Book Blogger Hop - Which author would you like to interview?

This week's question (17th - 23rd May 2019) is:
Which author would you most like to interview, and why? (submitted by Nicki @ Nicki J. Markus/Asta Idonea


Another tricky question here because I'm not sure there are any particular authors I would like to interview. I enjoy reading question and answer segments on blog tour posts, especially ones that give me insights into the various ways authors go about creating their works, however generally I prefer to simply experience their resultant books without knowing much (if anything) about the specific person behind each pen.


The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer's permission, Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the meme on February 15, 2013.

Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

  1. I do have one author that I would like to ask questions but only because she writes about Amish and I don't know anything about them. So it is just curiosity (that pretty much I could search for myself). But to say the truth I don't read interviews, it's not my thing, I prefer reading books and knowing an author thru her/his books.

    1. I'm not sure if I've read any Amish novels. It's a fascinating lifestyle

    2. Yes it is! And yes, Linda Castillo is the author of these novels I was talking about ;)

  2. I'm not really that interested in meeting authors to be honest and it's not like they are going to travel to my town anyway! If I ever got to talk to JK Rowling or GRRM I'd quiz them about all aspects of Harry Potter and ASOI&F!

    1. The question I'd ask them would be basically unanswerable. 'How did you imagine all that', actually meaning 'tell me how I can be as imaginative as you'!

  3. I have always wanted to interview J.K Rowlings, there is so much about the Harry Potter and the Fantastic Beasts series I want to know from her. I wish some day I get a chance to actually interview her!

  4. I'm not sure I would want to interview anyone. I like reading others interviews but I doubt I would know what to ask.

    1. I know when I meet people IRL I swiftly get completely tongue tied. Just embarrassing all round!

  5. I'm kind of like that too. It's nice to meet authors and have interviews with them on my blog or read other bloggers interviews but I couldn't say right now who I would choose. Maybe I'm just not ecstatic by any particular book series right now. Or maybe I wouldn't know what to say.

    1. I'd probably blurt out the wrong thing and upset them anyway!

  6. My favourite genre is paranormal romance and so I'd like to find out more about ALL of my go-to authors! Lol!
    Felicity Heaton, Teresa Gabelman and Dianne Duvall are top of my list though because I just can’t get enough of their stories. They all write female leads with the characteristics I admire; intelligence, resilience, self-reliance (they NEVER wait to be rescued), they have some form of humour be it dry, sarcastic or dirty and have loads of gumption.

    1. I've hardly read any paranormal romance, but I'm liking the heroines you describe!

  7. I too had a difficult time with this one, but I began thinking of those times that I finished reading the book and felt as though I wanted to know more about a character or a person int he story. Maybe, you may just want to know why he or she felt led to write an ending to a story?

    1. I'm often surprised by how many authors say their characters led them to a different ending than the one they originally envisaged
