Jennifer Estep writes the amazing Elemental Assassin's Series and the Mythos Academy books. Both are must reads, must buys and pre-orders for me!
By a Thread the sixth book in the Elemental Assassin's series comes out on the 28th of February and I was lucky enough to already get a copy and well...wow!!! You may have thought it was over but there are still enough bad guys for Gin to kill!
Of course I invited Jennifer on to the blog and seeing as she has become a regular guest I decided to try something different and ask about her 'Favourites'. So I hope you enjoy this new kind of interview and make sure you enter the contest at the bottom for your chance to win a copy of the new release!
Jennifer Estep's Favourties!
JE: At my desk. Boring, I know. LOL.
Favourite book you wrote?
JE: In some ways, Karma Girl is my favorite book because it’s the first one that I had published. But I like all my books, especially when I type “The End” and finish writing them. That always gives me a sense of accomplishment and hope that folks have as much fun reading the book as I did writing it.
Favourite character in one of your books?
JE: Again, I like a lot of my characters, even some of my villains. But I would say the characters that are the most fun for me to write are the ones who are a little outrageous and over-the-top, like Finn from my Elemental Assassin series and Vic from my Mythos Academy series.
JE: Curled up on the couch.
JE: I couldn’t pick just one. I enjoy books by authors like Robin McKinley, Donald Westlake, Ian Fleming, David Eddings, and many, many others.
Favourite book (not written by yourself)?
JE: One of my favorite books is Beauty by Robin McKinley.
Favourite character from a book (not one of yours)?
JE: I like Beauty from the various versions of the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale. Beauty is able to look past the Beast’s appearance to see what a good person he is deep down inside, and I think there’s something really special about that.
JE: I like How I Met Your Mother, but I’m also enjoying Once Upon A Time, NCIS, Burn Notice, Leverage, Hawaii Five-0, and several others. Can you tell that I watch too much TV?
JE: One of my favorite films is The Princess Bride because it’s infinitely quotable. Inconceivable!
JE: Cheese fries
JE: A strawberry cheesecake milkshake
JE: I really like The Killers and musicians like Jimmy Buffett and Kelly Clarkson.
JE: I would just say my family.
JE: I’m a dog person.
JE: Someplace with mountains.
JE: Thanksgiving, because it’s all about family, food, and football.
JE: Gray, rainy days because they’re perfect for curling up with a good book.
Favourite place to be?
JE: Curled up on the couch with a good book
Favourite thing to do to waste time?
JE: Surfing the Internet
