The weirdest thing happened. We got noticed. Me and Erin. By another blogger. I’m stunned. Who would think anyone would be interest in our inane ramblings. Anyway, it turns out that people actually read this stuff. And one of those readers even wants to do a spotlight on us and on Gwynneth White, the author who writes our stories. As you can guess, Erin and Gwynneth are over the moon. Me? I’m just speechless that anyone would care. Erin is glaring at me. I bet she’s wishing she was writing this post - she’d give me hell for my lack of belief.
Anyway, back to the spotlight. Danica Page over at Taking it One Page At A Time http://danicapage.blogspot.com will featuring us on her author’s spotlight. Check it out and you'll find answers to all the questions you've ever wanted to know about us. And, what's more, Danica's got a great blog. Well worth a visit in it's own right.
One of the things Danica wanted to know was who my favourite author is. That’s a no-brainer right there. Orson Scott Card. Who else writes the coolest sci-fi? The man’s a genius. He can get into a character's head like no one else I know. And he can actually see into the future. No kidding. Ender’s Game was written in 1985 – nine years before I was even born – but in it Card wrote about personal computers in every home, linked to a system almost like the internet. His characters even wrote blogs and joined chat rooms – years before anyone had even heard of those concepts.
Those who don’t like sci-fi still have plenty to choose from. Card has written well over a hundred books, plays, poetry anthologies, even some books on how to write. Talk about prolific. And diverse. He has a series out on the women from Genesis in the Old Testament. Rebecca, Sarah, Leah and Rachel. I don’t claim to have read those – after all, I am a guy. But what I do like is that he’s hot on series, so you can fall in love with a character and follow him for years of his life. Next time I write, I’ll tell you about Ender’s Game - one of my favourite books of all time.
