This is cool! I want to be an author one day, so reading the authors' answers are always fun. :)
Lauren, can we get a (as Len F puts it) Rick Chat?
Okay, questions for Tombsquest author Michael Norththrop! (Some are random, some aren't. Obviously I don't expect all of them to be answers.)
1. Have you read Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, and/or Heroes of Olympus? If so, which series is your favorite and why? What about characters-which is your favorite and why?
2. How long have you wanted to be an author?
3. What is your advice for people who want to be an author?
4. Did you get rejected a lot before a book was accepted for publication? If so, how many times were you denied?
5. Well, as moderator Lauren said, have you ever been to Egypt? I love Egypt--okay, correct. I've never been there before, but I love reading about it and hope to go there one day.
6. What jobs did you consider other than being an author?
7. What was your favorite thing about writing TombQuest, Books of the Dead? (I'm going to definitely read it!)
8. What were your best and worst subjects in school?
9. What is your favorite part about writing?
10. When you hear your favorite book is being turned into a movie, what are your thoughts? (I got real excited when I saw the Harry Potter's and Percy Jackson's.) Also, have you ever wanted to have one of your books turned into a movie?
