My First Author Interview

Hi, friends.

I invite you to visit my first author interview HERE.

A teaser-snippet follows.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What's your favorite fruit? I can’t explain it, but I’m drawn to long, hard bananas.

What's the most blatant lie you've ever told? That I’ve never told a lie. 
 
What is the most demeaning thing said about you as a writer? My work’s been called “chick-lit,” yet at least half of my readers are men. I like to think of myself as the anti-chick-litter. 
 
Are there any occupational hazards to being a novelist? The relentless paparazzi. I wish I had my privacy back. Otherwise, I can’t think of any. 
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Happy spring! Is it raining there too? Regardless, I hope the week is treating you well.

Thanks, as always, for stopping by.

  1. Nice interview, Robyn! If I didn't know you better I'd think some of your replies were facetious. Hard bananas are usually raw, which makes them unpalatable.

  3. GB, it's a good thing you don't know me better. Wink. And don't be so sure about hard bananas.

    Hahaha, Pat, I didn't mean to. Or did I?

  4. Great. Now I can't look at the bananas in quite the same way.

  5. I'm going to check this out right away Robyn because I absolutely love the teaser. Hmm, I wonder why banana came to your head haha! Congratulations on the interview, we're all proud of your writing accomplishments to date on here.

  8. Al, I'm sorry. I can't look at them the same either, and I've never eaten a piece of fruit so fast.

    Yeamie, you're sweet. I always appreciate your support. Thank you.

    Yvonne, girlfriend, I'm glad you liked that one. Thanks.

    Alex, I'm sorry. I don't know what went wrong. Thank you for reading the interview and trying to leave a comment.

  12. Not sure I'll ever be able to view bananas the same again.

  14. The paparazzi wants to hang out with someone that doesn't lie. They hardly ever get to do that.

  15. Great interview. If you want to send some of that paparazzi over this way, I don't have nearly enough unflattering photos of myself shopping at Walmart in my sweatpants.

    Oh, and you may not be Carrie Bradshaw, but you also don't look like a horse, so that's a plus, right?

  16. Everybody lies, and I'm pretty sure everyone denies it at times too. Fun post, Robyn:)

  17. MsA, we're getting the sun now too. Yay.

    EmptyNest, I hope so too. I mean, yes. It will. I'll finish it some day soon-ish. PS I didn't notice the typo. I'd hate to find out how many typos I've made in blog comments alone.

    John, sorry to ruin the fruit for you.

    My Journey, thanks so much.

    Cheryl, good point. Thank you. I should be more appreciative of them.

    BnB, that's funny. You're not the first to say that Sarah JP looks like a horse. I guess I can see that, but I still think she's gorgeous. At any rate, thank you for telling me I don't look like a horse. It IS a plus.

    Mail4Rosey, I appreciate your visit and comment. Thank you.

    MJ, thank you. Yes, it's not only the politicians that tell lies.

  18. Did you really say 'chick litter"? I'm gonna have to remember that one.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Farawayeyes, yeah, but I'm not talking about Judy Blume (she's a heroine and a genius) or any of my blog friends who write chick-lit. Gulp. I'm only referring to all of THE OTHERS who write chick-lit. Phew. Close call!

    LD, you're great. Thank you.

  20. Good interview!
    My copy of your book should be arriving by early next week.
    I am looking forward to reading it.

  21. Or bend over next to them.
    Sneaky bananas.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Awesome interview....you had me at banana.
    ;0P
    Blessings, Joanne

  23. Robyn, I think you should do a Justin Bieber on the pesky papparazzi and break their cameras over their heads, or maybe mash bananas up their noses. Then sweep away, pretty nose in air, uttering entrancing bits of fibs...

  24. "Anti-chick-litter"! That's a riot! :-D

    ReplyDelete
  25. Great interview, Robyn! Anti-chick-litter totally cracks me up. Congratulations on Just the Right Time!

  26. Ruth, thanks so much.

    Al, I'm extra careful about every movement when in the presence of bananas these days.

    Joanne, thank you kindly.

    Margaret, I really like your suggestion. I flip the birdie and shout obscenities too, ala Bieber.

    Lexa and Julie, thank you. "Litter" just came out of my brain and works in this case. Maybe a new marketing angle. I'll make so many enemies.

  27. I know, right?! The constant barrage of photographers. And don't get me started on the groupies! Shameless!

    Tossing my panties in your general direction,

    Pearl

    :-D
