Interview Roulette: K.C. Faelan

Play along with K.C. Faelan!

  1. You can eat only one ice cream flavor for the rest of your life. Which is it?

I love dark chocolate ice cream, but I’d have to choose French Vanilla only because it would go best with various toppings. If I mixed enough chocolate syrup and chocolate chunks with it, I’d end up with chocolate ice cream anyway!

  1. What was your favorite school subject? Least favorite?

Science/Biology was my favorite. I majored in Life Science in junior college but switched to a different major for my four-year degree. I disliked History the most. Maybe because the teachers didn’t make history interesting. I found it boring and dry, and in college, I often fell asleep in class. I still passed because the professor taught directly from the text so I really didn’t have to pay attention.

  1. A genie pops up and offers to grant you one talent. What do you choose and why?

Perfect health for myself, and my husband, for the rest of our lives. Why? Because health problems can interfere in the smallest life events. Take a simple thing like allergies. I’m guessing most people have allergies so they can relate. This year has been a very bad year for allergies where I live because of the large amount of rain we received. With allergies, people deal with headaches, ear and sinus infections, sniffling, sneezing, and allergies exacerbate asthma in the people who have it. They can’t go camping or hiking if their breathing is severely affected. That is just one example of how one small health problem can escalate into something larger and then go on to curtail a person’s ability to enjoy life to the fullest.

  1. Write a haiku poem about your favorite beverage.

Here you go:

Lush, bright, strong,

Tea exhilarates

My senses.

  1. Which house did the sorting hat put you in?

This is a great question. I’m a big Harry Potter fan and belonged to an online group that sorted members with a long questionnaire. Other members would go over the answers and decide which house they thought the person belonged in. They sorted me into Ravenclaw. However, when I joined Pottermore, I took JKR’s quiz and was sorted into Slytherin. I was surprised, but after thinking about it, I wasn’t that surprised. When I was in the online HP group, the group held fun quarterly events and often the Snakes said I really belonged in Slytherin even though they knew I was in Ravenclaw. I don’t know if that means a Slytherin is better at spotting other snakes or the other houses are bad at it. Whatever reason, I think I’m a mixture of both, a Slytherclaw, but if I had to pick one absolute house, I’m probably more of a Ravenclaw.

  1. What is the oddest thing on your music playlist?

That’s a hard one because I hardly ever listen to music. Probably something humorous, like the Chipmunks singing The Christmas Song. I love Christmas music, that’s the one type of music I could play all year long.

  1. Are you a nerd and/or a geek? Provide evidence to support your answer.

Geek for sure. I tend to get absorbed in the enjoyment of projects or items. Currently my interest is Pokemon. But, I don’t pay attention to the stats, fighting moves, etc, which means I’m not a nerd. Geeks are supposed to be more outgoing and I’m not. That’s where I tend to fall into the nerd category, I like to spend time alone, with small doses of people interaction.

  1. Which of your characters would send you screaming out into the blizzard before the week was up?

The most obnoxious character I wrote was Mr. Trant, the hotel manager of the Astraea, in my novel, Top Floor. He’s a conniving brown-noser who’d happily stab a person in the back if he could gain anything from it. However, now that I think about it, I’d more likely try to find a way for him to get stranded outside in a blizzard rather than running outside myself.

I wrote Top Floor to a prompt for Goodreads 2015 Love is an Open Road event. It’s the first novel I wrote and I’m quite proud of it. The story came to me instantly with only a few scenes missing, I just had to write flesh it out. Top Floor is available free as a Goodreads download, however, I’m currently making extensive edits to it so a better version will be out early next year, at least that’s what I’m aiming for. I’ve learned a lot about writing since I wrote the story so I’m going back and polishing it up. No scenes will be added or changed, it’ll still be the same story, but better. Once I finish, I’ll send it on to my betas and once completed offer the ebook for free. I also plan to have print copies made available once I’m finished with everything.

Aligning North

 

Book blurb:

Blake Manning spends his summers in his favorite national park, Yosemite. He runs an outdoor adventure company with three friends. This year he and his BFF/business partner, Ali, will serve as guides for a hike over the Grand Traverse Trail. Blake will find it’s not nature or the wildlife that are most hazardous, but traversing the uncharted waters of a potential relationship with one of the hikers, Zac North, who doesn’t appear all that happy about being the object of Blake’s attention.

Stormy weather and stormier tempers keep all the hikers on their toes as Yosemite tests them, bringing some closer together…and breaking others apart.
