This week on Romance Writers Weekly, Leslie Hachtel ask:
If you could ask any author (living or dead) one question, what would it be?
Did you link to me from A.S. Fenichel's blog? If not, be sure to hop all through the links today and visit her, too!
Holy cow, this is a hard topic today! One author? One question? How the heck I am I going to narrow it down?
Years ago (before e-readers) if I wanted to discover new authors I had to – gasp! – go to the library and browse through the shelves. While romance and mystery were always my go-to genres, I also made it a personal requirement to choose one biography and one classic novel. While I usually enjoyed the biographies, the classic was often disappointing. Maybe I'm not sophisticated enough, but most "classic" novels tend to be heavy reading, with depressing subjects, and while valuable in their own right, aren't necessarily something I want to cozy up with on a Saturday night. However, it was because of this pledge to myself that I discovered "Pride and Prejudice" and the other works of Jane Austen.
I've rhapsodised about Jane Austen's brilliance in other posts. But in regards to this week's topic, I think I know what question I would ask her:
"What do you think of Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy?"
I know, it's not really a writerly topic, but wouldn't it be fun to hear her take on this?
