These are the most random Qs I could find and come up with, but it is to show readers how authors are just like them or maybe so different that they are their own species. I have several awesome authors already lined up, but don’t let it scare you to take part though. I’ll be sharing with you all; the answers to the set questions and introduce you to some awesome people, and later, all of this will be used in a statistical type blog. Hopefully, we can keep this going for as long as possible and gain as many author’s inputs to make this thing grow.

But it doesn’t stop there:
~If you are an author who is interested in taking part in this silly game of mine; message, email or find me on a social network.
~If you are a reader and wanna take part; do the same and become part of the fun. (It’ll be really cool to have your stats as well.)
~If you are none of the above…ag, shame. Anyway, if you are an artist, a doctor, a barista or just randomly ended up here; bring it on and we can have a little fun when the stats have grown.

Susanne Leist

Morning person or night owl?
I am definitely a night owl. I find myself awake until 3:00 morning, writing and reviewing. I love the quiet.

Coffee, tea or neither?
I’m an avid coffee drinker. I average about 3 cups a day.

EBooks or printed books?
I love the printed book. I love holding it in my hands. Breathing in its unique smell. Give me a paperback any day over an ebook.

Bookmark or dog-ear pages?
I always bookmark even if I don’t intend to keep the book. I want it looking pristine and clean for the next reader.

Extrovert or Introvert?
I’m an introvert. A watcher of people and human nature. I search out people’s eyes. The truth lies in the eyes.

I perform best under pressure. I can make the important and difficult decisions when needed.

2. I would love to be a best selling author.
3. To be remembered with fondness when I’m gone.

If you could forever break one habit, what would it be?
I love to shop. Handbags are my biggest weakness. But I don’t really want to break this habit.

  1. Nice blog post, Susanne. I love getting to know the person behind the name. From your answers, it sounds as though we share several personality traits (introvert, lack of procrastination, performing under pressure, pizza, reading in bed, I could go on and on),


  2. Fun game! And I agree with a few of your answers… my husband calls me a night owl (he’s currently asleep on the sofa, I’m sitting at the computer thinking I should go to bed as I have to be up for the school run in the morning)


  3. I really like that you’ve included is one has a motto! Nice! Now I gotta think if I even have one! Do I need one? But I “want” one. Okay. Then I need to figure mine out – thanks Susanne for the self-insight push 🙂


  4. Interesting interview! I find it fascinating how people still prefer paperback books to ebooks. Even authors of ebooks! LOL.

    I think I have over 2000 ebooks on my kindle, and I collect more weekly, so I always have a kindle app-device handy to read on my downtime.

    But, for favorite novels, I will go get that paperback or hardback. So I understand.
