This is an A.A. Forringer rarity, a person I know in person and I have contact with on an almost daily basis. Ms. Martian and I work together and soon after I started working with her I discovered she is also a writer. She is highly intelligent, imaginative and loves her coffee. I hope you enjoy the interview, and like I told her, after my books are as popular as J.K. Rowling she can point to this interview as proof that she knew me back when I was an unknown (of course the reverse could be said if she gets successful first and I am still an unknown).
French fries- Shoestring, steak, curly, crinkle cut..? What condiment(s) on them?
I rarely eat fries, but when I do, I like crinkle cut if I can get ’em.
How long have you been creating and why?
I’ve been creating since I was a child. I love acting, drawing, writing, crafting. I’ve done at least one since I could walk and talk.
What odor to you is the most pleasant?
I think pizza. Yes, pizza is the best smell.
Favorite things to read? What genre?
I enjoy Young Adult, classics and fantasy.
A boat you are riding in is about to capsize what did you do to contribute to this?
There was most likely a spider in the boat or a flying insect literally ATTACKED me, so naturally my only defense was the flail my arms and scream, “KILL IT! KILL IT!”
What is the best thing about creating?
I think it’s the satisfaction of getting what’s in my head out.
How much ground can a ground hog, hog, if a ground hog could hog ground?
What is the worst thing about being a creative personality?
Along the same lines as the best thing about creating, the worst is when what’s in your head doesn’t translate the same when it’s out in the world, either when other people don’t get it or when I am personally not satisfied with what I created.
If you could force one famous person to consume your stories who would you force, and how much would you force them to consume?
Well, since I only have one completed book, they wouldn’t have to consume much. I would probably just be thrilled to have any famous author read and like my book, but most of my favorite authors are dead.
How far do you hope your creating takes you?
I am just happy when someone reads my book and has nice things to say about it. I am not out for fame and fortune with my writing, art, or acting. I do all those things for the pure joy it brings me.
