Sensational 7 Q & A with Myra McEntire (Author of Hourglass)!
Have you ever wanted to know what it would be like to hang out with your favorite author(s)? In an attempt to get a better understanding of authors, my Sensational Seven Q & A takes a closer or more personal look at these authors to give you a glimpse of the personalities behind the writing of your favorite books.
“Talent alone cannot make a writer. There must be a man behind the book; a personality which, by birth and quality, is pledged to the doctrines there set forth, and which exists to see and state things so, and not otherwise.” By Ralph Waldo Emerson
Myra McEntire knows the words to every R and B hit of the last decade, but since she lives in the country music capital of America where her lyrical talents go sadly unappreciated, she chose to channel her mad word skills into creating sultry Southern timeslip novels.
But if you catch her at a signing, she can probably be convinced to rap with you anyway.
HOURGLASS is her first novel. It will be released June 14, 2011!
If you were given a chance to travel back in time, what year or place would you go / Why?
1816, to the Villa Diodati with Lord Byron, Percy Shelley, Mary Shelley and gang. Oh, to be a Romantic Poet!
Describe your novel in seven words or less?
Southern time travel with a snarky twist.
Please share with us about your favorite book and fictional crush to date?
Favorite Book: Wizard of Oz Fictional Crush: I have a thing for Holly Black's Cassel. Oh, and Sarah Rees Brennan's Nick.
If you could be any character in fiction, whom would you be / Why?
Hermione Granger. I'd love to live in that world, and to be as smart and honorable as she is.
If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see playthelead role as you/ Why?
Tina Fey. I think why should be obvious. (The snark and the glasses!)
If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be – please explain?
Occasionally Inappropriate - because it's true.
How would you describe yourself/life in seven words?
Crazy, hopeful, blessed, honest, loved, loving, and (trying to always be) kind.
**Is there any additional info you would like to share with your readers about what’s next for you and your books?**
I have just turned in the sequel to HOURGLASS, and I'm awaiting revisions! Brainstorming a few unrelated ideas as well!
Thanks for stopping by Myra!
