“A handgun at two hundred feet is the same thing as crossing your fingers and making a wish.”
― Lee Child, A Wanted Man
Happy Monday everyone!
Well … we’re staying with the topic “authors”. But no fan mail. Question this week is, “what would you ask or tell one of your favourite authors if you had the chance?”
Another tricky one!
I’ve got a few favourite authors with whom I’d simply like to share a dinner and chit-chat the night away. The typical female thing – favourite hero, favourite book, what made you think of this story and that book etc.
But when it comes to “ask”, I’d go for authors who have written mysteries or crime. Lee Child comes to mind, I’d have heaps of questions about his research and ideas for Jack Reacher. I’m sure there are about 20 books, and each story is well researched. The ideas are brilliant, with great twists and mind-boggling endings!
Other authors would be Dan Brown – the idea of the Da Vinci Code – whether one likes the book or not – is unique.
There are many, many more crime authors I’d love to talk to, whether I’ve read their books or not, but the sheer idea of creating a mystery is simply impressive!
Which author would you like to talk to and why?
