite meal of the day?
Breakfast! It’s amazing! I’ve had days when breakfast food is all I eat all day. My two-year-old doesn’t seem to mind, and everyone else only enjoys Breakfast-For-Dinner, so they don’t get bored. Eggs and sausage and toast and waffles and syrup and…okay, I think that’s all for now! I hear my waffle iron begging for me to use it. Thank you for reading!
