Author Interview – Elyse Douglas

If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future?

Doug:  Most certainly the future.

Elyse:  Most certainly the past.  I would like to experience the silence and stillness of NYC before electricity and cars were invented.

If you could invite any 5 people to dinner who would you choose?

Doug:  Benjamin Franklin, William Shakespeare, Dolly Madison, Abigail Adams and St. Teresa of Avila.

Elyse:  Emily Dickinson, Virginia Woolf, Mary Oliver, William Butler Yeats, and Richard Wilbur.

If you were stranded on a desert island what 3 things would you want with you?

Doug:  A lot of Balance Power bars, The Bhagavad-Gita and Emily Dickinson’s poems.

Elyse:  Assuming I had enough food and water, I’d go for the complete works of Shakespeare, a big, fat notebook, and enough pens to last a lifetime.

What is one book everyone should read?

Doug:  The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck

Elyse:  The essay What I Believe by E.M. Forster.

If you could have any superpower what would you choose?

Doug: Flight.

Elyse:  The ability to inculcate compassion.

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Doug:  Definitely vanilla.  It’s smooth, it’s simple, it’s easy to eat.

Elyse:  Doug has sung the praises of vanilla ice cream for so long that he’s made me a convert.  But of course, I top it with chocolate sauce, whipped cream, walnuts, and cookie pieces.

What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast?

Doug: A big ole New York City Bagel.

Elyse:  Peach pancakes with real maple syrup and lots of butter.

Night owl, or early bird?

Doug: I can hoot or tweet.  Hooting is more natural.

Elyse: Definitely a night owl.

Pet Peeves?

Doug:  Bad music pumped into TV news, restaurants, TV ads and retail stores.

Elyse:  Bad food prepared badly.  That includes most fast food.

Skittles or M&Ms?

Both:  Definitely M&Ms
