Welcome to another edition of 3 Questions Wednesday, and welcome Daphne Self. Let’s get started!
Who is your favorite author?
Daphne: This is like asking what’s my favorite show, or dessert, or kid. I have many favorites so I will list a few: for suspense: Terri Blackstock, for westerns: Louis L’Amour, for thrillers: Eric Landfried and Mike Dellosso, for speculative: Daniel Peyton, Allen Steadham, Joanna White, Paul Regnier, and John Olson/Randy Ingermanson…and that is just a start. Oh, I love Henry van Dyke.
It is too hard to pick one with so many favorites! 🙂 Now here’s a fun question—
If you could write about anyone or anything fiction/nonfiction who or what would you write about?
Daphne: I’m working on writing a middle-grade book about Martin Luther. This requires a lot of researching, but I like it. When it comes to fiction, I write about a variety of things. So I really can’t pinpoint anything. Guess you can say when it comes to fiction, I write about life. With nonfiction, I would write a book that goes into more detail about living with chronic pain and tells the stories of everyday people who live with this condition.
It seems like so many people are struggling with chronic pain and how to manage it in a healthy way. That book could have the potential to help many people. Last question—
If you could spend time with a character from your book or another book whom would it be? And what would you do during that day?
Daphne: This is kind of hard to say. I don’t really live in books. I enjoy reading them, but once I close the book, the story lives in my memory only. If I had to say, it would be … I have no idea. Maybe Jordan and Bopol from Allen Steadham’s Jordan’s World. I would learn the way of the tribes on Algoran. Of Beroan from Shifter by Joanna White. To be able to see him in dragon form would be cool and he could tell me all about the dragon clan. Maybe even Doyle from Eric Landfried’s Solitary Man. We would fight to undercover the truth of why the cannibals existed. Then there is Penny and Jonah from Susan Tuttle’s At First Glance. To spend a day with a sweet couple would be ideal. Being able to talk to Tassie from Judy DuCharme’s Blood Moon Redemption would be nice. I would have coffee with her and discuss the significance of her heritage and history. If I was able to spend time with Travis and Jane in Lucy Thompson’s A Cowboy’s Dare, it would be like living in a John Wayne movie. Laughter, adventure, and mayhem.
You may need a year instead of a day…LOL! Thanks, Daphne, for visiting us on 3 Questions Wednesday, and allowing our readers to know you better.
