Hi, Mr. Northrop!

 

-Do you think it's harder to be the only author to write a multiplatform series singlehandedly?

 

-Is singlehandedly actually a word? :)

 

-Summarize the game's main storyline.

 

-Have you ever seen actual Egyptian artifacts?

 

-Which character is your favorite to write about?

 

-What is your Spirit Animal?

 

-What is your Cahill branch?

 

-What is your Hogwarts house?

 

-Would you be a Hystorian or SQ?

 

-Who is your role model?

 

-So far, which TombQuest book has been your favorite to write?

 

Thanks!

Beth: I want to be an author and so I love these author chats; thanks so much for taking the time to do set them up for us, and thanks to the authors themselves for taking the time to participate in them. :)

 

Hello Mr. Northrop, I'm Delaney, and here are my (many) questions for you (I don't expect them all to be answered, but I'm curious and decided, "why not post them all and see which ones, if any, get answered?") :

 

1. What is your advice for hopeful authors?

 

2. Have you been rejected before in writing, and if so, how did you deal with this?

 

3. What is your favorite type of story character? (I love the Percy Jackson characters because they're kids who people can relate to.)

 

4. Do you like when your favorite books are turned into movies?

 

5. If you weren't an author, what job do you think you might have?

 

6. Where do you, as an author, get inspiration from?

 

7. What do you think the most important thing is to keep in mind when you are writing a story of any kind?

 

8. What advice would you have for creating characters in a new story?

 

9. What is your favorite book and why?

 

10. Which authors (and other people who aren't authors) do you look up to, and why?

 

11. Do you have a very inspirational quote that you love?

 

12. What do you do when you can picture a scene in your mind, and can't find the words to describe it on paper?

 

13. How much research do you do when writing a story (example being different places in the world, different creatures, etc)?

 

14. What's the hardest part of writing for you and why? What's the easiest?

 

15. What do you do when people tell you they don't like what you've written, but you yourself do like it?

Hi Mr.Northrop, it's nice that you are answering our questions and chatting with us. Here are my questions:

 

What is your favorite type of mythology? Greek, Roman, etc.

What inspired you to be an author?

Did you originally want to be an author?

What is your favorite book?

What advice do you have for those who wish to be an author when they grow up?

 

That's all I really have, thank you!

YES! I'm Hufflepuff too! I found out a ton of well-known (Harry Potter) characters that were in Hufflepuff. (Including the founder of Hogsmeade.) I feel like Hufflepuff is all the houses combined--they can be brave like Gryffindor, smart like Ravenclaw, and kind; and also a bit like Slytherin too. Just look at Cedric Diggory--he was a Hufflepuff, and he was a hero, and a good person.

I for one am proud to be a Hufflepuff. :)

A sports writer? That's pretty cool, and you still got to write.

 

Awesome, I love poetry, I write poems all the time. :)

 

That's awesome advice for future authors, thanks for answering that. And that's great about the editors, too. :)

 

"Some gummy bears are gonna die." lol I love gummy bears too. And Skittles.

 

. . . sugar in another form? What about . . . Peeps? The sugar-coated marshmallow ducks? That's practically just sugar. XD

 

That great advice about when you're frustrated with writing and also the advice where you talked about the outline of a story and staying faithful to the characters.

 

 

Thanks for taking the time to do the author Q&A for us, it was super fun to watch, and I always get lots of advice from watching them and hearing what real authors say. :)
