Book Blogger Hop!

Happy Friday! It's time for the Book Blogger Hop! Usually hosted by Jennifer at Crazy For Books, this week it is hosted by Lori at Lori's Reading Corner. Hop on over, check out the rules, and link up!

This week's question is: Who is the one author that you are dying to meet?

My answer: Only one? Really? Well, I've never been one to follow the rules, so I've picked two.

Alexander McCall Smith. I love the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency and I would love to discuss the series with him. Also, he was born in Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) and taught at the University of Botswana and I would love to hear about his experience living in Africa and how it influenced him to write the series.
Sophie Kinsella. I just love her books and think she would be so much fun to hang out with and talk chick lit with.

Which author would you like to meet? Have you met any authors before?

  9. Wow! Every answer I’ve read is a great one. Some have been surprising, too.

    The one author I have to meet before I die? Tricky question! It took me a long time – much longer than usual – to come up with an answer.

    Who’s that author I’m dying to meet?

  12. I Love Alexander McCall Smith. I've read every series he's written. A writer, a musician and a medical man, I bet he would be fascinating company. Great choice. I'm following you now.

  14. I"ve been trying to make a point to attend author events. They are lots of fun and it's good to put a real person to the name on the cover.

    now to chia, I am going to try adding a bit to our morning smoothie. I make a full blender and divide it for the four of us.
