Author Interview – Lynne Cantwell

If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future? I’d go back to the Renaissance.  I love the music of that time.  But before I got into the time machine, I’d want a guarantee that I’d be able to come home!  With my luck, I’d be stuck in some hovel, tending a passel of kids, instead of living as a fine lady in a castle.
If you could invite any 5 people to dinner who would you choose? Some of my college friends.  I’ve lost touch with almost all of them over the years.  It would be nice to see them again.
If you were stranded on a desert island what 3 things would you want with you? Notebooks and pens, knitting needles and yarn, and sunblock.  Okay, so that’s three groups of things…
What is one book everyone should read? I don’t know that I can recommend a single book.  I’ve been known to recommend Stephen R. Donaldson’s Lord Foul’s Bane, but a lot of people can’t get past the rape that occurs within the first few chapters.  They refuse to try to understand why it’s necessary to the plot.  So I’ve kind of given up on book recommendations.
If you were a superhero what would your name be? When I was in college, majoring in journalism, I sometimes referred to myself as Ace Deadline.  That’s as good a name as any.
If you could have any superpower what would you choose? Ace Deadline’s superpower would have to be the ability to whip out deathless prose in the blink of an eye – and get paid well for it!
What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? It varies.  Right now, I could go for some chocolate mint chip.
If you could meet one person who has died who would you choose? Louisa May Alcott.  I would enjoy comparing notes with her about making a living as a writer, then and now.
What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast? I make a pretty good breakfast burrito – scrambled eggs, leftover brown rice, salsa and shredded cheese in a multigrain tortilla.
Night owl, or early bird? Night owl, for sure.  I think people who say they love getting up at the crack of dawn are lying.
One food you would never eat? Liver.  Eww.  Thanks, but no.
Pet Peeves? I have a ton of writing-related pet peeves.  One of the biggest is books that haven’t been copy-edited properly.
Skittles or M&Ms? Today, almond M&Ms.
