HEIDI'S PICK SIX - Susanne Saville

HEIDI'S PICK SIX
1. Which of your characters is your favorite?
2. Tell me about your travels.

3. Coffee, tea, or milk?
(evil laugh) Coffee, of course. Always coffee. Forever coffee. Although I do like English Breakfast and Glengettie tea. And I must have milk in both my tea and my coffee. So maybe just pour all three into a big swimming pool and I'll float about in them.


4. What else can you do besides write?
Catalog. Used as a verb. I could create both Library of Congress and Dewey Decimal numbers for books. You want travel to Britain? That's 914. Biography? 921. I think movies are 798.... It's a useless talent now because most cataloging is done by a central source these days and distributed by computer, instead of each library having its own cataloger. So I'm rusty now.


5. Who are you reading right now?

6. Pop culture or academia?
I studied pop culture when I was part of academia. Seriously. Ask about my paper on Disney. Ask about my book on how pug dogs saved civilization. No, on the other hand, don't get me started... :)


7. What is the toughest scene you ever wrote?
8. Where do you find your inspirations to write?

9. Food you could eat everyday.
Chocolate. Especially Cadbury or Galaxy chocolate. I could live on chocolate. Cadbury Fruit & Nut bar - there's my protein and vitamins for the day. Think all I'd have to worry about would be scurvy. I wonder if the orange Aero bar has Vitamin C?


10. Are you into sports or other physical activities?
Horseback riding. I love horseback riding - Western style. I'm not so good at English style.

If you mean *watching* sports, then Red Sox. Go Red Sox Nation! :)


11. What kind of music speaks to you?
12. Do you outline your stories or do they just take you along for the ride?

13. Celebrity crush.
John Barrowman. Totally John Barrowman. And I actually got his autograph - squeeeeee!!!! He is a sweetheart - and very patient with fans who go completely blank and can't think of anything intelligent to say. (Yes, that would be me.)


14. Who are the biggest influences on your work?
15. Do you still watch cartoons?


Susanne Saville has earned a Master's Degree in History and a second Master's Degree in Library Science. The casual observer might suppose that this primarily qualifies her to dispense fries at fast-food restaurants. However, Ms. Saville has worked as a Reference Librarian in California and as a History Instructor at Georgia Military College. She currently resides in New England and, along with writing, delights in researching, spending quality time with her cats, and eating fries at fast-food restaurants. Susanne's most recent novel is The Secret Hunter.
