  2. I was born in New England, went to college in Wisconsin, but have lived in Spain most of my life.
  3. I don’t like dogs. At all.

  6. I won my first short story contest when I was 12 years old. Mine was the only entry.

  10. Slytherin and proud.
  11. I have a moderate form of misophonia (in which negative emotions like anger, fright, hatred, disgust are triggered by specific sounds).

Questions from Eve

  1. If you had two weeks and unlimited funds, what would be your dream vacation? A trip to Iceland (I’d say New Zealand, but the long flight isn’t quite worth it for me).
  2. What was one of your favorite books as a child? The Chronicles of Prydain, by Lloyd Alexander. They still are.
  3. What was one of your favorite recent reads? Recent reads? Stardust, by Neil Gaiman.
  4. What is your dream/life’s ambition? To work from home, write books, and live a simple, quiet life.
  5. What three things would indicate you’ve achieved your dream? Uhm…a solid home office, published books, and a simple, quiet life…right?
  6. What is your favorite board/card/casino game? Scrabble or Boggle, probably.
  7. Would you prefer camping in nature or staying at fine hotel in the city? Camping in nature.
  8. If you could write like any author, who would it be and why? Like myself. I don’t want to be a replica.
  9. If you could visit any historical time period, which would you choose and why? I’ll stay put, thanks. Time travel stresses me out.
  10. Romance or adventure? There’s a difference?
  11. What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream? Dulce de Leche for days!

  1. Good answers, Nate. Neil Gaiman’s is such a good writer; I LOVE The Graveyard Book. You should check out the inspirational commencement speech he gave. It is well worth watching.
    Okay, now that I am aware of the existence of misophonia, I am tempted to gauge my emotional reactions to sound (really). “Miss o phonia” is NOT that moment when your friend tosses you your cell phone and you miss.

    I’m curious…Do you speak Spanish and English without an accent?


    1. Ha! I see what you did there 😉 English is my first language, so no accent there. Some people say I have a tiny bit of an accent when I speak Spanish, but most don’t pick up on it (the more relaxed I am, the less it comes out).


  2. I don’t like dogs either. They’ve always annoyed me. =) Also, the fact that you like The Chronicles of Prydian put a huge smile on my face. I grew up on those and still love them. It always cracks me up when people talk about the Inklings and then have no idea who Lloyd Alexander is. Poor guy. =) Fun post! I’m looking forward to writing my answer post. Thanks for the tag!

  3. I can’t even believe you nominated me. 😀 I’m super surprised and flattered. I will be posting but it may take me a while to come up with answers. I get super embarrassed when posting information about myself. I’m curious as to why you don’t like dogs and how is Spain? My sister went to Barcelona before and sent me a postcard mentioning their were tons of dogs everywhere.


    1. It’s a fun way to get to know fellow bloggers a bit 🙂 I don’t like dogs for a variety of reasons. Mostly, in my opinion, they’re obnoxious and loud. Also, the hair and the slobber isn’t fun at all. Spain is great! I’ve lived here since I was four.
