'Shadow Fall' by Laura Griffin
Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?
A. I have favorite artists, not songs, because I love to listen to albums straight through. I love U2, Coldplay, Patty Griffin, Allison Krauss and Union Station, Dave Matthews. U2 would have to be my favorite. They're mesmerizing in concert.
Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. At the beach drinking a margarita.
Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?
A. Favorite fictional hero... there are so many amazing men in fiction. Ha. But I might have to go with Holden Caulfield from Catcher in the Rye, even though he's kind of an anti-hero.
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. I would love to be able to play a musical instrument. And as long as this is fantasy, why not the violin? I saw a violin concert once that brought tears to my eyes.
