Top 10 Questions I Would Ask My Favorite Authors (Living and Dead)
Right so I’m being a bit biased here in asking him two questions but he also wrote one of my favorite classics and made me not give up on the classic Lit genre so…
Ques 1 “How did you go about writing The Count of Monte Cristo?” The Count of Monte Cristo is my favorite classic read, so hearing how did the story come to life from Dumas himself would’ve been a real treat!
Ques 2 “Did you have any other alternate endings for The Count of Monte Cristo?” The story has gone in so many ways I’m sure he must have had more than one ending and I would’ve loved to see those.

Ques 3 “What is the one piece of wisdom you would give me?” Apart from being a diplomat he was an intellectual thinker and a poet, one of my favorite lines of him is:
When the wound is tired of crying
It will start to sing.”
Ques 4 “Do you put cream first one the scone or the jam?” I’m curious and this is a very important question mind you.
Ques 5 “If you can revive one myth, what or who would it be?” Her tales are always whimsical and fairytale-like, so I’ve always wanted to know her inspirations and influences from the mythological and make belief world.
Ques 6 “Would you ever write a non fantasy book?” She did write one of my favorite heist novels so I wonder how she would fare with a realistic thriller book.
Sarah J Mass
Ques 7 “Are you interested in exploring other mythology or fantasy elements other than Fae?” SJM is a great fantasy writer, she has an amazing ability to maintain interest and suspense within her books so I’m interested to see if she ever gave it thought to write something different.
Ques 8 “What’s your fear?” It would be interesting to find out what it is from the master of children’s horror (he gave me lots of scares but what the hell his books were the best!)
Ques 9 “How do you have the ability to write up happy endings without feeling repetitive or too “unrealistic”? I think with happy endings the case is, you might end up getting tired of them because they’re just not real life. And Dessen to still write up the fluffiest and cutest of them!
A. A. Milne
Ques 10 “Can you sign all of my Winnie the Pooh copies”? Fav childhood book! If I could get him alive I would definitely get his autograph.
