Enjoy getting to know, Cris Pasqueralle:
Thank you for joining me today. Tell us in three words, or less, how you would best describe your writing.
Your book, The Destiny Trilogy, is the first of three in the bestselling series. Share a passage that you’d like for us to enjoy.
The golden light encircled Jack and Maddie, and when the bird moved in to swallow them in its great beak, a blinding flash split the darkness and the eagle vaporized.
You’ve been presented with the opportunity to be a best-selling author, but can never write again, or write forever, but never have a bestseller. Which scenario sounds more tempting?
Write forever. I always have a story to tell and would never be able to hold them in.
If you could live on a college campus and never leave, or live in a small town but be able to travel, which one would you choose?
A small town would suit me just fine.
Okay, how about in an amusement park or in an airport?
Amusement park, nothing like a roller coaster to get the creativity flowing.
And how about Australia or Scotland?
Who is your favorite 90’s band (I’m thinking Counting Crows, Blink 182, Hootie & the Blowfish)?
None that I can think of. I’m a classic rock and oldies man. Give me The Who and Elvis, and I’m good.
Are there any good bands out there today that we’ll talk about in 50 years?
And what about your favorite comedy on TV (My favorite is still The Office)?
I like The Big Bang Theory, but my favorite has to be The Odd Couple.
Is there anything you’re currently working on?
A young adult paranormal detective story, untitled as of yet.
Who is your favorite author and if you could ask him/her one question, what would it be?
Don’t really have one favorite author, but would like to find out how H.G. Wells was able to look into the future so accurately.
Ocean or mountains? Ocean
Yogurt or ice cream? Ice Cream
M&M’s or Skittles? M&M’s
Jimmy Fallon or Stephen Colbert? Neither
Happy or sad ending to a novel? Happy
Beer or wine? Wine
Flying or driving? Flying
Hemingway or Twain? Hemingway
You’re stranded on a desert island and you can take two things with you, as well as two people. What and who are you bringing?
A pen and paper and my children.
You’re able to sit down with any leader in world history. Who would you choose, what would you talk about, and would you rather have him/her over to your house or meet at their place of royalty?
Gandhi, I would meet him at his place, and the subject would be world religions.
You can wish for one thing and one thing only, not world peace and no more wishes. What’s it gonna be?
That I always have enough of whatever it is I need.
